Fumed silica is the most common reinforcing filler used in silicone rubbers. Create your free Prospector account to view this complete product datasheet. Fumed silica can also be treated with bifunctional silanes to introduce functional groups such as vinyl, methacryl, epoxy and amino groups onto the surface to enhance silica-polymer interactions.
During the same period, polysiloxane materials were produced in the early s by a joint venture of Corning Glass and Dow Chemical. As can be seen in table 8, all compounds have comparable durometer A hardness. Fillers used in LSR compounds should provide high reinforcement and low rheological properties.
The extent of replacement controls the degree of hydrophobicity of surface treated silica. They exhibit high mechanical properties asrosil abrasion resistance.
The slightly higher reinforcement of fumed silica compounds may be attributed to The higher dispersion of fumed silica in these compounds, which is also evident arosil higher abrasion and transparency table Aerosil fumed silica for solvent free epoxy resins pdf, kb this technical bulletin describes the mechanism for thickening and thixotropizing solvent free epoxy resins and diverse hardening systems in comparison to hydrophilic and hydrophobic types of aerosil.
The removal of by-products such as hydrochloric acid or other by products resulting from in-situ treatment of DDS or HMDS is not necessary if hydrophobic fumed silica is used.
The Aerosil R S fumed silica is hydrophobic or HMDS treated whose trimethylsilyl groups are chemically reacted on the surface of fumed silica. The goal of development of SP fumed silica is to enhance transparency or clarity without increasing surface area.
Tb 63 aerosil fumed silica and sipernat in sealants en. Fumed silica is used to provide both high mechanical properties and transparency.
Degussa AG, 3. Transparency in silicone rubbers is directly correlated to the surface area of fumed silica.
Fumed silica in LSR Liquid silicone rubbers LSR are made of a two-component, platinum addition cure system that can be afrosil molded and cured with very fast cycle times, at elevated temperatures. As was mentioned earlier, the used silica was aerosil r which has been modified with hexamethyldisilazane. With the increasing volume percentage of rthe powder becomes more and more free flowing. Recommended for Use In. For example, as effective thixotropic additives, they control the viscosity and stability of uncured silicone sealing compounds.
With regard to water resistance, volume swell in water was measured, as seen in figure The N and Aerosil VS compounds exhibit comparable and highest reinforcement. In figure arrosil, hydrophilic Aerosil sealant compound exhibits the highest yield point compared to other grades of hydrophobic silica at given storage times. Selfcleaning behavior in polyurethanesilica coatings via. It is used in paints and coatings, adhesives and sealants, and silicone rubber.
The investigation of HNBR containing different fillers at 60 phr loading was studied by Friehmelt ref. The surface of hydrophobic fumed silica figure 2 on the right shows low hydrogen bonding interaction because hydroxyl groups on the hydrophilic fumed silica surface are replaced by dimethylsilyl groups of silane D4 or DDS.
Pdf aerosil and aeroxide for aerosik silicone rubber lsr. However, yield point should not be too high to cause sealant to flow when it is applied on to surfaces. The breakdown of the filler-filler network under dynamic deformation causes hysteresis loss measured by tan delta.
Transforming an intrinsically hydrophilic polymer to a robust.
Aerosil and sipernat for free flowing and noncaking sugars and sugar alcohols pdf, kb to ensure a convenient as well a efficient handling of sugars without time and resource consuming measures to break agglomerates again, it is important to reduce caking and avoid formation of lumps reliably. Because the silica-silica network of the hydrophobic fumed silica is reduced, it takes less energy to break down the net Work under deformation, resulting in low tan delta compared to hydrophilic fumed silica and unmodified precipitated silica.
It can be seen that AerosiL SP exhibits higher transparency than Aerosil at similar surface area. Silicone oil acts as a hydrophobizing agent to the fumed silica, resulting in better polymer-filler interaction.
In silicone rubbers, fumed silica improves rheological control, reinforcement, transparency and high electrical insulation. Their physico-chemical data are also aeerosil. Through a proprietary process, the structure of fumed silica aggregates and agglomerates is altered without affecting the average particle size.
Fumed silica provides significant reinforcement in rubber compounds due to its unique properties such as high purity, low moisture content, small particle size large surface area and excellent dispersion.
