Silicone / Nylon 12 Psuedo-Interpenetrating Networks SI is a subcategory of Silicone. The additative is added during the manufacturing process. Its flexural modulus ranges from 200 to 216 MPa. Its tensile strength ranges from 5200 to 7400 MPa at break. Its flexural strength ranges from 8000 to 8300 MPa. Its Izod Impact strength ranges from 0.6 to 0.7 J/cm. Its specific gravity ranges from 1.01 to 1.02. Its molding pressure ranges from 7 to 12 MPa.
Silicone, also known as SI, is a thermoset polycondensate. Common trade names include Baysilon, Blu-Sil, Commex, Fiberite, Lamitex, Siltemp, and Textolite. copolymer It maintains its dimensional stability and good electrical and dielectrical properties over a wide range of frequency and temperature. Other useful properties include good flame resistance, low water absorption, moderate thermal shock resistance, and average polymeric mechanical properties. On the other hand, it is high-cost with limited shelf-life and a long curing time. It is often used in computer chips, IC’s, cooking ware, and food containers.
Additional Information
Other common Silicone (SI) include Flexible Casting Resins (including RTV) SI, Liquid Silicone Rubber Injection Molding SI, Mineral And/or Glass Filled Molding and Encapsulating Compounds SI, and Silicone / Nylon 66 Psuedo-Interpenetrating Networks SI.
