Liquid CO2 Extraction of Free Silicones

May 2, 2023

A common problem related to the use of silicone elastomers is outgassing of unreacted volatiles. The compounds that outgas can coat surfaces, contaminate processes, or leach into adjacent fluid streams. An accepted method to minimize these escaping volatiles is to apply an extended curing process to the elastomer. Once the volatiles have been removed from […]
