TECHNICAL INFORMATION
NUFLEX 302 HI- TEMP GASKET MAKING SILICONE SEALANT


NuFlex 302 Hi-Temp Red Gasket Maker is a one-part non-slumping silicone sealant with the consistency of toothpaste. It cures when it is exposed to moisture in the air to form a tough rubbery seal. NuFlex 302 Hi-Temp was formulated to perform at temperatures ranging from 65 to 260C (-85 to 500F) under continuous operating conditions. During intermittent exposure, NuFlex 302 Hi-Temp will withstand temperatures as high as 316C (600F). It is ideal for a number of sealing and bonding applications.

FEATURES AND TYPICAL USES:
The high temperature properties of NuFlex 302 Hi-Temp make it ideally suited for: Sealing and encapsulating heating elements in appliances, aerospace gasketing, moving oven belts, industrial ovens and bag filters on smoke stacks. Other critical bonding, sealing, potting, encapsulating and protective coatings where parts must perform at high temperatures. There are also many applications for NuFlex 302 Hi-Temp in and around automobiles, RVs, boats and in small engines such as: Making and/or replacing expensive paper and cork gaskets in water pumps, timing chain/belt covers, rocker covers, heat risers, and any area where high temperatures and vibration are prevalent. NuFlex 302 Hi-Temp is oxygen sensor safe. Do not use in direct contact with fuels such as gasoline or diesel fuel.

SURFACE PREPARATION AND APPLICATION:
Nuflex 302 Hi-Temp is supplied ready-to-use. It flows readily from its container under pressure. The paste-like consistency makes it easy to work with. A spatula, wooden paddle or wetted finger can be used to tool the surface.
Tack-Free Time: Curing progresses inward from the surface. At conditions of 25C (77F) and 50% relative humidity, a tack-free skin forms within 10-20 minutes. Tooling should be completed immediately after application. If masking tape is used to mask an area it must be removed before the tack-free skin forms.
Cure-Time: Cure time is affected by relative humidity, degree of confinement and cross-sectional thickness of the sealant. Sections up to 3.2 mm (1/8) thick become rubbery solids in about 24 hours at room temperature and 50% relative humidity to a Shore A durometer hardness rating of about 25 points. After 3 days at room temperature, this durometer hardness levels off to about 32 points In applications where NuFlex 302 Hi-Temp may be partially or totally confined during cure, the time required for proper cure is generally lengthened by the degree of confinement. Every application involving confinement during cure should be thoroughly tested before production commences. Curing time increases with the thickness of the sealant. A 12.7 mm (1/2) cross section for example, may require 3 or 4 days for complete cure. However, the cure will have penetrated the outer 3.2mm (1/8) in about 24 hours.

CAUTIONS:
Use in well ventilated areas and avoid breathing vapors. On contact, uncured sealant irritates eyes. Flush eyes with luke warm water. Call physician. Avoid skin contact and do not ingest. Keep out of reach of children. For complete safety information consult Material Safety Data Sheet. Sealant releases acetic acid (vinegar-like odour) during cure .
