Automotive Materials

The many products of the Shin-Etsu Group companies have diverse properties and are key to the advancement of automotive technologies, leading to smaller, lighter vehicles that are safer, more dependable, and have a lower impact on the environment.

 


Automotive Materials

 

Silicone Greases / Silicone Fluid Compounds
Silicone greases are made by blending antioxidants and other additives into a base of silicone fluid. Unlike ordinary petroleum greases, silicone greases can be used in a wide range of temperatures and have excellent thermo-oxidative stability and water resistance. Silicone fluid compounds are made by blending silica powder into a silicone fluid base. They offer excellent electrical properties and water repellency over a wide temperature range and resist degradation from high temperatures and oxidation.

Fluorosilicone Rubber
With fluorosilicone rubber, you get the excellent features of silicone rubber plus the high resistance to oil and solvents typical of fluoro-rubbers. Fluorosilicone rubber is ideal for applications in which high- and low-temperature resistance, oil resistance and solvent resistance are a must.

SEP Rubber
SEP rubber is a silicone-modified ethylene propylene rubber (EPM, EPDM) that has greater resistance to high- and low-temperatures, weatherability, and workability than ordinary ethylene propylene rubbers. SEP rubber has high mechanical strength in high temperature conditions, comparable to that of high-strength silicone rubber.

LIMS (Liquid Injection Molding System)
LIMS is a fully-automated molding system that uses liquid silicone rubber as the molding compound. After workers load the materials into the equipment, all processes proceed automatically until the molded items are complete. This translates to significant benefits in terms of reduced labor and improved productivity.

Rare Earth Magnets
Rare earth metals are the primary material in these high-performance permanent magnets. All steps of the production process are handled in-house, from separation and refinement of the rare earth elements up to the manufacture of finished magnets. We sell magnets and also provide technical support in the development and application of magnetic circuits. Rare earth magnets are used in motors, generators, sensors and other applications, contributing to devices and machinery that are smaller, lighter and more energy-efficient.

Acrylic Emulsions (halogen-free flame retardant)
Objects treated with these emulsions (by coating or dipping) exhibit excellent flame retardancy. Because the flame retardant contains no halogen, no dioxins are produced during combustion (thus meeting European environmental regulations). Because they contain no formalin or endocrine disruptors, these resins can be used to manufacture eco-friendly products. Uses include car seats and other automotive applications.

Silicone/Acrylic Copolymer Resin
The silicone/acrylic copolymer resin has good compatibility with synthetic resins including PVC and EPDM. The silicone component reduces sliding friction and improves the anti-blocking properties of the surface of treated resins. Silicone/acrylic resin improves anti-wear properties and reduces vibration noise and other unwanted noise.
