Demand on the energy sector is higher than ever. This has led to an increasing need for efficiency improvements to be made using reliable products, whilst limiting impacts to the environment.
Silicone sponge is used in a variety of applications but generally its purpose is to seal, insulate or protect an application from flame, heat, water, dust or general weathering.
Silicone rubber is widely used within the energy sector.
Silicone rubber is an elastomer composed of silicone(present in silica) together with carbon,oxygen and hydrogen.
IN 1930, JAMES FRANKLIN HYDE RAN THE FIRST RESEARCH TO PRODUCE COMMERCIAL SILICONES.
Silicon is an element which is present in silica (sand) while silicone rubber is manufactured by extracting silicon from silica and passing it through hydrocarbons. It's then mixed with the other chemicals to create silicone.
A silicone or polysiloxane is a polymer made up of siloxane (−R2Si−O−SiR2−, where R = organic group).
