EAST BRUNSWICK, N.J. — Bluestar Silicones will showcase its elastomeric and foam control silicone solutions for the oil and gas market at the Offshore Technology Conference (Booth #11906), May 5-8, in Houston.

Bluestar Silicones will introduce its Bluesil™ RT Foam 3242, an innovative open cell silicone foam ideal for fire resistant and high temperature insulation applications.  The company also is introducing its Bluesil™ ESA 7250, a two-component RTV for potting of electronics where high strength, elastic and optical clarity are needed.

For flexible sealing and bonding applications subject to thermal strain, Bluestar Silicones offers Bluesil™ CAF 530, a new one-component silicone elastomer for primer-less adhesion for assembly and protection of critical components.

Bluestar Silicones also is featuring its Silcolapse® 600 Series water soluble additives, which effectively control foam at very low concentrations.

"We are excited to showcase our new silicone solutions for industrial design, assembly and maintenance at the largest industry conference," said Reeshemah Chatham, market manager for Bonding Sealing in North America.

"Bluestar Silicones is investing in our business and our manufacturing footprint, enabling us to expand into new markets and develop new customer-driven silicone products to meet the evolving needs of the oil and gas market," continued Ms. Chatham. "It is a great time to partner with us as your preferred silicone solutions provider."

In June 2012, Bluestar Silicones opened a new 226,000-sq-ft manufacturing facility located in York, S.C.  This facility is home to all manufacturing and R&D in North America for Bluestar Silicones.

The company produces its extensive range of silicone technologies at the York facility, including liquid silicone rubber (LSR), high consistency rubber (HCR), room-temperature vulcanized silicones (RTV), gels, greases and compounds, emulsions, UV/EB and thermal cure release coatings, foam control additives, and functionalized fluids and resins marketed under its Bluesil™, Silbione®, Silcolease®, Silcolapse® and Lyndcoat® trade names.  For more information, call (866) 474-6342.
