Elkem Silicones to launch new silicone gel at Sensors Expo 2019

19 June 2019

Elkem Silicones will expand its Bluesil electronic silicone adhesive (ESA) product line with the launch of its new silicone gel ESA 6009 at the Sensors Expo 2019 tradeshow, June 25-27 at the McEnery Convention Center in San Jose, California.

Bluesil ESA 6009 is a tacky, two-component silicone gel with a coloration feature that enhances visual quality control. Its blue part A and pink part B form a light purple color once the product is mixed properly, allowing the manufacturer to easily ensure full blending has occurred.

ESA 6009 cures at room temperature and helps increase process efficiency in manufacturing. It is delivered as a two-part, low-viscosity liquid component which, once mixed, has a 15-minute room temperature pot life. According to Elkem, this permits fast, flexible and efficient processing of parts without the excessive energy required of traditional heat-curing gels.

Bluesil ESA 6009 exhibits a high level of tack, allowing it to adhere tightly to the sides of enclosures and providing seamless protection of electronic parts against chemical and environmental conditions, including UV resistance degradation. It is also certified to UL 94HB flammability standard, ensuring product safety and compliance with all local and federal safety and environmental regulations.

Along with Bluesil ESA 6009, Elkem Silicones will feature potted junction boxes of Bluesil ESA 7242 and 7244 from its full Bluesil ESA product line at Sensors Expo 2019 Booth 1234. A team of Elkem Silicones experts will be present and ready to discuss silicone solutions.
