Effect of accelerated aging on the cross-link density of medical grade silicones.


Four specimens of Nagor silicone of different hardness (soft, medium and hard) were swollen, until they reached equilibrium (i.e. constant mass) in five liquids at 25°C, before and after accelerated aging. For the specimens swollen before accelerated aging, the greatest swelling was obtained in methyl cyclohexane, while for the specimens swollen after… (More)
