SILIKOPHEN® AC 900 and SILIKOPHEN® AC 1000 - The new ambient curing silicone resins for high temperature industrial applications

SILIKOPHEN® AC 900 and SILIKOPHEN® AC 1000 were designed for the high temperature applications of industrial objects, muffler coatings and oven coatings. Due to their ambient temperature curing capabilities, a feature highly coveted by manufacturers, these resins permit energy-saving coating application of large objects which would otherwise prove difficult in a more traditional oven-cure.

Formulations with SILIKOPHEN® AC 900 and SILIKOPHEN® AC 1000 provide excellent long-term heat resistance as well as early chemical resistance after application.

SILIKOPHEN® AC 900 is very flexible during heating and cool down. It is also highly compatible with organic resins and shows excellent wetting properties with a wide range of pigments and fillers.

SILIKOPHEN® AC 1000, on the other hand, provides excellent color stability.

Having a very low VOC content, both products are environmentally friendly and provide multifaceted, resource-efficient corrosion protection in high temperature applications.
