Siloxanes Production Cost Analysis 2021

In organosilicon chemistry, a siloxane is a functional group. The parent siloxanes include the oligomeric and polymeric hydrides. Siloxanes also involve branched compounds, where the defining feature is that each pair of silicon centres is separated by one oxygen atom. According to the molecular weights, siloxanes are classified as either linear or cyclic volatile methyl siloxanes, polydimethylsiloxanes, aka PDMS, or polyethermethylsiloxanes aka PEMS. 

The siloxane functional group develops the backbone of silicones. The premier example of that is polydimethylsiloxane. Siloxanes are manmade and have many commercial as well as industrial applications.

Siloxanes, or silicones, are manmade saturated silicone-oxygen hydrides.

They can be used in several commercials as well as in industrial applications. Since the 1940s, siloxanes are used in several cosmetic, electronic, household, and medical device products. Siloxanes are also used in the automobile industry, both as car waxes and fuel additives.
