SO1455 – TriSilanolIsooctyl POSS® is a hybrid molecule with an inorganic silsesquioxane at the core, organic isooctyl groups attached at the corners of the cage and three active silanol functionalities. SO1455 can be used for surface modification of fillers or other materials. It is also effective as an additive to thermoplastics and thermoset polymers for improving moisture resistance and processability. SO1455 has also shown effectiveness toward skin adhesion, wound closure and hemostasis.
