Thanks to their chemistry, silicones are unique materials unlike anything else in this world. They combine the advantages of silicon-based glass and carbon-based plastic. Like glass, silicones are temperature- and moisture-resistant, chemically inert and dielectric. Like plastics, silicones are strong and able to assume many forms.
Because of their unique properties, silicones can be engineered to perform a wide range of critical functions in today’s world – from adhesives to release agents, antifoams to foam stabilizers. No matter what solution you are looking for, chances are silicones have already been used.
