PowerCat DBTDL and PowerCat DBTDA are used to cure the network and control the rate of cure.
Cross-linking of either one-component or two-component RTV silicone adhesive systems at room temperature may be accelerated by the use of catalysts at low levels.
The catalyst is usually a tin octoate or dibutyltin dilaurate.
The rate of silane crosslinking agent is a function of catalyst concentration and its chemical nature.
Catalyzed systems are especially useful in forming a quick-dry skin that is often desirable in an outdoor application where the weather and elements cannot be controlled.
