A material with remarkable properties
Silicones occupy an intermediate position between organic and
inorganic compounds. They are still relatively young materials, their
chemical composition having been discovered only at the beginning of the
20th century. And although industrial-scale production has not been
possible until the 1940s, it has since experienced an unprecedented rise
The reason for this high demand is that silicones feature a unique
spectrum of properties and uses, a versatility unmatched by any other
synthetic material. Their exceptional resistance to ageing, weather
conditions, radiation, temperature, and chemicals makes them an
indispensable material e.g. in the construction or automotive industry.
Due to their physiological harmlessness, proper and careful workmanship
provided, silicones also play an important part in the manufacture or
processing of food and pharmaceutical products, as well as in the field
of medical technology.
In the following overview, the most important properties of silicones have been compiled in considerably shortened form.
