    Business Information
    Shelf Life Details Shelf life is indicated by the “Use Before” date found on the product label. For best results, Dow Corning RTV adhesives should be stored at or below 25°C (77°F). Special precautions must be taken to prevent moisture from contacting these materials. Containers should be kept tightly closed with head or air space minimized. Partially filled containers should be purged with dry air or other gases, such as nitrogen.
    Shelf Life Temperature (°F) <77
    Shelf Life Type from date of manufacture

    Not Good For
    Don't Use With Plastic, rubber, Non-reactive metal substrates, Nonreactive plastic surfaces, Teflon®, Polyethylene, Polypropylene, Plastic or rubber substrates that are highly plasticized
  • Best Practices for Dow Dowsil SE 9184 RTV 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

      No mixing required

    3. Deairing/Degassing

      Automated airless dispense equipment can be used to reduce or avoid the need to de-air. If de-airing is required to reduce voids in the cured elastomer, consider a vacuum de-air schedule of >28 inches Hg for 10 minutes or until bubbling subsides.

    4. Curing

      The one-part moisture-cure adhesives are generally cured at room temperature and in a range of 0 to 80 percent relative humidity. Greater than 90 percent of their full physical properties should be attained within 4 to 7 hours depending on the product chosen. These materials are not typically used for highly confined or deep section cures. Materials will generally cure about 0.25 inch (6.35 mm) per 7 days.

    5. Testing

      Substrate Testing: To ensure maximum bond strength for adhesives on a particular substrate, 100 percent cohesive failure of the adhesive in a lap shear or similar adhesive strength test is needed. This ensures compatibility of the adhesive with the substrate being considered. Also, this test can be used to determine minimum cure time or to detect the presence of surface contaminants such as mold release agents, oils, greases and oxide films.
