World class silicones for worldwide solutions

How do you increase the cure speed of a silicone?

1-Part Condensation Cure:

Increasing the humidity

2 Part: Silcosets:

Increase the amount of catalyst to a Maximum of 1% - Apply heat, again not more than 40C

Condensation Cure Moulding Rubbers (900 Series):

Use Cat Red 5 – see technical data sheet for more information

Addition Cure 2-Part:

Increase temperature using a curing oven – see individual data sheets. It should be noted however, that the slower the curing of silicone rubber, the better the quality and durability. You will note that any testing undertaken is done after 7 days, when the rubber has fully cured and all volatile products have evolved at which point the rubber has reached its optimum properties.
