New rubber bonding adhesives to be seen FAST Live

When Willenhall Rubber & Industrial Supplies identified a need to bond ply sheets of Fabreeka rubber together, they turned to a recently introduced new-generation high strength RTV silicone based adhesive from Techsil.

RTV10533 is just one of Techsil’s extensive portfolio of bonding products that have become popular across manufacturing industry, and this particular single-part adhesive is used in a wide range of applications, especially those involving textiles and rubbers.

Techsil states that RTV10533 has also become the product of choice for many users who seek to bond silicone coated fabrics. Although it can be used with a primer, many customers have found that this translucent, flowable adhesive will bond perfectly to bare surfaces that are well prepared and clean without a primer.

Further advantages stated by Techsil are that the compound is air cured with a tack-free curing time of 10 minutes, and that RTV10533 offers excellent temperature tolerance too: it can be safely used in applications as cold as -60°C and as hot as +200°C.

In addition to RTV10533, visitors to the Techsil stand at FAST Live can also see, evaluate and discuss hundreds of other products and solutions covering adhesives, sealants and application equipment from the company’s range.

Entry to FAST Live is free of charge by pre-registration. The event takes place at the acclaimed British Motor Museum on 12th March next year: the venue is located at Gaydon, adjacent to the Aston Martin and JLR plants south of Warwick and just 1 minute from the M40. There is abundant free parking, and for visitors arriving before 1030, a free bacon roll and brew too. Tea and coffee is provided free of charge all day at the event, and pre-registered exhibition visitors can also visit the superb Museum, with almost 300 fascinating cars on show, free of charge too (standard adult entry fee otherwise is £14.50).
