Silicone is an organic polymer that essentially comes from a mineral called silicon, which after a chemical process becomes silicone.
What does it mean that silicone is biocompatible?
It means that it is capable of interacting with biological systems.
What does pyrogenic mean?
It means that unlike other materials it cannot cause fever due to its contact with people.
What are halogens?
Pyrogenic is any agent that can produce fever, materials that in the event of a concussion, will produce toxic gases that are harmful to health, a hapyrogenic material is free of these and does not have that risk.
Can silicone be sterilized?
Yes , Sterilization is a technique by which we destroy any pathogenic and saprophytic life forms, including their forms of resistance. An object can be disinfected but not sterilized, while all sterilized material is disinfected , which makes silicone perfect for medical use among others.
When is silicone considered food grade?
When the silicone goes through a post-cure process to release peroxides, the silicone reaches food grade so as the word indicates, it can be in contact with any food.
What temperature does silicone withstand?
Silicone is resistant to extreme temperatures from -60ºC to 250ºC, although there are formulations with temporary thermal resistances of up to 275-350ºC.
Do you offer a variety of colors?
Yes , in the process of making silicone you can add any color.
Why have a silicone coated cable?
Copper cables are covered with silicone due to its resistance to the extreme temperatures to which these cables are usually exposed.
What is fiberglass silicone cable?
When a cable is in contact with surfaces or materials that are sharp or can tear the cable, the fiberglass coating gives it much greater mechanical resistance , so the cable is not in danger.
Does the catalog found on the web contain all the products you offer?
No, if you ask us for a quote with your specific requirements we can help you, the catalog is merely indicative , having the ability to deliver a wide variety of products.
Why is silicone the future?
It is a relatively recent material, whose application in various markets (medical, aeronautical food, rail, industrial, etc.) is gradually increasing, due to its great versatility and functionality.
