Silicone
Apr 07, 2018

    Silicone is a highly cross-linked network of polyorganosiloxanes, typically methyltrichlorosilane, dimethyldichlorosilane, phenyltrichlorosilane, diphenyldichlorosilane or methylphenyl. Various mixtures of dichlorosilane are hydrolyzed at a relatively low temperature in the presence of an organic solvent such as toluene to obtain an acidic hydrolysate. The initial product of the hydrolysis is a mixture of cyclic, linear and cross-linked polymers, usually also containing a considerable number of hydroxyl groups. The hydrolyzate is  washed with water to remove the acid, and the neutral initial polycondensate is thermally oxidized in air or further polycondensed in the presence of a catalyst to form a highly crosslinked three-dimensional network structure.

    Silicone is a thermosetting plastic and one of its most prominent properties is excellent thermal oxidation stability. After heating at 250°C for 24 hours, the weight loss of silicone resin was only 2 to 8%. Another outstanding property of silicone is its excellent electrical insulation, which maintains its good insulation properties over a wide temperature and frequency range.

    In view of the above characteristics, the silicone resin is mainly used as an insulating paint (including varnish, enamel, color paint, impregnating paint, etc.) impregnated H-class motor and transformer coil, and used to impregnate the glass cloth, glass cloth and asbestos cloth into a motor sleeve Pipes, electrical insulation windings and so on. The use of silicone insulating varnish bonded mica can produce a large area of mica sheet insulation material for the main insulation of high voltage motors. In addition, silicone can also be used as anti-corrosion coatings for heat and weather resistance, metal protective coatings, water and moisture resistant coatings for building construction, release agents, adhesives, and secondary processing into silicone plastics for the electronics, electrical and defense industries. As an insulating material for semiconductor packaging materials and electronic and electrical parts and components.

    Silicone resins can be roughly divided into organic silicon insulating paints, organic silicon paints, organic silicon plastics, and silicone adhesives according to their main uses and cross-linking methods.
