General Electric Silpruf 2000 series is a one-component, high-strength, neutral cure silicone sealant and adhesive for use in structural glazing and on a wide variety of materials in new or remedial weatherproofing applications. SCS2008 light gray is supplied as a paste and upon cure, produces a durable, formed-in-place silicone rubber joint sealant. Durability wise, GE Silpruf 2000 series cured silicone rubber exhibits excellent long term resistance to natural weathering including extreme temperatures, ultraviolet radiation, rain, and snow, with negligible change in elasticity. GE SCS 2000 SilPruf’s combination of high tensile strength, high tear strength and the capacity to absorb high deformations (elongation) make this product an outstanding choice for protective glazing designs and seismic applications. GE SCS 2000’s VOC is significantly lower than the U.S. Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (L.E.E.D.) program’s requirements. Neutral cure byproduct with low odor. It’s ±50% movement capacity can accommodate 50% movement in both extension and compression and has excellent recovery after cycling. Questions? Contact Us.
SCS2000 sealant is recommended for the following applications:
- Between dissimilar or similar materials in either new or remedial glazing and sealing applications
- Around window perimeters and punched openingsStructural Glazing• With sufficient project reviewProtective Glazing• Successfully tested in protective glazing designs, may be considered a candidate for such applicationsAdhesive
- Applied in panel stffener applications
- Useful for adhering US1100 and UST2200 UltraSpan pre-cured silicone weatherstrip product line
Sealants may not adhere or maintain long-term adhesion to substrates if the surface is not prepared and cleaned properly before sealant application. Using proper materials and following prescribed surface preparation and cleaning procedures is vital for sealant adhesion. IN ALL CASES IT IS IMPORTANT TO CONFIRM THE ACCEPTIBILITY OF EACH SEALANT-SUBSTRATE COMBINATION WITH A LAB OR SITE ADHESION TEST PRIOR TO PROCEEDING WITH PROJECT INSTALLATION. MPM can provide lab and field adhesion testing information and suggestions to user upon request.
