The name “silicones” applies to a group of synthetic polymers which, because of their outstanding elasticity and heat-resistance, take on an unparalleled position compared to other adhesives in dispensing and metering technology. Their elasticity and heat-resistance are outstanding. Silicones come in the most diverse forms, e.g. as liquids, as rubber-like elastomers, as relatively brittle silicone resin or oxidation, chemical and temperature-resistant fluorosilicones in the forms of oils, fats or pastes.
- Depending on the dispensing application and profile of requirements, one or two-component (1K or 2K) compounds are used (RTV-1 and RTV-2 silicones).
- Because of their enormous flexibility and high temperature resistance, silicones can be used in the most diverse ways.
- Silicones are most often used for dispensing and metering applications in medical technology, as they are considered harmless.
- Silicones are used as sealants and fillers, as additives in oils, cleaning products, paints, printer inks and hydraulic oils and are used among other things as shock absorbent media.
