Professor Tim Osswald, Director of the Technical Advisory Board of SIMTEC Silicone Parts, presented breakthrough research on the viscoelastic behavior of Liquid Silicone Rubber (LSR) at Silicone Elastomers US, the first Silicone Elastomers’ event held in North America.
The presentation surrounded the fundamental behavior of LSR, addressing the time-temperature dependence of storage and loss moduli, as well as their development during cure. The whole range between viscous and perfectly elastic behavior and their interaction was demonstrated with measurements and simple models.
