What types of silicone products are there, let me tell you
Nowadays we use silicone products in many places in our lives, for example, the more common is silicone kitchenware, however, you certainly do not know that in addition to silicone kitchenware there are many other types of silicone products, such as some food-grade, medical-grade silicone products, the following OYIGIFTS will take you to understand what silicone products, what are the respective uses.
Silicone materials can be divided into general grade, food grade, medical grade and special silicone types. Food grade silicone is non-toxic and tasteless, insoluble in water and any solvent, and is a highly active green product.
Organic silica gel is mainly used in aviation, cutting-edge technology, military technology sector special materials and construction, electrical and electronic, automotive, machinery, chemical light industry, medicine, etc.; inorganic silica gel is most mainly used in desiccant, catalyst carrier, matting agent, toothpaste abrasive, etc.
The toughness and elasticity of silicone products are very good, and will not be deformed by external forces, and non-toxic, tasteless and colorless, no harm to human body.
A brief analysis of what uses silicone products have.
1, for baby products, mother and baby products, baby bottles, bottle protectors.
2, for kitchen products, kitchenware production and related auxiliary kitchenware.
3, used for beauty ornaments, daily necessities, such as silicone watch straps, silicone brackets, silicone bracelets, etc.
4, for conductive silicone, medical silicone, foam silicone, mold-making silicone, etc.
5, for silicone pads, silicone plugs, seals.
6, used for copiers, keyboards, electronic dictionaries, remote controls, toys, silicone keys.
7、Used for gasket, encapsulation material of electronic parts, auto electronic parts.
8、Used in aviation, cutting-edge technology, military technology sector for special materials and construction.
The main series of silicone products are as follows.
1) Mother and baby series: including silicone spoons, silicone bowls, silicone dinner plates, silicone teether, silicone pacifiers, silicone supplement bottles, silicone bibs, etc.
2) Outdoor sports series: including folding cups, retractable water bottles, sports bracelets, sports watches, silicone shoe covers, etc.
3) Beauty series: including face wash brush, facial cleanser, makeup brush cleaning pad, nail pad, makeup mirror, silicone powder puff, etc.
4）Kitchen series: including chopping board, cleaning gloves, heat insulation mat, non-slip mat, coaster, draining rack, dishwashing basket, dishwashing brush, spatula, spatula, silicone preservation cover, cake mould, cake cup, egg cooker, silicone seasoning bowl, etc.
5) Everyday household series: including night light, tea brewer, ice compartment, ashtray, wine bottle stopper, acupuncture point beat, bath brush, silicone bristle brush, silicone keychain, placemat, etc.
Some of the main production methods for silicone products are
One, moulding: is the silicone rubber material in the closed mold cavity by virtue of heating, pressure and molding into finished products of silicone rubber processing methods. It is usually made from a powdered rubber block, which is similar in shape to the finished product, placed in a heated mould cavity, then closed and pressurised to form and cure or vulcanise it, and then demoulded to produce a finished product.
Moulded products include: silicone rubber parts, bracelets, mobile phone covers, cake ware, LED light plugs, etc.
Advantages: 1. can be made into any shape; 2. high precision, beautiful and regular shape of products.
Disadvantages: 1. can only be made in lengths less than 600mm; 2. will produce a lot of burrs and scrap; 3. expensive mould costs, long development cycle, low output.
Second, dip coating: after the liquidization of silicone rubber, through the spraying or dip coating of the product surface with silicone rubber material wrapped product process.
Dip-coated products include: high-temperature wire, glass fiber tube, finger cover, etc.
Disadvantages: 1. can only be used for consistent colour painting, can not be set colour; 2. the lower part of the coated object coating film thickness is not uniform; 3. solvent volatilization; 4. easy to pollute the environment; 5. the loss rate of paint is also larger.
Three, calendering: products have thickness rules infinite length through the CNC roll pitch equipment pressure extrusion molding process.
Calendering products are: silicone rubber rolls, table mats, coasters, window flowers, etc.
Four, injection: silicone rubber material through the liquid or solid injection into the mold molding process. The products can be moulded in the same way as moulding, but the performance of the products is different.
Injected products include: medical accessories, baby products, bottle teats, car accessories, toy accessories, etc.
There are many different types of silicone products and their roles vary, but the main one is to facilitate our lives and bring convenience to our lives.
