R31-2186 and R32-2186 flowable, platinum-catalyzed, addition-cured adhesives were developed in two versions: an RTV version that will cure in four to six hours, and a heat-accelerated version that will cure at 150C in 15 min or at 100C in 30 min. The adhesives are two-part, 1:1 mix silicone systems for bonding silicone elastomers to each other and to some metals and plastics.
