LSR for engine components.
GE Bayer Silicones, a joint venture of GE's Advanced Materials business, has launched a new grade of liquid silicone rubber (LSR) that
promises excellent high-temperature performance for automotive engine
parts. Demonstrating the ability to withstand exposure to underhood
temperatures reaching 190[degrees]C as well as good oil resistance, LSR
2670 is already being used to make gaskets by European automakers, says
A liquid silicone rubber complete with necessary additives, LSR
2670 is a ready-to-use two-component system that provides excellent
mold-filling characteristics. It can be used to mold complex parts such
as charge-air cooler gaskets with just one injection point, while
providing fast cure times for high-throughput mass production, says GE.
