Silicones bring unique performances and properties that make them the material of choice for countless essential applications in our day-to-day lives. They can make materials that do not want to stick together adhere. They are thermally stable meaning they retain their properties under high thermal stress (which means severe temperature changes). They help cool systems down, insulate, lubricate, protect and much more!
The unique properties of silicones can help minimise the interaction forces between surfaces.
This is why silicones are used in applications such as baking paper or labels, ensuring that the surface of the application does not stick or attach to other materials.
