Due to the unique structure of organic silicon, it combines the properties of inorganic materials and organic materials. It has basic properties such as low surface tension, low viscosity-temperature coefficient, high compressibility, and high gas permeability. It also has high and low temperature resistance, electrical insulation, and oxidation resistance. Excellent properties such as resistance, weather resistance, flame retardancy, water repellency, corrosion resistance, non-toxic, odorless, and physiological inertia. It is widely used in aerospace, electronic and electrical, construction, transportation, chemical, textile, food, light industry, medical and other industries. Among them, silicone is mainly used in sealing, bonding, lubrication, coating, surface activity, demoulding, defoaming, foam suppression, waterproofing, moisture-proof, inert filling, etc. With the continuous growth of the number and variety of silicones, the application areas continue to expand, forming a unique and important product system in the field of new chemical materials. Many varieties are irreplaceable and indispensable for other chemicals.
The metabolism of organisms also requires the participation of organosilicon, and the chemical formula of such organosilicon is usually CH3(SiOH)3. Silicone plays an important role in various functions of the body and is directly related to the absorption of minerals. The human body has an average of about seven grams of silicon, which far exceeds other important minerals such as iron. Iron and silicon are essential elements for the human body and play a very important role in maintaining normal metabolism.
According to their different forms, silicone materials can be divided into: silane coupling agent (organosilicon chemical reagent), biologically active silicone, silicone oil (silicone grease, silicone emulsion, silicone surfactant), high-temperature vulcanized silicone rubber, liquid silicone Rubber, silicone resin, compound, etc.
