K 2010 WACKER Showcases Highly Elastic Silicone Elastomers for Engine Mounts  Munich, June, 2010 – At the 18th International Trade Fair for Plastics and Rubber (K 2010), WACKER, the Munich-based chemical company, will demonstrate how a new generation of silicone elastomers can be used to master the growing challenges facing the automotive industry. This product innovation, marketed under the name ELASTOSIL® R 101, is highly elastic and shows excellent fatigue resistance. It can thus significantly improve the damping properties of modern engine mounts. Furthermore, its outstanding temperature tolerance renders the product highly reliable over the vehicle’s entire lifetime. K 2010 will take place from October 27 to November 3 in Düsseldorf, Germany.  Easily processed by injection molding, ELASTOSIL® R 101 offers a number of advantages over organic polymers. These include excellent low-temperature properties that guarantee flexibility down to -50 °C, and heat stability up to 180 °C, which can be improved further with heat stabilizers. A special plus is that its mechanical and dynamic properties remain constant over a wide temperature range.By virtue of these properties, the product meets a major concern of engine designers, namely how to make engines and components ever more compact. The fuel consumption of modern cars is being cut by making continuous reductions to the engine displacement. To ensure that this does not impair performance, combustion tem-peratures are being increased at the same time. This trend calls for tailor-made materials with a higher silicone content in the engine compartment.ELASTOSILThe damping principle is based on two components, a "spring" in the guise of the highly elastic ELASTOSILVisit WACKER at K 2010 in Düsseldorf.
