Silicones are not one thing. They are many things!

  • Silicones come in many forms – from pourable liquids to rock-hard solids – which enables designers and manufacturers to use them in all kinds of products and processes.
  • Silicones can be engineered to perform an amazing range of functions – from adhesives to release agents ... from antifoams to foam stabilizers.
  • Silicones share some common features that give them distinct advantages over other materials.

Silicones make existing materials work better, longer, and more reliably. They fuel our imaginations and make new products possible.

In a society that runs on performance and strives for sustainability, silicones are invaluable tools.
