Thermoset PI vs. Silicone Plastic
Both thermoset PI and silicone plastic are thermoset plastics. There are 12 material properties with values for both materials. Properties with values for just one material (16, in this case) are not shown.
For each property being compared, the top bar is thermoset PI and the bottom bar is silicone plastic.
