Provil Novo – Silicones
• High precision impressions (<0.1 µm)
Due to the special material properties of Provil Novo, it can be used to replicate surfaces with such precision that deviations are kept lower than 0.1 μm. This means that in metallography, for example, the structures of etched microstructure surfaces can be replicated with the utmost precision. The impression can be used to make a mold by using suitable polymers, such as Technovit®3040, to obtain a second positive, without any loss of quality.
• The optimum level of resilience for use on complicated geometric objects with undercuts
Due to its excellent resilience, Provil Novo makes it possible to take impressions of difficult areas and to measure these after the impression has been taken. These advantages are used, for example, to measure the rate of wear of cavities in tools and machine components, without having to use cost-intensive techniques. Perfect results thanks to easy application methods.
• Faultless working due to extremely simple application
The self-mixing cartouche system excludes faulty dosing. The kneadable products come with color-coded spoons and products in order to avoid confusion.
• Ready for application within a few seconds due to the easy mixing procedure
No special previous knowledge required for the application. In comparison to other methods, Provil Novo is very advantageous for use in places that are difficult to get to or for work performed overhead. Provil Novo can be removed easily from the sample object without leaving any residues.
• Cost-efficient method
Users of Provil Novo do not need to invest in special training or application devices. The competitive price of the consumables and the short time required for its application make it easy to decide on Provil Novo!
• No hazardous substances / no health or safety risks
Provil Novo can be applied anywhere without risks, particularly in areas which already pose a high potential for danger (e.g. corrosion surveys in tank farms, gas pipes etc). Transportation of Provil Novo is also risk-free, and the products have been approved for all modes of transportation.
• Does not develop any temperatures when curing
Provil Novo does not develop any temperatures during the curing process, and hence does not negatively influence the surface structure of objects – which is particularly important for a broad range of scientific applications and when taking impressions for restoration purposes.
• Many analysis and application possibilities
Provil Novo silicones do not react in any way with other substances. This means that impressions of all kinds of surfaces can be taken, irrespective of the material of which those objects are composed. These surface impressions can be analyzed by using light microscopes or SEM’s (at a low accelerating voltage of max. 5 kV). Provil Novo impressions can also be used for roughness measurements.
