Importance of Silicone [948]

Silicone is one of the ingredients in most of the rubber products.  Silicone is represented by the alphabet ‘Q’ because of its four valence electrons. Chemical bondings or structures and organic compounds combined together create different silicone products. Variations in this combination produce various different products. Silicone monomers are manufactured using Muller-Rockhow process. Depending upon the presence of organic group in the manufacturing the silicone polymers are divided into four major groups.  

Two types of Silicone rubber are available in the market and they are classified as solid silicone rubber and liquid silicone rubber. Unlinked pure polymers are modified into various products by adding the cross linkers, and fillers. Again, fillers are divided into two different groups and they are reinforcing fillers and non reinforcing fillers.  

Depending upon the presence of siloxane polymer the properties of the silicone rubber will be established. Therefore, the quality of silicone rubber is decided by its presence of fillers or polymers.  The product can be stabilized using suitable stabilizers so that it can be made to have optimum properties that can resist heat and friction. Originally silicone rubbers are colorless, transparent material. With suitable changes silicone rubber can be made from transparent to translucent and opaque. It can be colored easily by using suitable pigments. The customzied color silicone rubbers can be manufactured depending upon clients request and demand. Depending upon the type of materials requested by the clients, it is cured using either peroxide or platinum catalyzed 

Due to its multiple advantages this product is used to produce various safety objects like clothing used by the rescue personnels in fire extinguishing operations. Since the silicone rubber does not contain any organic plasticizer and its properties like chemical inertness, high transparency has made this material highly beneficial to manufacture medical equipments and it has been considered as one of the best product robust enough to produce most rubber products where chemical inertness and transparency is necessary. The major use of silicone rubber is found in the manufacturing of the gaskets that include its resistance to heat, odorless property, and above all it is tasteless extremely suitable for gaskets.

The turbo charger hose that required high heat resistance and the stress involved in the process is extraordinary in silicone rubbers. The product rose to its popularity due to its property to machine.  It can sustain high stress and machining properties. Due to many of its properties, the material is used as a basic raw material for many well known products where the versatile nature of Silicone Rubber.  One can expect outstanding and distinct products, having a very good property profile, high purity, and it is possible to manufacture ready to use compounds.  

There are many advantages in the manufacturing of solid silicone rubber and liquid silicone rubber.  Flexibility in the manufacturing process made it easy to produce various other process.  Now the world cannot be able to imagined without the silicone rubber products.
