Cure system - Peroxide-Cured vs. Platinum cured
Standard silicone compounds are usually peroxide-cured. Platinum-cured compounds offer better flexible properties and very low volatile matter. Platinum-cured silicones usually are applied in medical system or other required low volatile matter, but they need to be produced in clean room and higher cost of platinum catalyzer so they are more expensive than peroxide-cured ones.
