Liquid Silicone Rubber Types: Exploring Applications and Characteristics

Hey there, guys! Ready to embark on a journey where science meets creativity and innovation takes center stage? Well, buckle up because we’re about to introduce you to a realm where molds come to life, and rubber and plastic take on a whole new level of cool.

Silicone exists in two physical states: flowing liquid and solid. Liquid silicone flows with a certain viscosity, similar to water, and solidifies when exposed to a curing agent or catalyst. The solidified silicone takes various forms based on its intended application and required properties.

  • Mold Silicone:

Mold liquid silicone is a novel molding material with advantages in production efficiency and cost over steel molds. Widely used in toy manufacturing, personalized reproduction, architecture, and unsaturated resin crafts.

  • Pad Printing Silicone:

Specifically designed for pad printing on plastics, commonly applied in plastic toys, electroplating, and electronic toys. Controlled viscosity by adding silicone oil ensures precise printing.

  • Electronic Encapsulation Silicone:

Ideal for potting electronic products, providing sealing, waterproofing, dustproofing, thermal conductivity, and shockproofing. Also used in LED potting due to high transparency.

  • Hand-Used Silicone:

Known as the first version of silicone, used for creating hand models. Cured silicone exhibits abrasion resistance and strong elasticity.

  • Silicone Rubber:

Commonly known as glass glue, solidifies without additional curing agents. Adheres to glass gaps and offers weather resistance, vibration resistance, moisture resistance, and odor resistance.

  • Clothing Label Silicone:

Applied in solidifying clothing logos, providing a pleasing hand feel, wear resistance, and high production efficiency.

  • High-Temperature Silicone:

Withstands temperatures from 200 to 300 degrees Celsius, suitable for aviation and gold stamping industries in the 400°C to 1300°C range.

  • Human Body Silicone:

A low solidification hardness liquid silicone, environmentally friendly and biocompatible. Used in artificial limbs and character simulation.
