Compared with general rubber products, silicone products have many advantages. As a professional silicone manufacturer, we will explain the unique advantages of silica gel.
Six advantages of silica gel material
1.silicone is a highly versatile material that can be used to create a wide range of products. It can be molded into different shapes and sizes, and can be colored in many different shades.
2.Excellent high and low temperature resistance Operating temperature range -100~350°C
3.Excellent resistance to ozone aging, oxygen aging, light aging and weathering resistance. The silicone rubber vulcanizate has no change in performance in the free state for several years.
4.Excellent electrical insulation properties The electrical insulation properties of silicone rubber change little when the moisture, frequency changes or temperature rises.
5.Special surface properties and physiologically inert silicone rubber have lower surface energy than most organic materials. It has low hygroscopicity. Its long-term immersion in water has a water absorption rate of only about 1%, physical and mechanical properties are not reduced, and mildew resistance is good.
6.Highly permeable silicone rubber has superior gas permeability compared with other polymer materials; the permeability to N2, O2 and air is 30-40 times higher than NR at room temperature; it also has the performance of gas permeation. The permeability to O2 is about double that of N2, and the CO2 transmittance is about 5 times that of O2.
Because of the many advantages of silicone materials, silicone products are very popular in the market, widely used in automotive electronic parts, aerospace sealing products, bonding seams in the construction industry, household appliance sealing rings, medical artificial organs, catheters, etc. field.
