  • Best Practices for Dow Fluorogel 4-8022

    *See Terms of Use Below

    1. Mixing

      Some gels are supplied in bladder packs that avoid direct air contact with the liquid gel components, allowing use of air pressure over the pack in a pressure pot for dispensing. Do not apply air pressure directly to the liquid gel surface (without the bladder pack) as the gel can become supersaturated with air and bubbling can occur when the material is dispensed and cured. Use of bladder packs prevents bubbling, maintains cleanliness and avoids gel contamination. Gels can be dispensed manually or by using one of the available types of meter mix equipment. If possible, the potential for entrapment and incorporation of gas (typically air) should be considered during design of the part and selection of a process to dispense the gel. This is especially important with higher-viscosity and fastercuring gels. Degassing at >28 inches (10-20 mm) Hg vacuum may be necessary to ensure a void-free, protective layer.

    2. Testing

      If a substrate or material is questionable with respect to potentially causing inhibition of cure, a small-scale compatibility test should be run to ascertain suitability in a given application. The presence of liquid or uncured product at the interface between the questionable substrate and the cured gel indicates incompatibility and inhibition of cure. In certain situations, toughened gels may appear fully cured but have reduced or no adhesion. This may result from slight inhibition at the interface.
