Loctite SI 5900 Rtv Silicone Flange Sealant Black 300ml
- Tensile Shear Strength : 1.2 N/mm²
- Viscosity : Thixotropic paste
- Key Substrates : Metal, Plastic
- Color : Black
- Curing Type : Room temperature vulcanizing (RTV)
- Application : Sealing
LOCTITE SI 5900 is a low strength, moisture-cured, thixotropic silicone-based paste. Typical applications include stamped sheet metal covers (timing covers and oil sumps). It exhibits a rapid skin-over time of 15 min and is suitable for gaps up to 1 mm. As a single component it requires no mixing.
- Good oil resistance
- Withstands joint movement
- Adheres to metal, plastic, glass and ceramic materials
- Reduces migration of liquid after application
(timing covers and oil sumps) where good oil resistance and
the ability to withstand high joint-movement is required.
It withstands on line, low pressure tests carried out before
product begins to cure. The thixotropic nature of LOCTITE® SI
reduces the migration of liquid product after application
to the substrate. LOCTITE® SI 5900®
has an excellent
adhesion profile to an outstanding wide variety of plastic
substrates, as well as glass, ceramics and metals.
Registered to NSF Category P1 for use as a sealant where
there is no possibilty of food contact in and around food
processing areas. Note: This is a regional approval. Please
contact your local Technical Service Center for more
information and clarification.
TYPICAL CURING PERFORMANCE
The graph below shows shear strength developed with time
on Aluminum lapshears at a bond gap of 0.5 mm. Cure
condition 23±2 °C, 60±5% RH. Strength is determined
according to ISO 4587.
Depth of Cure
The depth of cure depends on temperature and humidity.
Depth of cure was measured on strip pulled from a
ramped PTFE mold (maximum depth 10 mm).
This product is not recommended for use in pure oxygen
and/or oxygen rich systems and should not be selected as
a sealant for chlorine or other strong oxidizing materials.
For safe handling information on this product, consult the
Safety Data Sheet (SDS).
Directions for use:
- For best performance bond surfaces should be clean and
free from grease.
- Moisture curing begins immediately after the product is
exposed to the atmosphere, therefore parts to be
assembled should be mated within a few minutes after the
product is dispensed.
- The bond should be allowed to cure (e.g. seven days),
before subjecting to heavy service loads.
- Excess material can be easily wiped away with non-polar
- For full automatic applications a volumetric dispensing
system is recommended.
