The characteristics of organic silicone

The Fundamental Building Block of organic silicone products is Silicon – oxygen link ,Side chain is through the silicon atoms connected to a variety of other organic groups ,Therefore, in the structure of the organic silicon products containing both “organic groups”, and “inorganic structure”, the special composition and molecular structure to make it combines the characteristics of organic matter and inorganic matter functions in one. Compared with other polymers, organic silicon products the most outstanding performance is:
1.The heat resistance properties
Organic silicon products of high thermal stability, high temperature (or radiation exposure) molecular bonds do not broken, do not break down .
2.The weather resistance properties
Organic silicon has better thermal stability than other high polymer materials as well as the ability of radiation resistance and weather resistance. The service life of organic silicon in the natural environment can be up to several decades.
3.Electrical insulation performance
Organic silicon products have good electrical insulating properties, the dielectric loss, voltage resistance, arc resistance, corona resistance, volume resistivity and surface resistivity of all came out on top in the insulation material, and their electrical performance is affected by temperature and frequency is small.
4.The physiological inertia
They are very resistant to biological aging, and the animal body without rejection, and has good anticoagulant capability.
5.Low surface tension and surface energy
Main chain of organic silicon is very smooth, the intermolecular force is much weaker than hydrocarbons, therefore, than with low molecular weight hydrocarbons viscosity, surface tension, surface energy is small, film forming ability.
