3M™ Dynamar™ Rubber Curative RC 5115 is a solvated rubber curative used primarily in coatings. It has a 50% bisphenol AF crosslinker in ethanol, and offers excellent curative dispersion characteristics in a number of rubber applications for fluroelastomers.
3M™ Dynamar™ Rubber Curative RC 5115 is a liquid curative that offers fast and easy incorporation into solvent-based FKM solution coatings. This transparent liquid has specific gravity of 1.04. It is incorporated as a rubber curative that helps to create a finished product whereby the polymer is converted into a more durable material with the addition of the curative. This happens with the formation of cross-links (bridges) between individual polymer chains. Once the bridges are formed, the rubber is transformed into a durable, flexible and long-lasting material that can be used in several applications, including head gaskets and gasket applications. Having a curative with good dispersion characteristics is essential. Poor dispersion can affect the final mechanical properties and potentially produce an inferior product.
One big benefit of using Dynamar rubber curative RC 5115 is that it is a liquid, sold in 1 gallon quantities. Liquids – as opposed to a solid curative – make it much easier to incorporate into the coating. This in turn allows for an easier and more efficient production process. 3M, a company with decades of experience researching and manufacturing, is the only company that sells this product in liquid form. This unique product is a cross-linking agent used for solvent coating applications. This product is backed by knowledgeable 3M technical service representatives, who are able to develop custom compound formulations to suit your needs.
