Unformatted text preview: containing aromatic substituent (e.g., dicumyl peroxide), gave variable results, probably because of excessive acid-catalyzed decomposition in the fluoroelastomer matrix. Of the radical traps tested, the most effective crosslinker is TAIC, as judged by cure state and compression set of vulcanizates. Other effective crosslinkers contain unhindered allyl or vinyl groups attached to N, O, or Si; all are electron-rich groups. Electron-poor traps are effective in hydrocarbon elastomers, such as m-phenylene-bis-maleimide, are ineffective...
