Dichlorodifluoromethane

Poly Isobutyl Methacrylate

Dibutyl phthalateC16H22O4

This polymer acts as a plasticizer to boost the polymer’s strength and cohesiveness while ensuring it is still sticky to the touch.

C8H14O2

Ingredients

This is the surfactant or the surface acting agent of the mixture. This is the ingredient that makes the resin foam and adjusts the stickiness of the string.

Sorbitan Trioleate

C60H114O8

This is the main ingredient. It is a propellant and simply pushes the mixture of ingredients out of the aerosol can. It also helps the ingredients to activate and foam as well as form a skin and adhere.

CCl2F2

HexabromobenzeneC6Br6This polymer is used as an agent to slow down flammability; acts as a flame retardant.

Dimethylsiloxane

This polymer make the finished streamers easier to peel away from most targets or areas where silly string was sprayed. C2H7OSi

This organic compound gives the Silly String the shape it takes; important to the makeup of Silly String but is only 10 to 15 percent of the mixture. Resins are what causes the silly string to take on its long and slender, string-like shape.

polyisobutyl methacrylate, hexabromobenzene, pigment, dibutyl phthalate, dimethyl siloxane, dichloromethane, sorbitan trioleate and CFC-12

AlizarinC14H8O4This polymer, called a pigment, gives silly string a red color; The pigment used can be different and varies due to the different colors silly string can be
