Trifluoropropyl methacrylate POSS® is a liquid hybrid molecule with an inorganic silsesquioxane core and organic groups attached at the corners of the cage. Trifluoropropyl methacrylate POSS® is a molecular union of both chemistry and inorganicorganic composition.
Free radical and addition cure. The combination of reactivity and hydrophobicy provides for interfacial compatibility, and and surface modification. The crosslinking capability in combination with trifluoropropyl provides for resistance to moisture uptake and low surface energy while retaining optical transmission.
APPLICATIONS: Surface energy control, Hydrophobic wetting and moisture barrier. Additional use as a compatibilizer can be realized in certain formulations.
