What are Silicones?
Silicones are fascinating polymers that we use in our everyday life. They are among the world’s most important and adaptable raw materials, used in literally thousands of products and applications – from healthcare, aerospace and personal care, to electronics, transportation, construction and energy. Silicones exceptional breadth of chemical and physical properties makes silicones important to achieving innovation in key sectors of the economy. Because they are flexible and resistant to moisture, chemicals, heat, cold and ultraviolet radiation, they also make products more stable, easier to use, more affordable and longer-lasting.
