Mg Chemicals is proud to announce the addition of the WSC4029 Weatherstrip coating to its extensive line of Momentive Performance Materials. This three component matt black water based silicone coating system is used in numerous automotive applications by helping impart a high level of mar and abrasion resistance and reduce friction related noise due to vibration of body parts such as doors. It thermally cures to form a resilient silicone film and can help provide substrate surfaces such as EPDM rubber with lubricating water repellent and easy release characteristics. WSC4029 coating system comprises a black base emulsion (WSC4029AC or WSC4029AC+ with better foam control properties), a cross linker (WSC4029B) and a catalyst (WSC4029D).

MG Chemicals is a Momentive Performance Materials Authorized North American Distributor offering an extensive variety of Momentive silicone based Adhesives, Sealants, Potting and Encapsulating compounds.

RoHS (Reduction of Hazardous Substances) is a piece of legislation created by the EU to reduce the harmful effects of substances found in electrical and electronic products, and improves the welfare of consumers, distributors, manufacturers, and the environment.

Since the early 20th century, chemicals have been introduced into manufacturing and the harmful effects of such chemicals has not been widely understood. In response to such problem, the EU has been introducing legislation to try to reduce the use of harmful substances. On January 27th, 2003, the European Union created the RoHS directive 2002/95/EC, which prevents the use of harmful substances in products.

In the article linked below, you can find out what RoHS entails.

Mr. Roy Moquin, from Willow Beach Ontario wrote to us to let us know how our 4229 Connector coating saved him time and money in repairing his damaged outboard boat engine! Read his integral comment below and see how MG Chemicals is really One Company… many solutions.

 

“Hello

I just wanted to send a note of thanks for your product 55ml bottle of Connector Coating

I have a 2010 Evinrude 90hp Etec outboard on my boat that I stored in my garage over winter

Unfortunately sometime during storage I picked up some stowaways... mice had found a way into the engine cover and started packing insulation from my garage into the engine tightly packing the space behind wiring and oil injection lines.

As I pulled out the stuffing... I came across my wiring harness for the alternator stator - 6 wires. 3 of them with completely eaten away insulation, 2 with partial bits exposing wire and one with more than an inch of wire completely eaten away.

Advice from marine mechanic indicated it would be ok to "solder something in there" and wrap it up somehow.

I bought the last bottle in the store and some automotive grade heavy grade wire for the patch it was quick work to solder in the repair and separated the other exposed wires.

Everything was coated about 5 times with Connector Coating

I noticed flexibility to withstand vibration, great strength to physically protect the connection from stress

Next day we cruised for 8 hours on the warm weekend on Lake Simcoe and the connections look like they will be intact for the life of the motor!  Saved us serious dollars and time to replace expensive marine parts

Now I have people lining up to fix iphone cables - so much better than heat shrink!

Thanks everyone!  I'll be getting an extra bottle ( or can!!) because I see some many places that need this stuff!
