Glycidyl iso-octyl POSS® is a clear viscous liquid hybrid molecule with an inorganic silsesquioxane core and organic groups attached at the corners of the cage. Glycidyl iso-octyl POSS® is a molecular union of both chemistry and inorganic organic composition.
Cationic and addition cure. The combination of reactivity and hydrophobicy provides for interfacial compatibility, and and surface modification. The crosslinking capability in combination with i-butyl provides for resistance to moisture uptake and low surface energy while retaining optical transmission.
The i-octyl groups are more reinforcing than the i-butyl groups present on the HC0409 system.
APPLICATIONS: Surface energy control, Hydrophobic wetting and moisture barrier. Additional use as a compatibilizer can be realized in certain formulations.
