In our modern world society depends on high performance and every product needs to work better than it did 25 or 30 years ago. In one way or another silicones enhance the performance of millions of modern products, making our lives better every day. They are polymers or oligomers of high versatility, displaying a host of unique properties that can lubricate, bond, seal, release, deform, encapsulate, waterproof and coat.

Silicones can be described as performing, protecting and bringing style materials. Performance stems in the wide range of properties allowing them to be:

  • Adhering or releasing
