Soft Tissue Compliant Silicones For Medical Devices

ExSil silicone nanocomposites are the first in a series of ultrahigh elongation materials that achieve their unique mechanical properties via a radically different mechanism than traditional silicones. Traditional silicones rely on formation of chemically crosslinked chain networks for their elastomeric properties. ExSil nanocomposites, on the other hand, rely on mechanically interlocked polymer chains.
