Visit Elkem Silicone's team at JEC World 2022, Hall 5 booth F86!

JEC World in Paris is the only tradeshow that unites the global composite industry. Elkem Silicones will be exhibiting at JEC World 2022, the leading composite manufacturing event in the world, joining this show is an opportunity we cannot miss. The participation to JEC World gives us a unique opportunity to meet our customers and the players of this innovative industry.

Composites, a revolutionary material that enables designers and engineers to craft complex and very resistant low-weight parts that can be molded in a great variety of shapes. For many years now, composites have gradually entered into our everyday lives and are today used by a wide range of manufacturers that serve consumers and industrial markets.

Elkem Silicones supports & develops solutions for the composite Industry for actors along the value chain, from silicone Release Coatings and RTV2 used for prepreg production, to high performance silicone elastomers for production of reusable vacuum bags.

The new BLUESIL™ RTV 3723 has been developed in partnership with a French boat manufacturer to produce silicone reusable vacuum bags used for the processing of boat hulls applying the "vacuum resin infusion" technology, and the new BLUESIL™ RTV 3723 is specifically designed to have an improved resistance to polyesters resins but the chemical resistance to other resins has equally improved with this product development.

Many other applications in the composite field exist for silicones and we are convinced that there are plenty of applications to create when combining the dynamics of the composite market with the excellent properties of silicones.
