The difference between ordinary silicone products and silicone foam products

- Apr 12, 2018-

With the increase of market economic pressure, customers have stricter requirements and performance for products. The appearance and sealability of the product are still highly valued. Today we will analyze what is the biggest difference between ordinary silicone products and foamed products:

  1. The hardness of ordinary silicone products is hard; the hardness of silicone foam products is soft

  2. Ordinary silicone products have poor resilience performance and silicone foam products have good resilience

  3 ordinary silicone products temperature -40 ~ 280 degrees, silicone foam products temperature -20 ~ 200 degrees

  4. The general silicone rubber sealing performance reaches IP67, and the sealing performance of silicone foaming products can reach IP68 better than ordinary silicone sealing performance.

  5. Normal silicone product stretch rate is 300%; silicone foam product stretch rate is 200%

  6. Ordinary silicone pull tear resistance and silicone foam strip better tear resistance

  7. Ordinary silicone products are composed of silica gel and masterbatch; silicone foam products are composed of silica gel + foaming agent + masterbatch

  8. The cost of ordinary silicone products is low; the cost of silicone foam products is high

  9. Short production cycle of common silicone products; long cost for silicone foam products

  10. Ordinary silicone products make colored products easy; silicone foam products are not easy to color

  11. Ordinary silicone products have a bending performance of 90 degrees; silicone foam products can be bent freely
