The Challenge

Silicones are used in a great diversity of applications, to improve our everyday lives with safer, more comfortable and more convenient products.

  • The transport industry on land, sea and in the air uses silicone in fluids, polymers, lubricants, engine seals, air bag coatings and for tire manufacturing

  • In the electrical and electronics industries, silicones are used for insulation and electrical protection, electronic sealing and potting, cable and equipment padding, heat resistance and fire protection

  • For the paint and coatings industry, silicones are used in paints, varnishes, papers, textiles, leather and adhesives

  • In industrial applications, silicones are used to manufacture decorative molds, industrial castings, art reproductions, anti-foam products for pulp and paper and for treating effluents

  • In the construction industry, silicones are used in architectural molds, structural seals, glass assembly, waterproofing, treatment of outside walls, sanitation installations and solar panel fastenings.

To serve these diverse industries and needs, silicone producers must not only provide their customers with customized products, they must know and understand their needs and work collaboratively with them in Research & Development and provide them with reliable logistics services and full technical support. ​
