Chemical properties of 1,3-bis(3-methacryloxypropyl)-1,1,3,3-tetramethyldisiloxane-methyl methacrylate copolymer
This study evaluated the chemical properties such as water sorption, water solubility and solvent resistance of a new resin material consisting of 1,3-bis(3-methacryloxypropyl)-1,1,3,3-tetramethyldisiloxane (BMPMS) and methyl methacrylate (MMA). Water sorption was evaluated by immersing the specimens in water at 37±1°C for 1 week, water solubility was evaluated by keeping the specimens in a desiccator under dry conditions at 37±1°C until the weight became constant, and solvent resistance was evaluated by immersing the specimens in acetone for 1 week and measuring the dissolved weight of acetone volatilized from those liquids. The water sorption and solvent resistance of the new resin were improved with increasing amount of BMPMS, whereas the water solubility remained the same value and did not depend on the amount of BMPMS.
