Structural Adhesives Containing Submicron Silicone Particles. Now, novel modifiers are available. They are based on silicone-elastomer particles and silicone-elastomer/organic polymer hybrid (core-shell) particles, with diameters from about 100 to 1,000 nanometers. The hybrid particles consist of a crosslinked silicone rubber core that is surface-modified or grafted with a thermoplastic polyalkyl(meth)acrylic shell, which can optionally be functionalized to improve particle-matrix interaction.
