One of three types of room temperature vulcanization (RTV) silicones. An oxime-type silicone uses a neutral chemical, such as an oxime or alcohol, to initiate the curing mechanism in combination with water (from the atmosphere). The oxime silicone cures much slower than an acid-based (acetoxy) silicone, but only releases a methyl ethyl ketoxime as a by-product of the curing process (instead of acetic acid). Once cured, the oxime silicone is non-corrosive and has excellent oil and temperature resistant properties. I can adhere to concrete and is non-corrosive for most metals.
