Application of Silicone Rubber Products in Various Industries

Silicone is an indispensable key component in many terminal application fields. Therefore, silicone may be directly supplied to the manufacturers of the final silicone rubber products, but more commonly, silicone goes through several stages of the industrial chain. At each level of the company, the added value of materials can be progressively increased through basic material conversion or modification, ultimately resulting in a final saleable finished product. Silicone drives economic growth in two ways, creating employment opportunities in the silicone rubber product industry and promoting the development of industries that rely on silicone components.

Application of silicone rubber products in construction

Silicone products are used in building sealants, adhesives, and protective coatings. These silicone products help protect, strengthen, and preserve buildings while providing aesthetic and innovative features. Silicone is widely used in the construction industry because it can bond with a variety of materials, such as concrete, glass, granite, marble, aluminum, steel, and plastic. Silicon rubber is durable and can resist corrosion from harsh weather, moisture, or sunlight. In addition, it can improve building energy efficiency. Silicone used as a sealing adhesive can resist moisture and resist hot and cold air passing through joints and gaps. Silicone also helps with insulation. It provides flexibility and reduces the damage of medium to low-intensity earthquakes to buildings.

Silicone rubber can be used in building materials to enhance sustainability and energy efficiency. In the same application, silicone sealants have a lifespan up to three times longer than organic material sealants. Using silicone resin latex paint on exposed building surfaces can reduce thermal losses by up to 40%. Compared with traditional building materials, silicone additives or coatings can reduce water absorption by up to 80%, helping to reduce material degradation and extend the lifespan of treated materials.

Application of silicone rubber products in kitchenware

Silicone household products are widely used in daily life. Due to its flexibility, heat resistance, and resistance to bacteria, silicone is particularly suitable for kitchen utensils. The types of silicone rubber tableware are extremely rich, ranging from baking molds, heat-resistant gloves to compressible food containers and duckbill cups. In the consumer goods industry, silicone can significantly reduce energy consumption. Silicon is used as a defoaming agent in detergents and fabric softeners to reduce water usage and energy consumption in washing machines.

Application of silicone rubber products in electronics

Although silicone is used in many different electronic products, it is essential in the telecommunications and information technology fields that hold a large market share. Silicon can also be found in semiconductors and LEDs. In the consumer electronics and commercial fields, silicon sealants, adhesives, and coatings can be used to produce circuits, connectors, capacitors, coils, transistors, and electronic tubes in electronic equipment. Silicone can protect different electronic components from heat, shock, and pollution. As electronic devices become smaller, more portable, and increasingly complex, silicone rubber products are essential to ensuring long-term stability and performance of these devices. Overall, silicone helps improve the energy efficiency, connectivity, mobility, and power of electronic products.

Application of silicone rubber products in medical care

Silicone is used in various medical devices, specialized medical instruments, and pharmaceuticals. Silicone is hydrophobic, low allergenic, and does not react with most chemicals. Due to its chemical stability, durability, and elasticity, silicone is particularly suitable for long-term applications that need to be implanted in the human body. In addition, due to medical silicone rubber's chemical stability, thermal stability, low surface tension, and ease of disinfection, silicone has excellent biocompatibility and biostability.

Application of silicone rubber products in transportation

Mainly used in the automotive, shipbuilding, and aviation fields. Due to its strength, adhesion, and durability, silicon rubber, resin elastomers, sealants, lubricants, and plastic additives have extensive use in the automotive, aviation, and shipbuilding fields. The use of silicon makes transportation more efficient, safer, and more reliable. Silicon rubber, elastomers, sealants, lubricants, and plastic additives are widely used in automotive parts. Silicon provides airtight sealing and fabric strength in airbags, helping to inflate airbags at the right time and pressure, contributing to increased safety and reduced traffic fatalities. The adhesive is heat-resistant, salt-resistant, rain-resistant, and can be used to protect and isolate engine components, increasing vehicle safety within the service life. In new energy vehicles, silicone is used to encapsulate the entire battery pack, providing stability, shock resistance, heat dissipation, waterproofing, and dustproofing.
