The difference of liquid silicone and solid silicone
1.The shape difference of liquid silicone and solid
A. Liquid silicone is liquid state and has fluidity. It is a highly transparent and high-safety food-grade material. No auxiliary materials such as vulcanizing agents are added during molding, and it is sealed and fed into molding.
B. Solid silicone is solid state and has no fluidity. It is also a transparent and environmentally friendly material. When molding, it is necessary to add a vulcanizing agent to speed up the vulcanization molding time, and open the mold for feeding.
2. The difference of liquid silicone and solid in the field of use
A. Liquid silicone is generally used in baby products(such as silicone nipple,silicone baby bib and so on), kitchen supplies( silicone spoon,silicone shovel,silicone cake mold and so on)and medical supplies(lancet cover), and it can directly contact food and human body.,
B. Solid silicone is generally used in daily necessities(such as phone case,silicone bracelets,silicone keychain and so on), industrial miscellaneous parts and auto parts.
C. Safety of liquid silicone and solid silicone: Liquid silicone is a food-grade material with high transparency and safety. No auxiliary materials such as vulcanizing agents are added during molding, and it is sealed and fed into molding. Solid silicone is a transparent material. When molding, it is necessary to add a vulcanizing agent to speed up the vulcanization molding time, and open the mold for feeding molding.
3.The difference of the molding ways of liquid silicone and solid silicone
A.Liquid silicone is injection molding liquid silicone rubber (LSR): the full name is injection molding liquid silicone rubber, and the vulcanization equipment is an injection molding machine. The injection molding machine has a very simple process (no manual processes such as batching, rubber mixing, cutting, and placing in the high-temperature glue process are required, only one worker can take the product), and the product accuracy is high (all manual procedures before molding All are replaced by machines), high output (A/B glue is mixed in a few seconds at a certain temperature), saving labor, electricity, materials and many other advantages, can produce all products produced by high temperature glue. Liquid silicone is usually used in industry to de-sodium water glass to make silica sol by ion exchange method. It is a translucent milky white liquid with high stability. The silicone becomes a porous solid after drying.
B.Solid silicone molding is that the raw materials are solid pieces. After mixing by the mixer, the cutting machine cuts the product and the mold into the appropriate size and thickness, and then puts it into the mold, and the pressure molding machine is pressed at a certain temperature. When demoulding is similar to plastic products, it is also necessary to clean the mold.
4.The difference of the storage time of liquid silicone and solid silicone
A. Liquid silicone can be divided into one-component liquid silicone and two-component (or multi-component) liquid silicone according to the components. One-component liquid silicone will cure under certain conditions.
B.One-component liquid silicone will cure when exposed to moisture in the air, room temperature or high temperature. The higher the temperature, the faster the curing rate. As for two-component or multi-component silicone, the silicone adhesive and catalyst are stored in different components and generally do not cure.
C. Long-term storage of liquid silicone will lead to increased viscosity and poor operability.
D.The storage period of domestic liquid silicone is generally set to half a year, and the period of imported silicone is generally set to be one year from the factory to the time of use.
E.When the solid silicone is unopened and stored at room temperature, the shelf life of the product is 12 months from the date of birth. When storing, care should be taken not to store in a humid environment.
