Adjustable Height – Electric Roll Mill

Electric Roll Mill for Milling and Calendering 2 Part Silicone

Height adjustable two roll mill – CE Certification CE_Logo

For the mixing of HCR, silicones etc. All ductile polymers that cannot be mixed in a mixer may be mixed in this two roll mill. This big machine is capable of mixing op to 1,25 kg of material depending on the hardness. This machine has been developed to be able to work both standing or sitting. This machine offers the option of mixing large quantities of material in a standing position as well as colouring small amounts of material when sitting. The large space under the bottom roll offers a wide degree of freedom to the operator around the mixing rolls. This machine will be delivered with a desired safety device. All controls are ‘hold to run’.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

Optically Clear Silicone Gels

 BRIGHTER, SHARPER, MORE RUGGED – NUSIL’S NEW OPTICALLY CLEAR SILICONE GELS ENABLE NEXT-GENERATION DIGITAL DISPLAYS

In response to market demands for ever-smaller, ever-higher-definition LCD displays that can withstand an increasingly broad range of environments and conditions, Polymer Systems Technology Ltd has added two new Optically Clear Silicone Gels, LS1-3443 and Gel 8136, to their full line of silicones for solid state lighting. The newest gels offer greater light output and optical clarity while also improving both impact- and heat-resistance. This enables LCD screen manufacturers to create next-generation displays for smart phones and stadium screens and everything in between that are sharper, brighter and more rugged.Manufacturers face a number of challenges when creating LCD displays that can be viewed in a wide range of light conditions, or when developing smaller, thinner screens to meet the need for wearable or more portable personal electronics. For example, bright sunlight makes screen viewing particularly difficult as it can create display washout, but increasing display brightness to address this problem drains battery power and generates unwanted heat. And as displays get thinner, there is a higher risk of breakage and lower device durability.PST helps manufacturers address these challenges by offering Optically Clear Silicone Gels with a range of reflective index (RI) values from 1.38 to 1.54. With a choice of RI values, engineers can match the optical index of their screen’s cover glass with the silicone gel that backs it to eliminate display washout in bright light without the need to increase LED output. The gels also provide soft and low modulus to absorb stress, reduce impact and improve ruggedness in newer, thinner displays.

PST’s newest gels, LS1-3443 and Gel-8136, have been specifically optimized for harsh environments, allowing manufacturers to increase light output while minimizing power consumption and lowering the risk of product yellowing over time.

LS1-3443 and Gel-8136 were developed because clients came to us looking for gel solutions that didn’t currently exist,” said Derek Williams-Wynn Director of PST. “When manufacturers are looking to develop truly breakthrough products, we have the track record, the highly specialized resources, and the willingness to help them do just that.”

NUSIL AND POLYMER SYSTEMS TECHNOLOGY INTRODUCES TWO NEW SILICONE MATERIALS FOR POTTING AND ENCAPSULATING AT PHOTONICS WEST 2013

New versatile silicones provide durable support and protection in electronic
and photonic applications.

Silicone Materials For Potting And Encapsulating

High Wycombe, January 30, 2013 — (http://www.silicone-polymers.co.uk), aUK leader in silicone materials for the medical implants, aerospace, electronics and engineering markets, will officially debut two new silicone products in 2013. NuSil’s Engineering and Electronics business unit has developed LS2-6140, an optically clear primerless encapsulant, and R-2175, a flowable, thermally stable potting compound, as part of concentrated efforts to increase market specialization in the fast-paced industries sectors it serves.

LS2-6140 is a low viscosity, optically clear silicone encapsulant that offers strong adhesion to ceramic and common plastics used for electronic components without the need for primer. This versatile elastomer has a 45 Type A durometer and is optically stable with a refractive index (RI) of 1.40. Ideal for use in High Power and UV LED applications, it can be used to bond or encapsulate optical components that will be exposed to high lumen intensity at elevated temperatures. The low viscosity of LS2-6140 allows for processing by way of spin coating, dispensing, casting or compression molding.

R-2175 is a black, pourable, versatile silicone potting compound adept at providing support for electronics packages such as power supplies, sensors, and AC/DC and DC/DC high efficiency convertors. Its rheology yields a conformal material that works well with complex geometries and its 0.4 W/mK thermal conductivity helps dissipate heat. R-2175 comes in a variety of packaging configurations to ease transition into any manufacturing environment.

LS2-6140 and R-2175 are unique materials designed to support and protect photonic and electronic systems. PST is pushing forward and developing such products for Engineering, Electronics, and Photonics in an expanding silicone technology world, offering to meet the growing needs of these industries. LS2-6140 and R-2175 have been tested per UL 94 and passed V0 and are REACH and ROHS compliant.
