Silicone resin is indeed a common category. Silicone products can be low-molecular-weight and fluid liquid substances (monomers, oils, emulsions), high-molecular-weight elastomers (rubbers), or branched structures. Resins, and secondary products or modifiers of oils, rubbers, and resins.


Several main materials in the silicone market are introduced as follows:


1. Silane coupling agent

Silane coupling agent is a kind of low molecular compound. One end of silicon atom is connected with hydrolyzable chlorine or various alkoxy groups, which can be connected with inorganic substances after hydrolysis; the other end has various functional groups that can interact with organic substances. Such as amino, vinyl, mercapto, etc., so silane coupling agents can bridge organic and inorganic substances. There are nearly one hundred kinds of silane coupling agents in common use.


2. Silicone oil

Silicone oil is a low-molecular polysiloxane containing single or different organic groups, which can be made into various viscosities. Silicone oil has low surface tension and large contact angle with water, making it a high-quality water-repellent material. The application of silicone oil or its modified preparations in cosmetics has grown rapidly in recent years. Silicone oil is not oily or greasy when applied to the skin, feels smooth and comfortable, and can be made into various skin creams.

3. Silicone rubber

According to the vulcanization mechanism, silicone rubber can be divided into high temperature vulcanized silicone rubber (HTV); room temperature vulcanized silicone rubber (RTV) and addition molded liquid silicone rubber (LSR). It has heat resistance, cold resistance, ozone resistance, ultraviolet resistance, atomic oxygen resistance, and The characteristics of cosmic rays and comprehensive performance such as waterproof and shockproof.


4. Silicone resin

The insulating material made of silicone resin belongs to the H-class due to its good heat resistance and insulation performance. The motor made of it is small in size, light in weight, and highly reliable. It will not burn out under short-term overheating and overload.
