How It Works
This particular silicone begins to cure when it interacts with carbon dioxide and moisture in the air. Best results when using Elastosil A 16 will come from cleaning your surface thoroughly with some type of solvent like acetone or xylene to make sure your materials are completely free from dirt, grease and debris.
To get even better results, it is recommended to use a 5 mil coating of this particular silicone which can then be treated with cycles of heat in a moist CO2 environment. Details can be found in the TDS and you may contact us for any additional questions.
