Silicone sealant is an adhesive in liquid form. Generally, its appearance, touch and function are like gel. It is composed of a chemical composition different from other organic polymer binders. Unlike other adhesives, silicone can maintain elasticity and stability at high and low temperatures.
Silicone has many uses because of its strong adhesion and resistance to chemicals, moisture and weathering. One of the most common uses of silicone adhesives is for basic repairs around houses. For example, silicone sealant can be used to fill cracks, such as silicone based caulk. Sometimes people use it to level the floor of a home. Waterproof silicone sealant is an ideal material for repairing areas around sinks and other areas where water is often found. Although silicone is not a good material for load-bearing sealing, its strong adhesive properties are still needed in many construction work. Silicone sealants are usually used to bond plastic, metal, and glass surfaces.
Although all silicone sealants have the same basic adhesive properties, some sealants are designed for specific applications.
High temperature sealant
Those engaged in high-temperature work should consider purchasing high-temperature silicone sealants. Excellent high-temperature silicone sealant can withstand temperatures up to 600 degrees Fahrenheit. It can also resist aging, vibration and impact. It can also be used for some industrial purposes, such as sealing various gaskets, cable insulation and piping systems.
Electric grade self-leveling silicone
This silicone sealant does not contain acetic acid or other corrosive chemicals, and is highly resistant to weathering, moisture, sun and extreme temperatures. Therefore, it is an excellent adhesive for materials that are constantly exposed to elements. For example, this sealant can be used to bond metals, glass, wood, ceramics, or plastics together.
Multifunctional silicone sealant
If you are looking for an adhesive that can do all this, then you should choose a versatile commercial silicone sealant. Multi-purpose sealants should still be able to resist weathering, extreme temperatures, humidity, and vibration. In addition, it can be used on a variety of surfaces, including aluminum, ceramics, glass, metal, wood, plastic, granite.
