Castable Urethanes For OEM Applications


DANVERS, MA — Devcon liquid Flexane® compounds are ideal for a variety of OEM applications including strain relief, potting and encapsulating, forming nonscratching holding fixtures, and edging and sealing felt belts and dryer fabric in the paper industry. Also used for patching cable jackets after splicing, these castable, nonshrinking, waterproof urethanes hold up indoors or outdoors under conditions of abrasion, vibration, and temperature cycling. They withstand service temperatures ranging to 350° F. Liquid Flexanes produce no VOC emissions, cure at room temperature, and are available in several viscosities with cured hardnesses from Shore A 78 (or lower with Flex-Add additive) to Shore A 97, tensile strengths to 3300 psi, tear resistances to 515 pli, and dielectric strengths to 350 volts/mil.

Flexanes for strain relief and potting, encapsulating, and insulating electrical connectors, wires, and cables include Flexane 80 Liquid, a medium-viscosity formula that cures to semi-rigid rubber (Shore A 87). Flexane 94 Liquid is a low-viscosity encapsulant that fills voids completely and cures to a rigid rubber (Shore A 97). Flexane Fast Cure Liquid is a faster-curing formula available in reusable, no-mess 400-ml cartridges for fast, easy dispensing. Cable Cast FR is a multipurpose, flame-retardant urethane which forms an exceptionally flexible, tear-resistant casing (hardness Shore A 78, maximum elongation 800%). Approved by MSHA for the mining industry, it can be used to make fast, economical repairs to cable jackets after wire splicing. It is available in 400-ml cartridges and in a Jacket Repair Kit.

Flexane 80 Liquid, Flexane 94 Liquid, and Flexane Fast Cure Liquid can be used to quickly mold nonscratching holding fixtures for ultrasonic welding and other assembly and testing processes.

Edge & Seal (T-35) and High Temp Edge & Seal (T-36) form flexible, abrasion-resistant edging or coatings on felt belts and dryer fabric in the papermaking industry.

Several products make Flexanes even more versatile. Flex-Add is used with Flexane 80 Liquid to increase flexibility. Flexane Accelerator shortens cure times, even in temperatures as low as 30° F.
