Optically clear, easy-to-mix coating ideal for engineering applications

R-2183 retains elasticity and resists breakdown at extreme temperatures.

“This material’s broad operating temperature range makes it an ideal coating in engineering applications involving extreme heat or cold,” said Brian Burkitt, Product Director – Engineering Materials.

NuSil Technology LLC (http://www.nusil.com), the global leader in silicone materials for the aerospace, aircraft and automotive industries, presents R-2183, a low-viscosity silicone elastomer dispersed in xylene. R-2183 retains elasticity at extremely low temperatures, as well as resists breakdown at elevated temperatures up to 300ºC.

R-2183 can be sprayed, knife coated, or spin cast to create a versatile, flexible coating with excellent physical properties. For instance, R-2183 exhibits a tear strength of 175 ppi (30.9 kN/m), a tensile strength of 1,550 psi (10.7 MPa), and an elongation of 800%. A tough, optically clear material, it is great for use as an encapsulant and can also be heat cured into a thin elastomeric film.

“R-2183’s broad operating temperature range of -140ºC (-220°F) to 300ºC (572°F) makes it an ideal coating in engineering applications involving extreme heat or cold,” said Brian Burkitt, Product Director – Engineering Materials.

R-2183 is a two-part, addition cure silicone dispersion with a 1:1 mix ratio for ease of use.
