What is silicone material?

What are the advantages and disadvantages of silicone materials?

Some people say it is very good, a lot of fields can be applied, some people say it has what what disadvantages.

But a lot of friends may not know this material very well.

What is silicone material:

Silicone, or polysiloxane as it is known scientifically, is an amazing material.

It provides a unique combination of chemical and mechanical properties that organic elastomers cannot match.

They are often used in seals, adhesives and molded flexible parts.

Advantages of silicone material characteristics

1. Extreme temperature resistance

High and low temperature applications,

Continuous +230°C (intermittently 300°C),

Under 60 ℃.

2. Excellent environmental resistance

Ozone,

UV,

General weathering (rain, snow, sleet, frost);

3. Low compression set

Good compression resistance at high temperature,

Perfect for sealing;

4. Low-level flammable components

When exposed to flame, the elastomer is reduced to nonconductive silica ash.

5. High physiological inertia

Tasteless,

Odourless,

Non-toxic;

Disadvantages of silicone material characteristics

1. Poor wear resistance

If you are looking for a good wear resistance silicone material, then small series suggest that silicone is not suitable for you.

For example, car tires or soles made of silicone have a short life span

2. Bad oil/petroleum resistance

Silicone tends to expand if exposed to oil for a period of time.

In this case, we recommend the use of fluorosiloxane because of its oil/oil resistance

What is silicone material?

The advantages and disadvantages of silicone material characteristics have been briefly summarized and I hope it can be helpful to the boss.

In a word, choosing the right elastomer or rubber is very suitable for the application and is what elastomers need to do.

Silicone is a fantastic material in the presence of high temperatures and ambient pressures, but as explained, it is likely to fail if oil/oil is exposed.

Therefore, selection is the key to ensure a long life.
