ABSTRACT
This study presents research concerning the development of an organosilicon polymer medium (polymethylhydroborosiloxane), that allows for the optimal selection of viscosity in the medium, for use as an admixture abrasive paste for abrasive flow machining. Based on the results of actual dynamic viscosity medium measurements, the influence of changes in temperature (25 °C, 50 °C and 75 °C) and in the concentration of the crosslinking solution (anhydrite boric acid – 2 wt.%, 4 wt.% and 6 wt.%) were studied. A number of crosslinking medium experiments were carried out, in which the characteristics of storage modulus G' and loss modulus G" of the medium containing different concentrations of crosslinking solutions at different temperature were determined. Due to the results obtained, it was possible to select the parameters of the crosslinking solution optimally both in terms of the temperature (50 °C) as well as its concentration (4 wt.%).
