Silcolease® POLY 356 polymer is a vinyl functional silicone fluid which, when
properly catalyzed and cured, gives a semi-flexible crosslinked coating with premium
release properties. As part of the Optima system, Silcolease® POLY 356 is designed
for formulating flexibility to allow reduction in Pt catalyst and more cost effective
process conditions. The simplest Silcolease® POLY 356 release coating system
comprises the vinyl silicone polymer, a methyl hydrogen siloxane crosslinker and a
platinum catalyst. The resulting addition reaction is very rapid, and, therefore, an
inhibitor is included to provide bath stability at ambient conditions while allowing rapid
cures at elevated temperatures.
