Abstract

Reliability and durability are strict requirements for silicone elastomers employed in high temperature applications, if long time device performance is desired Improving the thermal stability of silicone elastomers is a major challenge, addressed by both the scientific and the industrial community Nevertheless, traditional methods such as adding heat resistant fillers 1 or chemical modifications 2 still suffer from considerable shortcomings Here, it is demonstrated that the thermal degradation behaviour of silicone elastomers is affected strongly by network reactant stoichiometry 3 Comparative thermal degradation studies were performed on silicone elastomers synthetized with different stoichiometric ratios and thereby different fractions of elastic, dangling, and sol structures (Fig 1).
