RTV106, RTV116 and RTV159 all have iron-oxide fillers; this not only gives them their characteristic red appearance but also allows for the very high temperature capabilities these 3 grades posses. All grades in the family come with high dielectric strength along with good tear and tensile strength – the RTV157 & RTV159 however do take these characteristics to the next level – offering up to 72.1 kg/cm2 tensile strength and 17kg/cm tear strength, not to mention up to 825% elongation!
