Kwik-Gard Sylgard™ 184arrow12Kwik-Gard™ Sylgard™ 184

The Kwik-Gard™ is a specially packaged Sylgard™ 184 silicone that offers a quicker and easier way to apply the silicone, eliminating the messy procedure of preparing the mixture before application. Its special cartridge controls the precise mixing ratio to ensure proper curing. The disposable tip mixes resin and hardener as they are dispensed. Since no air is introduced during mixing, the resin does not need degassing for most applications. The mixed silicone is applied directly to the site, reducing preparation time and material waste. Each Kwik-Gard™ cartridge contains 37 ml of resin and hardener. The dispensing tip has a dead volume of 0.75 ml. Curing time for this silicone is 24 hrs at 25°C, and 15 min. at 150°C.
