Abstract:

Under the High Temperature Polymer Program authorized by reference a the Naval Applied Science Laboratory is investigating the potential suitability of new polymeric materials developed by other research laboratories under government sponsorship for Naval use at elevated temperatures. In continuation of this work, there are reported herein the results of investigations of the thermal resistance and hydrolytic stability of two high molecular weight 4-carboranylbutyl methylsiloxane-dimethylsiloxane copolymers designated by Reaction Motors as carborane silicone elastomer gum, a soft, brown, slightly tacky rubbery material having main-chains. jg p.5
