Do You Know Why Silicone Products Will Appear Moldy?

- Mar 28, 2018-

In recent days, the weather in many areas is relatively hot and rainy, and it is a season of relatively easy colds! In this seasonal environment, many products are prone to moldy growth and black spots. For example, in wet areas, this phenomenon is most likely to occur! Therefore, many families commonly used silicone kitchen utensils, silicone daily necessities, etc. are prone to this phenomenon, and this phenomenon is not only the impact of the environment, such as silicone kitchen utensils is only one of them, many friends use the cleaning is completed directly Into the locker, the evaporation of the water droplets and sealed cabinets are also one of the causes of moldy, in addition to the strong adsorption capacity of silica gel, the deterioration of the foreign matter in the air plus long-term placement, black, moldy phenomenon It is also inevitable!

   Therefore, before the moldy phenomenon occurs in the silicone kitchenware, it is necessary to find the moldy problems that can be properly prevented. In addition to the effects of climate, the main causes of moldy symptoms include some additives in silicone raw materials, such as silicone oils, powdered plastics, vulcanizing agents, etc., which are influential. These are the nutritional bodies that these molds grow. The growth of mold caused the erosion of plant proteins and carbohydrates in silicone rubber. In addition, due to the inert and electrostatic effects of silicone rubber, impurities in the air are adsorbed on the surface of the product, which can also lead to the growth of mold.

   General silicone products manufacturers should consider such factors, so for the appearance of moldy silicone kitchenware in addition to raw materials, the main thing is to rely on their own control, silicone kitchen utensils can be placed in a ventilated place to keep dry, clean silicone products After the completion, according to the temperature and the humidity at the crevice, choose to air dry for 1-2 hours, to facilitate the gap dry, will not produce mildew. Can be wiped with alcohol after appearance of moldy phenomenon, if several methods are difficult to solve can use anti-mold agent to deal with, anti-mold agent should have high thermal stability, good weather resistance, low volatility and good material compatibility Features. In addition, we should also choose safer varieties for the human body.
