Application of Silicone Rubber

Silicone rubber has heat resistance after vulcanization: its physical function is basically unchanged at 150°C, and it can be used for a long time. Cold resistance: the embrittlement temperature is -60°C-70°C. Weather resistance: It has good resistance to oxygen and ozone, ultraviolet rays, water, and acid and alkali erosion. Silicone rubber can be used outdoors for a long time in harsh environments without cracking or adhesion. Electrical insulation: It can be used in a wide range of temperature and frequency, and the disturbance is not large. Breathability: It has good air permeability, which is better than natural rubber. Physiological inertness: Silicone rubber is non-toxic and tasteless, and is inert to the human body. Silicone rubber has the above excellent comprehensive properties, and it is widely used in many fields.

1. Aerospace and aviation industry

The flight conditions of aircraft and spacecraft are harsh and the weather is uncertain, which requires rubber to be resistant to high and low temperatures. Ozone resistance, UV resistance characteristics. The characteristics of silicone rubber just meet these requirements, and are widely used in aerospace cockpits, seals, hot air ducts, and damping materials for instrument shock absorption systems.

2. Wire and cable power transmission

Silicone rubber wires and cables can work at high temperatures of 150°C-200°C for a long time. At the same time, it can withstand 90% of the current overload. Silicone rubber is extremely resistant to ozone, which can prolong the working life of cables and wires. Silicone rubber has electrical insulation properties and hydrophobicity, so it is widely used in the manufacture of insulating materials, lightning arresters and cables.

3. Automobile industry

In recent years, saving fuel and improving safety has become a new direction for automobile development. Silicone rubber can meet heat resistance, cream, and low temperature flexibility for engines and airbags; electronic components can meet electrical insulation, high and low temperature resistance, and long-term effectiveness and reliability; car body and The lighting meets the characteristics of low compression deformation, convenient construction and UV resistance.

4. Electronic industry

Heat vulcanized silicone rubber is mainly used in plug-ins, electrical seals, shock absorbers, insulating tapes, etc. Conductive silicone rubber can be used as conductive connectors for electronic appliances, buttons for various electronic computers, TVs, fax machines, and remote controls for electronic game consoles. Comprehensive room temperature vulcanized silicone rubber is mainly used for encapsulation, perfusion, impregnation, coating, bonding and component shaping materials.

5. Other industries

Silicone rubber is also used in copier external chemical industry, plastic rubber processing industry, preventive industry, leather industry, papermaking, printing and video screen, etc.

Silicone rubber has a wide range of application scenarios and can be seen everywhere, bringing a lot of convenience to our lives. At the same time, further research is being carried out to make it work better and expand the application field.
