Silicone elastomers has been gaining significant importance from a wide range of end-use industries, especially from the construction industry. Evolution of advance liquid silicone rubber (LSR) technology has experienced exponential growth mainly in the high-tech application fields. Silicone elastomers are also used widely in the medical appliances sector and its utility has been increasing every year with increasing trend towards self-treatment of chronic ailments including blood conditions, autoimmune diseases, and hormone diseases.
In the other areas such as portable water and food processing, severely strict environmental as well as safety and health considered as catalyst to move to LSR. In the automotive industry, the rising trends of autonomous cars means vehicles are equipped with more and more electronic features, and that promotes the demand for integrated and super clean liquid silicone elastomer and LSR components. The growing demand for these products are related to demographics, urbanization and social changes as the growing affluent population has a higher buying power for electronics and other categories of lifestyle consumables.
Silicone elastomers are used widely in the present original equipment manufacturing industry owing to its extreme versality that makes it compatible to a wide range of end-use conditions. As silicone are liquid raw materials, it offers superior advantages in processing, which makes it the premier option for materials to be used for technical components in high volumes.
