Dynamic Mechanical Properties of Silicone Pressure-Sensitive Adhesives

  • B. C. Copley
Part of the Polymer Science and Technology book series (POLS, volume 29)


The chemistry of silicone resins and siloxane gums used to prepare silicone pressure sensitive adhesives is briefly reviewed. The thermal, dynamic mechanical and X-ray scattering properties of the silicone adhesives is presented. A specific morphological model for the silicone pressure sensitive adhesives is proposed based on the characterization data. The results for adhesives prepared from polydimethyl siloxane gums is compared to adhesive prepared from polydimethyl-co-diphenyl siloxane gums.
