  • Thermoplastic
  • It is also used as a medium for water resistance in electrical cable-jointing, roofing membranes (since it does not pollute the run-off rainwater, which is of vital importance for rainwater harvesting), geomembranes, rubber mechanical goods, plastic impact modification, thermoplastic, vulcanizates, and many other applications. (wikipedia.org)
  • chemically
  • For performance in chemically harsh environments, trifluoropropyl silicone polymer is used to impart added fuel, oil, and solvent resistance for applications such as automotive and military o-rings, membranes, seals, and gaskets. (rubbernews.com)
  • Chemically, silicone rubber is a family of thermoset elastomers that have a backbone of alternating silicon and oxygen atoms and methyl or vinyl side groups. (wikipedia.org)
  • applications
  • Silicone heat cured elastomers (HCE) have traditionally been used in the fabrication of rubber components exposed to a wide temperature range for both static and dynamic applications. (rubbernews.com)
  • Typical applications for liquid silicone rubber are products that require high precision such as seals, sealing membranes, electric connectors, multi-pin connectors, infant products where smooth surfaces are desired, such as bottle nipples, medical applications as well as kitchen goods such as baking pans, spatulas, etc. (wikipedia.org)

  • In low to medium-vacuum applications, these are sealed with elastomer o-rings. (wikipedia.org)
  • Such materials find specialized applications as elastomers. (wikipedia.org)
  • temperature
  • Such a system will cure on its own at room temperature and (unlike the platinum-based addition cure system) is not easily inhibited by contact with other chemicals, though the process may be affected by contact with some plastics or metals and may not take place at all if placed in contact with already-cured silicone compounds. (wikipedia.org)
  • Silicone is an example of a sealant - and has a proven long life and is unaffected by UV or extremes of weather or temperature. (wikipedia.org)
  • react
  • In a platinum-based silicone cure system, also called an addition system (because the key reaction-building polymer is an "Addition reaction"), two different chemical groups (a silicone hydride and a vinyl) react in the presence of platinum (which serves as the catalyst). (wikipedia.org)
  • Materials
  • Silicone rubbers maintain their mechanical properties over a wide range of temperatures and the presence of methyl-groups in silicone rubbers makes these materials extremely hydrophobic, making them suitable for electrical surface insulations. (wikipedia.org)
  • Metering units pump the two primary liquid materials, the catalyst and the base forming silicone, ensuring that the two materials maintain a constant ratio while being simultaneously released. (wikipedia.org)
  • In comparison to other elastomers, LSR is resistant to bacteria growth and will not stain or corrode other materials. (wikipedia.org)
  • Mathematical modelling of non-linear magneto- and electro-active rubber-like materials" (PDF). (wikipedia.org)

  • In surgical praxis, after having emplaced the empty breast implants to the implant pockets, the plastic surgeon then filled each device with saline solution, and, because the required insertion-incisions are short and small, the resultant incision-scars will be smaller and shorter than the surgical scars usual to the long incisions required for inserting pre-filled, silicone-gel implants.

  • Properties
  • The surface structure and properties of the elastomers were studied by XPS, contact angle, AFM and model human serum protein (HSA) adsorption. (springer.com)
  • They do not require the use of a release agent since silicones have non-stick properties. (wikipedia.org)
  • fluids
  • Biocompatibility: Under extensive testing, liquid silicone rubber has demonstrated superior compatibility with human tissue and body fluids. (wikipedia.org)
  • Silicone is popular with water-based fluids, such as in bio-pharma industry, but have limited range of chemical compatibility in other industries. (wikipedia.org)
