Effect of Rosin Ester on Water-Resistant Adhesion Oximized RTV-1 Silicone Rubber Sealant
It is necessary to improve the adhesion of the cured rubber to a substrate as it is used extensively. It is well known that an improvement in adhesion can be realized by incorporating in the composition a sliane or siloxane. Although the composition provides good adhesion to many kinds of substrates, it has been found that the adhesive bond degrades rapidly under wet conditions. To be solved it, rosin eater was incorprated in the silcone ruber in the paper. Increasing the content of rosin ester could induce a relative high adhesion in hot water. Moreover, when the content of modified rosin pentaerythritol ester was above 4.5 phr, the immersion days in hot water before adhesive failure occured were three times than that of non-additive rosin esters.
