Silicone (DMC) Production Cost Report

Silicone (DMC) or Dimethylcyclosiloxane, with the molecular formula [(CH3)2SiO]n (where n = 3, 4, 5, 6, 7), is a key raw material used in making silicone rubber and oil. These products are available in varying viscosity series, including high viscosity, medium viscosity, and low viscosity series. Dimethylcyclosiloxane is a colorless and transparent oily liquid, not soluble in water but dissolves in organic solvents like benzene. It is flammable with a flash point of 55 degrees Celsius and has a density range between 0.95-0.97 g/cm3.

The DMC molecular structure primarily includes hexamethyl cyclotrisiloxane (D3), decamethylcyclopentasiloxane (D5), octamethylcyclotetrasiloxane (D4), and dodecamethyl cyclohexasiloxane (D6).

DMC is employed in the synthesis of organic silicon polymer via acid or alkali catalysis, leading to the production of silicone oil and silicone rubber. These products are essential in various industrial applications such as lubricating brake components, car polish emulsions, adhesives, and coatings for construction applications.

Silicone rubber and silicone oil produced using DMC can be processed further to make several modified silicone rubber and silicone oil that have great resistance against low and high-temperature ranges, aging, as well as insulation properties. It is mainly used in ring-opening polymerization, creating silicone rubbers, oils, and resins of various polymerization degrees.

The rising demand for silicone (DMC) as a vital ingredient in the production of silicon rubber and silicon oil that have great resistance and insulation properties, which are used in automotive and construction applications, thus, propels its market growth among automotive, construction, rubber, and oil & lubricant industries. It is also utilized as silicone rubber packaging and certain cosmetics, which increases its demand for packaging industries.

Moreover, the availability of silicone (DMC), market prices, distribution (including trading and shipping), logistics, etc., are some of the elements that influence industrial silicone (DMC) procurement. The global procurement of this commodity is greatly influenced by its necessity as a key component for the automotive, construction, packaging, rubber, and oil & lubricant industries.

Environmental and safety considerations are also crucial for handling and storing silicone (DMC), given its flammability and chemical stability. Regulatory standards and best practices ensure that it is used safely, minimizing environmental impact and protecting worker health.
