Iso-octyl methacrylate POSS® is a liquid hybrid molecule with an inorganic silsesquioxane core and organic groups attached at the corners of the cage. Iso-octyl methacrylate POSS® is a molecular union of both chemistry and inorganic organic 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 i-octyl 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.
