DOWSIL™ 9161 is ready-to-mix potting compound. It consists of a white, low viscosity base which cures to a silicone rubber upon the addition of the catalyst which is blue, allowing visual confirmation of mixing.
Silastic 9161 Flit Plug Encapsulant has been formulated especially for use in Flame Proof Connecting Equipment. It can help keep dust and dirt away from

encapsulation of bolted couplers (Flit plugs) use in mining applications.
