Coatings & dispersions

Silicone coatings and dispersions for protection in power electronics and biocompatibility in medical devices

NuSil® coatings and dispersions from Avantor® create and protect critical parts or technologies for a wide range of applications in the healthcare, space, aviation, defense, optoelectronics and electronics industries.

NuSil silicone coatings and dispersions are elastomers dispersed in a solvent for ease of application. They can be applied in very thin layers to evenly coat a device or surface or used to create a film or thin-walled part with strong elastomeric properties.

NuSil’s broad range of silicone coatings and dispersions offer numerous options to accommodate processing requirements and functional properties:  

  • One-part or two-part coatings: Our coatings are available as a one-part formulation with no mixing required or two-part configuration offering a longer work time.  
  • Solvent-based or solventless coatings: Solvent-based coatings are ideal for processes where the silicone is applied as a thin film coating. Solvent-less coatings are non-flammable and do not require controlled environments for handling.
  • Special features: NuSil coating options include hydrocarbon-resistance, lubrication, low coefficient of friction and high clarity formulations.

Customization mastered

No matter what kind of silicone product you are formulating, NuSil has the expertise, processes and proprietary technology to customize our silicone polymers and catalysts based on your unique specifications. We leverage our insight into the unique silicone chemistry and material properties to supply both off-the-shelf and custom formulations tailored to your process and end application performance requirements.
