Silicone and Sealants Chemistry

Industry Overview:
  The move towards more environmentally-friendly consumer products has thrust silicone-based products into the spotlight in recent years. Although they are not biodegradable, they don’t have any harmful effects on people, animals, or the environment. Silicones behave something like a rubber-plastic compound. They are strong insulators and sealants, keeping out extreme temperatures, water, and even ultraviolet light without weathering.

Many of us are first exposed to silicone when we are still infants: commercial baby bottles often utilize silicone to create a hard but flexible (and leak-proof) top. Silicones are used as sealants in a wide variety of uses, from construction and plumbing to automobile and airplane parts to household aquariums. Silicones are also popular in many personal care products, for their ability to soften and moisturize – they are found in conditioners, shaving creams, cosmetics, and fabric softeners.
Common Applications:
 
  • Polymerization, synthesis, combustion, etc.
  • Silicone group – silanones, etc.
  • Modified silicone
  • Silicones – one-part, two-part, etc.
  • Compounding
  • Raw materials
  • Fillers, adhesion promoters, catalysts, etc.
  • Formulation process
  • Production – batch, continuous
  • Testing
  • Curing systems
