Why are silicone products aging?

- Nov 17, 2018-

Although silicone products have various advantages, but they will age after a long time of use, why are silicone products aging? Let's discuss this issue briefly.


   The viscosity of silica gel is higher than that of many others, but silica gel, like other rubbers, also undergoes aging. The performance of silica gel has changed greatly due to the breakage of its internal molecular chain.


For rubber and plastic products, the most harmful to silicone products is ultraviolet light, which can directly cause the breakage of rubber molecular chains. This is because rubber and plastic products can absorb light energy to produce free molecules in rubber.
