<p>Polysiloxane-thermoplastic interpenetrating polymer networks (IPNs) are a unique class of polymer-polymer composites that significantly extend the process and mechanical property range of silicone elastomers and allow modification of the behavior of thermoplastics. The materials are characterized by reactive processing consistent with traditional thermoplastic technology and the development of physical properties consistent with semi-IPNs generated from polysiloxanes cross-linked in a variety of thermoplastic matrices, including polyurethanes, polyamides, and polyolefins. The semi-IPNs are prepared by melt-mixing hydride- and vinyl-functionalized polysiloxane...
