SilFORT* coatings enable plastics and polymers to replace glass and metal in exterior and interior applications. SilFORT hardcoats offers outstanding UV protection and resistance to abrasion, chemicals and solvents. With SilFORT coatings, the color, gloss and light transmission longer for improved performance and durability. Our new SILFORT AS4700 hardcoat combines outstanding protection with best-in-class light transmission rates of up to 93% for applications like autonomous driving sensors. Learn More
Primer-less adhesion is one of the most interesting potential benefits of liquid silicone rubber (LSR). At K 2019, Momentive will introduce its new family of Silopren* LSR 27x9, which offers excellent adhesion to polycarbonate, PBT and co-polyesters. The focus area of these materials is innovative hard-soft combinations in consumer goods and healthcare products, featuring integrated functionality such as sealing, dampening or haptic elements.

At K 2019, Momentive will showcase the capability of its Silopren LSR 2759. In collaboration with Elmet and Wittmann-Battenfeld, Momentive will be featuring a live injection molding live demo in which a plastic frame made of Covestro’s Apec® 1745 will be a second shot directly over-molded with Momentive’s self-bonding LSR, dispensing a final part in only 40 seconds. The final output is a prototype “butterfly” cell phone holder that can be attached to the ventilation panels of a car. Conventional cell phone holders for cars are typically assembled with many single plastic and metal parts. The prototype demonstrates how a focused design optimization can eliminate cost intensive assembly steps.
