Silicone rubber compounds are high temperature rubber-like materials consisting of silicone gum, a filler, and a curing catalyst. The filler is added to the rubber to give good molding properties and also good tensile strength and elongation. The data in this thesis shows that the compounds which had the best heat aging properties consisted of 100 parts of silicone rubber and 0.5 parts of' benzoyl peroxide as the curing catalyst, with titanium dioxide as the filler.
