  • Best Practices for Dow Dowsil 96-083 Silicone Adhesive

    *See Terms of Use Below

    1. Surface Preparation

      All surfaces should be thoroughly cleaned and/or degreased with Dow Corning® brand OS Fluids, naphtha, mineral spirits, methyl ethyl ketone (MEK) or other suitable solvent. Solvents such as acetone or isopropyl alcohol (IPA) do not tend to remove oils well, and any oils remaining on the surface may interfere with adhesion. Light surface abrasion is recommended whenever possible, because it promotes good cleaning and increases the surface area for bonding. A final surface wipe with acetone or IPA is also useful. Some cleaning techniques may provide better results than others

      users should determine the best techniques for their particular applications.

    2. Mixing

      Dow Corning silicone 1:1 adhesives are supplied in two parts that do not require lot matching. The 1:1 mix ratio, by weight or volume, simplifies the proportioning process. To ensure uniform distribution of filler, Parts A and B must each be thoroughly mixed prior to their combination in a 1:1 ratio. When thoroughly blended, the Part A and B liquid mixture should have a uniform appearance. The presence of light colored streaks or marbling indicates inadequate mixing and will result in incomplete cure.

    3. Deairing/Degassing

      For fast-curing adhesives automated mix and dispense equipment should be utilized. In applications sensitive to air entrapment, de-airing with 28 to 30 inches Hg vacuum is required.
