Properties and storage of 1,3,5,7-Tetramethylcyclotetrasiloxane:
1. Features and uses:
A reactive siloxane containing silicon-hydrogen bonds that can undergo addition reactions with unsaturated olefins. It can be used to prepare various polymethyl hydrogen siloxanes with specific hydrogen content and the required number of chain members and functional group modified polysiloxanes; it can be used for the special crosslinking of synthetic room temperature vulcanized silicone rubber and addition type liquid silicone rubber agent; synthetic side chain polysiloxane liquid crystal polymer and various functional side chain modified silicone oils. High purity can also be used in the electronics industry as a precursor for plasma vapor deposition to form silicon dioxide and silicon carbide insulating films.
2. Packaging and storage:
It is a volatile, flammable, and explosive dangerous chemical. It is easy to react with moisture in the air or be damaged by acid and alkali to form a polymer to release hydrogen. Therefore, it must be stored in airtight storage, protected from sunlight, and kept away from high temperatures and open flames. It is mildly irritating to the skin and eyes, so use it with precautions.
