Silicones Production Cost Analysis 2021

A silicone or polysiloxane is basically any of the several polymers that involve any synthetic compound containing repeating units of siloxane, which is a chain of alternating silicon atoms as well as oxygen atoms, joined with carbon, hydrogen, or sometimes with other elements. Silicone is commonly heat-resistant and is either liquid and rubber-like. It is widely utilised in sealants, adhesives, lubricants, medicine, cooking utensils, as well as in thermal and electrical insulations. Some typical forms are silicone oil, silicone grease, silicone rubber, silicone resin, or silicone caulk.

Silicone can be developed into rubber sheeting, where it has other properties, like being FDA compliant. This improves the uses of silicone sheeting to industries that demand hygiene, such as food and beverage and pharmaceutical industries. In the automotive field, silicone grease is generally utilised as a lubricant for brake components as it is often stable at high temperatures, is not soluble in water, and it is far less likely than other lubricants to foul. DOT 5 brake fluids are also based on liquid silicones. Silicone tubing is often utilised in automotive intake systems, especially when it comes to the engines with forced induction.
