You may be familiar with Peroxide Cure Silicones, the conventional method to cure silicone, which contains a catalyst bi-product that has a smell and contains industrial chemicals. The mechanism of a peroxide cure is a free radical cure which results in a number of different by-products. A post cure is necessary to drive them off. While Peroxide Cure Silicones are great solutions for industrial and environmental applications, health care products often require an ultra-clean material.
