NuSil silicone adhesives offer excellent bonding to a variety of substrates, including silicones, metals, polyurethanes and a variety of plastics. The right NuSil silicone adhesive can help you achieve increased throughput, improved adhesion and greater reliability and durability.

Depending on your assembly needs, NuSil offers silicone adhesives to boost manufacturing throughout or increase performance:

  • One-part Room Temperature Vulcanized (RTV) silicone adhesives: Our moisture cure formulations can be applied without mixing and are ideal for use with temperature-sensitive components.
  • Two-part RTV or heat curing silicone adhesives: These platinum-catalyzed formulations cure rapidly without byproducts or leaving groups and are ideal for use where faster throughput is desired.
  • Dispersed silicone adhesives: NuSil dispersed adhesives create a thin, uniform layer, and their low viscosity allows them to flow into hard-to-reach areas.
  • Film adhesives & tapes: An alternative to traditional liquid adhesives, our double-sided tapes and film adhesives are sold in sheet form with release liners and an internal structural support layer. They offer reliable bond line control in a peel-and-stick format.
  • Pressure-Sensitive Adhesives (PSAs): This solvent-based, removable adhesive is non-curing but forms a strong bond when pressure is applied.
  • Soft Silicone Adhesives (SSAs): Our SSAs provide permeability, protection and atraumatic removal from human skin, making them ideal for applications such as wound care, scar management and wearable monitoring devices.

Our primers can be used to improve the bond between the silicone adhesive and the substrate.


Silicone adhesives offer efficient, biocompatible and long-lasting ways to bond substrates together when assembling devices such as catheters, pacemakers, cochlear implants and aesthetic implants.
