What are the characteristics of good quality silicone products?

- Mar 20, 2018-

With the continuous development and innovation of the silicone industry, due to the wide application of silicone products in various industries, more and more silicone products are on the market. However, there are also some inferior or counterfeit silicone products. How do we do when purchasing silicone products? To determine the quality of silicone products?

First, wear resistance

  Abrasion resistance is the ability of silicone products to produce and shape, and the surface of silicone products can suffer from loss. Generally, the surface of good silicone products is rarely rubbed off the surface due to external factors, which does not affect the appearance, text, and color of the performance. The quality of poor quality silicone products surface characters easily fall.

Second, flexibility

  Silicone products have good elasticity, because the high elasticity mainly comes from the movement of the molecular segments of the silica gel, so when purchasing silicone products, first look at the elasticity of the silicone products to determine the quality

Third, tear strength and tensile strength

  Silicone products with high tear strength have outstanding anti-destructive ability, long service life, and are not easily disturbed by the external environment. Silicone products with poor tear strength are generally manifested in cracking during tearing, and thus rapidly expand and crack when subjected to stress and cause damage. phenomenon.

Fourth, fatigue resistance

   When silicone products are subjected to alternating stress (or strain), the phenomenon of changes in the structure and properties of the material is called fatigue. With the progress of the fatigue process, the phenomenon of destruction of silicone products is called fatigue failure.

Fifth, hardness and Depth Stress

  Reflecting the important indicators of rigidity (stiffness) of rubber materials, both are the forces needed to produce certain deformation of silicone products. Therefore, when purchasing silicone products, the most important thing is to first look at the wear resistance, elasticity, and tear strength. If it is in compliance, it means that the product is a good quality silicone product. If it is not satisfied, give up, so as not to cause financial loss.
