LOW FRICTION COATING FOR SILICONE – STC 370HP
Natron STC 370HP is a clear-translucent matte coating designed to reduce the coefficient of friction (Low CoF silicone coating) on silicone rubber. This coating reduces the friction force of molded and extruded silicone elastomers. Another term for this coating is silicone soft touch coating for silicone rubber. This coating uses the SC45XHP catalyst to activate the soft touch coating.
This soft-touch coating is suitable for medical device applications, electronics, and other products designed to contact the human body. The function of this soft touch coating for silicone is to protect underlying prints, markings, rubber products, and for decoration. It can also increase the product’s value.
Additionally, this coating coats faux leather.
What is the coefficient of friction of silicone?
Natural silicone rubber is quite tacky. Generally, the silicone coefficient of friction is approximately 1.0 in most cases. So, use the STC 370HP silicone coating with a low coefficient of friction to reduce silicone rubber friction.
The soft-feel silicone coating Natron STC 370HP is intended for spray coating onto silicone rubber products. The coating needs to be dried and cured at 275°F–400°F, depending on how dense the silicone substrate is.
The SC45XHP catalyst is available in 100g, 200g, and 1 kg size containers.
Boston Industrial Solutions, Inc. designed and formulated STC 370HP for spray coating on silicone rubber products.
