Evonik Introduces New Silicone Resin: HAPS-Free for High-Heat Applications

SILIKOPHEN AC 950 – the new high-temperature resistant, high-solids silicone resin from Evonik – is HAPS-free and intended to provide protective properties in industrial applications. No toxic substances release during curing, making application of SILIKOPHEN AC 950 possible in enclosed spaces. Smoke formation and VOC content are significantly lower than traditional bake-cure silicone resins, allowing SILIKOPHEN AC 950 to meet the increasing requirements for eco-friendly coatings systems.

SILIKOPHEN AC 950 cures at ambient temperature, utilizing a catalyst, which provides additional advantages. Application displays high and early resistance to aromatic and aliphatic solvents, in addition to impact resistance and non-blocking properties without a bake-cure cycle.

“Oven drying at high temperatures has natural limits,” explains Kirstin Schulz, marketing director for industrial coatings. “Our ambient-curing systems enable coating of large objects such as in industrial plants for water treatment or for energy generation.” Compared to classic bake-cure systems, energy consumption is also lower. Curing at room temperature facilitates a user friendly, economical solution to high-temperature resistant coatings.
