Silicones are leading the way of life in the electronic age in many ways. Silicones are used in the manufacture of cell phones, the Internet, wireless computers, and smart cards.

High-performance materials made with silicone technology are making their way into today's increasingly demanding electronics and electrical fields. Silicones seal and protect extremely sensitive circuits, semiconductors and equipment from heat, contamination and accidental damage, and help ensure a continuous supply of electricity.

Silicone provides a perfect seal to protect extremely sensitive electronic components and components from external contamination or movement. This is important for ensuring the long-term stability and performance of many electronic products. In addition, silicone materials will not corrode or spontaneously ignite, meeting the most stringent safety and purity requirements in the production and manufacture of electronic products.

The insulating properties of silicone help protect the circuits of televisions, computers and aircraft video displays from heat, dirt and dust. At the same time, silicone is ideal for high-voltage applications, insulating above-ground and underground cables and power lines.

Enhanced performance

As electronic devices get thinner, smaller, and faster, the excellent physical properties of silicones make them useful in new applications: high temperature and low temperature stability, excellent insulation, strength, Elasticity and toughness, moisture resistance, chemical stability, UV resistance and other environmental protection properties, can bond and protect a variety of materials.

Silicone sealants, adhesives and conformal coatings can be used in most consumer and commercial electronic equipment basic components, consumer electronics, LEDs, semiconductors, circuits, connectors, capacitors, coils, transistors and picture tubes, etc. The uses are as follows.

Silicone isolates extremely sensitive automotive electronic components. Silicones help protect the performance of electronic components at extreme temperatures from humidity, salt corrosion and other corrosive environments. Silicones help ensure reliable operation of electronic components in air bags, body components, brake systems, ignition, fuel and air systems and transmissions.

Consumer electronics refers to electronic devices that can be used by consumers on a daily basis. According to different functions, traditional consumer electronic products can be divided into three categories: entertainment products, communication products, and home office products, and their outer boundaries are constantly expanding. White goods, baby furniture, etc. have gradually been included in the category of consumer electronics. The functions also show a trend of diversification.

In recent years, driven by factors such as the continuous development of mobile Internet technology, the improvement of the manufacturing level of consumer electronic products and the increase of residents' income levels, the consumer electronics industry has shown a sustained and stable development trend. Data shows that in 2021, affected by the new crown epidemic, the global consumer electronics industry market size will decline, but it has not changed the long-term upward development trend of the consumer electronics industry market size. The integration of emerging technologies such as display and consumer electronics products will accelerate product upgrading, give birth to new product forms, and promote the growth of the consumer electronics industry. According to Statista's forecast, the market size will reach 1.11 trillion US dollars in 2023.

Consumer electronics are moving towards miniaturization, lightness, and intelligence. The investment in communication base station equipment brought about by 5G commercial use, and the vigorous development of power batteries are expected to significantly boost the demand for thermally conductive materials, which have good market prospects.

With the rapid development of the domestic LED industry, the improvement of LED chip technology and LED packaging technology, the demand for LED packaging glue has increased significantly. There is a trend of import substitution. China has become the world's largest LED production base.

Automatic coffee makers, digital answering machines, microwave ovens, steam irons, stereo systems, televisions, washing machines, vacuum cleaners - the electronic components of almost all household appliances are protected by silicone materials, which extend their lifespan . With silicones, appliances are safer, more reliable and require less maintenance. Silicones have also enabled the creation of new "smart appliances", with smaller electronic systems and more advanced functions.

Silicones can encapsulate and protect semiconductors—the essential components of nearly every electronic device. High-voltage/power applications such as industrial motors, locomotives, and power supplies that require high-voltage switches: Cell phone base stations, satellites, and radar, etc. High-frequency communications: Aircraft engines, oil drilling, and high-temperature applications for automotive electronics (including sensors to control fuel efficiency and emissions): The operation of these devices requires semiconductors.

Silicones can extend the life of electronics. Silicone retains its wear and tear resistance properties even under the harshest conditions. Therefore, it is the best building block for durable goods such as computers, cars, airplanes, and household appliances. Silicone sealants and adhesives provide the durability and longevity consumers demand.
