What is the difference between silicone and rubber product?
First of all, silicone rubber products is known collectively as silicone products and rubber products, because these two products are made of similar materials, processing and molding equipment and similar processes, so they are classified as a large class of products.
Rubber products are highly elastic polymer compounds, including unvulcanized and vulcanized varieties. It can be divided into natural rubber products and synthetic rubber products two categories. Natural rubber is made from rubber latex. Synthetic rubber products from the monomer by polymerization or polycondensation in the system. Vulcanized rubber products commonly known as raw rubber products or raw rubber. Vulcanized rubber products are called vulcanized rubber products, commonly known as cooked rubber products or rubber. Widely used in the manufacture of seals, foot pads, and other rubber products.
Silicone products are a kind of silicone rubber, is a one-component room temperature vulcanization of liquid rubber products. Once exposed to air, the silane monomer condensation occurs, the formation of network structure, the system cross-linking, can not melt and dissolve, flexible, into rubber products, while bonding objects. Its thermal conductivity than the average rubber products slightly higher, once cured, it is difficult to separate the object of bonding.
Silicone caps are mainly made of high-grade silicone products, feel more soft, strong elongation, and very durable.
Other silicone products are: silicone strap, silicone labels, silicone shade, silicone bracelet and so on.
