What is silicone?


Silicone is a synthetic polymer with a structure mainly composed of silicon atoms and oxygen atoms. Since the silicon-oxygen structure constituting the main chain has a strong chemical bond, the molecules of the silicone high polymer are much more stable to heat and oxygen than the general organic polymer. Although the mechanical properties of silicone at room temperature are not much different from those of other materials, its physical and mechanical properties at high temperature and low temperature are excellent. The temperature is repeated at -60 to +250 °C and its performance is not affected. Thus, silicone polymers can be used for a long period of time in this temperature range. Some silicone polymers are more suitable for use down to -100 °C. Because of the dipole action in the silicone molecule, it can effectively buffer and Silicone Products Suppliersattenuate the influence of the external electric field, thereby protecting the hydroxyl group attached to the silicon atom, making it less susceptible to physical factors or chemical agents. In addition to being basically resistant to corrosion, radiation, high and low temperature, the products made of polyorganosiloxane also have low hygroscopicity, high insulation resistance, low dielectric constant, low stress, vibration reduction and environmental protection. Low toxicity, flameChina Fiberglass Cloth Suppliers retardant, and reworkability. Therefore, silicones are made into a variety of adhesive sealants, potting compounds, insulating coatings and silicone greases for use in a variety of electronic devices.
