Silicone Elastomer Modifiers
Silicone elastomers are used in a variety of applications such as automotive, aerospace, dental, electronics, and medical. SiVance offers modifiers that enable formulators of these systems to tune properties to meet their specific needs.
In platinum addition cure silicone elastomers, SiVance’s hydride crosslinkers and chain extenders, vinyl resins, and vinyl polymer/vinyl resin blends are used to increase hardness and tear strength.
SiVance’s silanol resins are used to increase tensile and tear strength in silanol condensation elastomers.
SiVance enables the production of vinyl end-capped polymers with vinyl chainstoppers and makes silica fillers more hydrophobic with silazanes.

Hydride Chain Extenders
Hyrdride Chain Extenders (also called Coupling Hydrides) are used to increase tear strength and elongation of Platinum Addition Cure Silicone Elastomers.
Vinyl Resins are used to increase durometer (hardness) and tear strength of Platinum Addition Cure Silicone Elastomers.
Vinyl Polymer / Vinyl Resin Blends
Neat Vinyl Polymer / Vinyl Resin Blends are used to increase durometer (hardness) and tear strength of Platinum Addition Cure Silicone Elastomers.
||60/40 blend of 10,000 cps vinyl polymer with MQV-6
||75/25 blend of 5,000 cps vinyl polymer with MQV-6
Silanol Resins are used in 2 Component RTV or any other Silanol Condensation to increase tensile and tear strength.
Vinyl Chainstoppers are used for making vinyl end-capped polymers.
Silazanes are used to treat silica fillers to make them more hydrophobic.
