Silicone Liquid Rubber Time-Temperature-Transformation Diagram

An informative presentation of the silicone liquid rubber curing incorporating the degree of cure is the Time-Temperature-Transformation (TTT) diagram, developed by Enns and Gillham. It can be used to relate the material properties of thermosets, such as Silicone Liquid Rubber (LSR), as a function of time and processing temperature. The diagram visually presents various lines representing constant degrees of cure. The curve labeled c=,c-g. represents the gel point and c=1 represents the fully cured resin.
