There are many types of Silicone Adjuvant , which are mainly divided into three categories according to the chemical structure and performance of the product:
①Silicone oil (modified silicone oil) is low molecular weight (generally less than 10,000) linear structure polymer. In order to achieve certain properties, the molecular structure will also be grafted and modified. Colorless or light yellow transparent liquid, hydrophobic and oleophobic, with high boiling point and low freezing point, good heat resistance, and chemical stability is used in all walks of life as chemical additives; the most common of which can be used as Defoamers in all walks of life, hydraulic oils, advanced lubricating oils, filler surface treatment agents and demulsifiers, latex coagulants, and can also be used as waterproofing/water reducing agents for building materials, textiles, paper, and many other substances, plastics Industry lubricants, mold release agents, hair moisturizers for personal care, foam stabilizers in foamed polyurethane, and leveling agents in the agricultural ink and coating industry. It is also a good electrical insulator.
②Silicone rubber is a linear structure polymer with a large molecular weight (one hundred thousand grades). After adding fillers and other additives and vulcanization, an elastomer, namely silicone rubber, can be obtained. Silicone rubber has the characteristics of electrical insulation, chemical stability, physiological inertness, and good elasticity in a wide temperature range; it is mainly used in the manufacture of rubber products used at high or low temperatures and artificial organs required in plastic surgery.
③Silicone resin is a linear structure polymer that contains active groups and can be further cured. It can produce heat-resistant advanced electrical insulating paint (silicon paint), heat-resistant plastic (silicon plastic), laminated glass cloth and protective coating, etc.
