Niax Silicone L-5639 is a lower VOC, non-hydrolyzable, mechanical froth surfactant that offers high closed cell content, as well as reduction of both froth density and shear induced cell collapse.
Key Features and Typical Benefits
Stabilization of mechanically frothed foam via:
- Reduced froth density (< 27 pcf)
- Reduced shear-induced cell collapse under doctor blade
- Reduced bubble coalescence in oven cure conditions
- Fine, microporous cell structure
Lower VOC content compared to Niax silicone L-5614
Increased closed-cell content compared to Niax silicone L-5614 and Niax silicone L-5617
Automotive - parts produced via mechanical frothing, integral skin and RIM
Electronics - gasketing, sealing and tapes
Medical - bandages, padding and tapes
