The article discusses the use of room-temperature vulcanizing silicones (RTVs). According to the article, this technology solves many challenges for assemblers of equipment destined for rugged use. Among these is their ability to resist moisture and chemicals and cushion electronic assemblies, fasteners, switches and other parts against vibration and shock.
