NUSIL ANNOUNCES THERMALLY CONDUCTIVE SILICONES FOR HEALTHCARE APPLICATIONS

Thermally Conductive Silicones For Healthcare ApplicationsPST High Wycombe 21st January, 2010
NuSil Technology LLC, the global leader in silicone materials for the healthcare and pharmaceutical industries, introduces two thermally conductive healthcare silicone elastomers. These elastomers can be used as a cure-in-place adhesive or potting compound between electrical/electric components and heat sinks as part of a thermal management regime to keep medical devices operating at their optimal levels.

MED-2980 and MED-2955 are able to wet out on a variety of substrates to ensure excellent contact between uneven surfaces. The low modulus characteristic of these elastomers ensures that, during operational thermal cycling, the bond line will not warp or break sensitive electronic components.

Lubricious Silicone Coatings and LubricantsBenefits of Siliconization January 2011
Silicones are known for their feel-enhancing effects and lubricity. Silicones provide effective lubrication solutions for many medical device applications by:

  • Spontaneously spreading out in thin films
  • Reducing the coefficient of friction, insertion force, and machine-ability
  • Minimizing break-loose and extrusion forces
  • Alleviating any discomfort a patient may experience during insertion and removal of a device

Controlled Volatility RTV Silicone Foam (CV-2391)NuSil Technology Announce
Silicone Coating with Low Coefficient of Friction
R-2182 is a two-part, low coefficient of friction silicone coating dispersed in xylene.

Silicone elastomers inherently have a high degree of surface tack and a tendency for blocking (sticking to themselves by virtue of chemical affinity). These inherent features may be problematic for applications requiring a molded or extruded silicone part to move or slide with minimal friction. This can be specially problematic in cases where the silicone is likely to fold and unfold or spool together during storage.
