What material is silicone plastic, characteristics and advantages/disadvantages of silicone plastic panels?

February 11, 2024

Silicone plastic is a resin product obtained from simple organic compounds through chemical synthesis or certain natural products through chemical reactions. It is a mixture of multiple components, usually an amorphous solid with a slightly glossy surface, hard and brittle texture, and a few are semi-solid.


Silicon plastic material is a new generation of fiberglass replacement material, which reduces the cost of silicon plastic raw materials by 50%. It has the advantages of strong load capacity, heat resistance, cold resistance, acid and alkali resistance, aging resistance, easy equipment, and portability.


Characteristics of silicone plastic:

1. It is hard and brittle, and the synthesis of silicone plastic is insoluble in water and does not absorb water or expand. It is easily soluble in most organic solvents such as alcohol, ether, chloroform, etc.

2. When burning, there is thick smoke and a special aroma or odor.


The characteristics of silicone plastic plates, such as silicone plastic manhole covers and silicone plastic cover plates, are mainly made of silicone plastic, greatly enhancing the application performance of manhole covers and cover plates. Compared with ordinary manhole cover products, the service life is longer and the price is also cheaper.
