Demystifying FAQs on Epoxy, Silicone, and PU Formulations by Veeyor Polymers

At Veeyor Polymers, we understand that navigating the world of epoxy, silicone, and polyurethane (PU) formulations can be complex. To address common queries and provide clarity, we’ve compiled a list of frequently asked questions (FAQs) epoxy, silicone, and polyurethane (PU) formulations to help our customers make informed decisions about their material needs.

Check the following list of frequently asked questions (FAQs) on epoxy, silicone, and polyurethane (PU) formulations

1. Is there a difference between ‘flame resistant’ and ‘flame retardant’ materials?

  • A material labeled as “flame resistant” inherently resists ignition and won’t melt or drip under extreme heat. Conversely, “flame retardant” materials are chemically treated to self-extinguish if ignited, expelling gases to suppress flames. While both offer fire safety benefits, they function differently in fire scenarios.

2. Does Veeyor sell any dispense equipment?

  • While Veeyor Polymers doesn’t sell meter, mix, and dispense (MMD) equipment, we offer support through our veeassure program, ensuring excellence in processes. We collaborate with chosen equipment vendors to provide comprehensive understanding of processing requirements for our materials.

3. Do I need to be specific while mixing? Is a particular mixing ratio necessary?

  • Veeyor Polymers designs epoxy, PU, and silicone systems with specific mixing ratios, providing datasheets and guidelines to customers, along with acceptable tolerances for accurate mixing.

4. Why am I not achieving the right gel time?

  • Gel times are influenced by mass, temperature, and material geometry during curing. Changes in these factors, such as temperature variations or differences in material geometry, can affect gel times. Consult our technical team for guidance on optimizing gel times for your application.

5. Which is better: Epoxy, PU, or Silicone?

  • The choice depends on various factors such as environmental conditions, substrate materials, curing requirements, and performance characteristics. Consulting with our experts will help determine the most suitable formulation for your specific needs.
