The silicone sealant is one kind of adhesive and usually used to form a watertight or airtight seal in a joint between two surfaces. In some occasions, the silicone sealant is also known as silicone. It is commonly referred as to “Silicone”
Under the normal situation, silicone has a look in a liquid and gel form when it is used for the first time. When it is dried under an appropriate temperature and humidity, it will be cured and become a piece of stronger rubber. After being cured, the silicone products is as durable and flexible as solid rubber.
Silicone is usually divided into two main categories: Neutral and Acid. The Acid silicone is ideal for non porous surfaces, such as glazed tiles and glass. However, when the acid silicone is directly applied on a surface that is not suitable, it will be corrosive to it. For wood or fragile plastics and metal, neutral silicone will be better.
Most silicone sealants are widely used. They are often used for several applications and suitable for bonding of several materials. It can be squeezed out anytime in any temperature. After being cured, it has good movement capability, which can withstand caused displacement by vibration. It can be used for sealing in general indoor decorations, waterproofing, and caulking of hardware. The hygiene silicone sealant can inhibit mold growth so it is ideal for a moist environment (such as the bathroom).
