About Vinyl Functional Silicone Fluids
Vinyl functional silicone fluids can be combined with silicon hydride containing fluids or resins to make silicone rubber. Silicone rubber cures by the following reaction which is catalyzed by transition metals:
This reaction, commonly known as a hydrosilation reaction, is advantageous because it produces no volatile byproducts and it proceeds at relatively low temperatures.
Vinyl End-Blocked Silicone Fluids
Vinyl End-Blocked Silicone Fluids provides a reactive site for cross-linking by ultraviolet or heat accelerated free radical cross-linking reactions. This type of functional silicone is used in manufacturing hydrosilation cured silicone rubber products.
