FTi.r. has shown that the dibutyltin dilaurate catalyst employed in silane crosslinking of polyolefins exists in true equilibrium. The position of this equilibrium is highly dependant upon the polarity of the surrounding medium, which in turn may have a profound effect on the rate of crosslinking in such systems.
