The silicone products industry is growing, and technology is constantly being updated. As silicone products are widely used in various industries, there are more and more silicone products on the market. However, there are also some inferior or fake silicone products. The following Weishun silicone editor will tell you.
1. Abrasion resistance
Abrasion resistance is the production of silicone product molding. The surface of silicone products can suffer the ability of loss. Good silicone products’ general surface rarely, due to external factors, friction off the surface of the product does not affect the appearance, text, or color performance. And the quality of poor-quality silicone products’ surface character is easy to fall.
Silicone products have good elasticity because the high elasticity is mainly from the movement of silicone molecular chain segments, so when buying silicone products, first look at the elasticity of silicone products to judge the quality.
3. Tear strength and tensile strength
Silicone products with high tear strength have outstanding resistance to damage and long life and are not easily disturbed by the external environment; silicone products with poor tear strength are generally prone to cracking during the tearing process, thus rapidly expanding and cracking when the force is applied and leading to the phenomenon of damage.
4. Fatigue resistance
Silicone products are subjected to alternating stress (or strain), and the structure and performance of the material change in the phenomenon called fatigue. As the fatigue process proceeds, the phenomenon that leads to the destruction of silicone products is called fatigue damage.
5. Stiffness and fixed extension stress
Reflecting the rigidity of rubber materials (stiffness) of the important indicators, the two are the force required to produce a certain deformation of silicone products.
Therefore, when buying silicone products, the most important thing is to first look at the abrasion resistance, elasticity, and tear strength. If it meets, it means it is a good quality silicone product. If it does not meet, give up so as not to cause the loss of financial resources.
