Silicone Adjuvant Manufacturers introduce Properties of siloxanes: A polymer containing Si—O—Si bond to form the main chain structure. Traditionally called silicone or polysiloxane, it can be a linear, cyclic, or cross-linked polymer.
According to product application, it is classified into three categories: silicone oil, silicone rubber, and silicone resin.
The raw material for the synthesis of siloxane is the derivative of silane SinH2n+2. Linear siloxanes and cyclic siloxanes can be obtained by hydrolysis of R2SiCl2-type organochlorosilanes. The cross-linked siloxane is obtained by hydrolysis and polycondensation of R2SiCl2 and RSiCl3 type organochlorosilane.
Siloxane is stable to heat and chemical agents, not wetted by water, has outstanding aging resistance, excellent hydrophobicity, and electrical insulation. Used as a fire retardant, lubricant, moisture-proof agent. Silicone resins are used to make fiber-reinforced materials. Silicone rubber is also used in adhesives and sealing materials.
