Mixing and Degassing Silicon

Mixing silicon requires precision and repeatability. Multi-component reactive systems with various viscosity and additives are used in sealants, lubricants, bio, electrical and thermal applications. Industries served include manufacturing, personal care products, medical, electronics, coatings, automotive, and many more! These materials all have unique formulation and processing demands that are easy to overcome with the SpeedMixer. We have your polysiloxanes mastered

Our Epoxy Mixing Expertise

Silicone

  1. Platinum, peroxide, tin catalyzed, moisture cure chemistries
  2. RTV
  3. Ultra-low outgassing (VOC)
  4. Vacuum degassing for optical bond materials and high temperature cures
  5. Rapid silicone emulsions

Problem: Difficulty creating repeatable, homogeneous dispersion of low proportion crosslinkers (10:1, 100:1, etc)

Solution: The unique flow of materials in a SpeedMixer ensures that even the smallest amount of material is homogenized. Simple control over mixing speed and duration enables users full control over material processing. Since SpeedMixing is a non-invasive mixing technology, there are no blades or other physical inhibitors inside the mixing container which could interrupt flow of material and potentially create “hot spots” in a dispersion. Bladeless mixing eliminates the potential for material loss on stirring blades, propellers, or homogenizing heads, guaranteeing precise and repeatable results in every mix.

Problem: Incorporating and deagglomerating fillers and additives.

Solutions: Many adhesives and coatings rely on the addition of modifiers for viscosity and rheology. Shear force created within the mixing container will quickly and easily deagglomerate modifiers such as fumed silica, carbon black, cotton flock, carbonaceous materials, microspheres, etc, and has been found to more effectively wet out high surface area fillers. If optical clarity is an important factor in the final product, vacuum mixing can quickly clarify material by removing adsorbed air or moisture.
