Modifying silicone elastomersThe Fraunhofer Institute for Silicate Research ISC

Standard silicones are not suitable for every application. Starting from standard raw materials, CeSMa offers tailor-made material solutions for special applications in the automotive sector, in electronics, engineering, aerospace, energy technology or medical technology. In doing so, CeSMa relies on many years of experience in the chemical and technical field of smart materials.


Adjustment of material properties:

  • Processing (potlife, viscosity)
  • Mechanical properties (Youngs’s modulus, viscoelastic properties, fatigue strength)
  • Electrical properties (conductivity, dielectric strength)
  • Optical properties (transparency, colored silicones)
  • Magnetic properties (permeability)

We offer:

  • Development of customized silicones
  • Material alignment to your process
  • Development of new processes for manufacturing and processing
  • Process optimization in terms of material and production costs
  • Silicone analyses
  • Market research and consulting

You will find further information to our Smart Materials at the CeSMa Homepage.
