Properties of Silicone Rubber Components
High Thermal Stability
Silicone has a low thermal conductivity, which means that it transfers heat at a low rate compared to other materials.
Silicone is highly durable and retains its shape and flexibility in extreme conditions, making it a particularly reliable material for use in critical applications.
Silicone rubber will not degrade with repeated or prolonged exposure to UV or other types of radiation.
Silicone rubber has excellent flexibility, it can be modified easily and responds well to a variety of circumstances.
Silicone Components: What is it and What's the Use of it
Everything from gaskets in automotive engines, to children’s toys, contact lenses, lubricants and a wide range of medical implants and mechanical and electrical parts are made out of silicone parts.
Silicone components is a good fit for electrical insulation applications because of their high dielectric strength. In addition to their resistance to high temperature, UV, and ozone, they are hydrophobic, so they do not promote surface insulation failures.
Silicone gaskets are used in automotive engines, transmissions, and other applications.
Silicone components are used in skin medications to aid absorption and functionality. And, silicone materials are very easy to sterilize, helping to reduce the risk of bacterial infections.
Silicone component is pliable, and bacteria and heat-resistant make it an ideal material for use in the kitchen. Silicone kitchen tool varieties are endless, with applications ranging from baking molds and oven mitts to collapsible food containers and sippy cups.
Silicone Components Manufacturing Process
The most suitable method of silicone rubber moulding will depend on the volumes required, the complexity of the part, and the finish required.
Compression molding is a method of molding in which the molding material, generally preheated, is first placed in an open, heated mold cavity.
Injection moulding (U.S. spelling: injection molding) is a manufacturing process for producing parts by injecting molten material into a mould, or mold.
Extrusion is a process where a material undergoes plastic deformation by the application of a force causing that material to flow through an orifice or die.
