E-mobility in the fast lane

The future of mobility is being redefined, but the shift away frominternal combustion engines to rapidly advancing electric vehicle technologies also means that the demands being put on materialsare increasing dramatically. Companies like Nordmann partner MOMENTIVE Performance Materials are an active driving forcebehind this transformation.

E-mobility, car

Since its first beginnings as a production facility, MOMENTIVE has developed its business site in Waterford, New York into a global innovation center specializing in the production of silicones and advanced materials for high-tech applications. Behind the overhaul and $15 million investment is a vision: being able to fully leverage its breadth of experience, technical knowledge and expertise as a specialty chemicals manufacturer to help customers and industry partners succeed.

Picking up speed with self-lubricating LSR technologies

LSR (liquid silicone rubber) is a platinum-curing, two-component silicone elastomer material that can be injection molded at high temperatures and very fast cycle times. MOMENTIVE’s LSR products represent a versatile class of materials for manufacturing components with complex geometries and precise dimensions through injection molding and which allow for fully-automated burrand waste-free production.

MOMENTIVE’s Silopren LSR 3000 self-lubricating LSRs have a long track record of success with all major automotive and original equipment manufacturers for a wide range of sealing, multicomponent and insulating applications – including seals, O-rings, hoses, spark plug connectors, diaphragms, connector seals and/or powertrain components.
