Silicone elastomers are important materials for many application areas such as automotive, electric and electronics, gaskets, domestic appliances, fabric coatings (e.g. airbags), baby bottle teats, and medical devices. They are increasingly being used to substitute for organic rubbers, because of their advantageous properties, such as high and low temperature stability, inertness (no smell or taste), low toxicity, colorability and transparency, combined with good electrical properties. The hardness range is wide, from 10-80 Shore A.

Silicones have been in use in medical applications for over 30 years because of their long-term stability and biocompatibility. High gas permeability is a positive property in many medical devices; silicones have up to 400 times the permeability of butyl rubber at room temperature. They are also used in cosmetic applications, where their colorability and sensory properties are important (a soft, skin-like touch and appearance can be achieved).

These proceedings from Rapra’s first international conference on Silicone Elastomers will be of interest to rubber manufacturers and technologists, with a common interest in silicone elastomer materials, applications and technology.
