What Are The Precautions For Producing Silicone Pads?

- Nov 20, 2020-

Everyone knows that silicone pads have excellent insulation and anti-slip properties, and have good heat insulation properties. Good quality silicone mats have a longer service life, convenient and more affordable. When choosing a pad, you must choose a thicker silicone pad As a silicone product factory, what should you pay attention to when producing silicone pads?


First, let’s understand the basic characteristics of silicone placemat.  Silicone is a highly absorbent material, insoluble in water and other solvents. Its chemical formula is mSiO2·nH2O. The chemical composition and physical structure of silicone determine the difference between it and the general Many special features of silica gel, for example, some silicone has much higher adsorption than ordinary silicone.

Silicone place mats can be used between -40°C and 230°C under normal conditions! Widely used in furniture, electronics, industry and other industries! Silicone pads have their own characteristics, and the products can be divided into three categories: silicone mat, thermally conductive silicone cup mat and thermal insulation silicone pads.

Silicone gaskets are mainly used in industrial machinery and equipment. Thermally conductive silicone drink coasters and thermal insulation silicone pads are used in the electronics industry and household goods.

In fact, there are many kinds of silicone beer mat, but most of the silicone placemats are produced by molding. Molded production does have many advantages, but it does not mean that there are no disadvantages. When a thinner silicone pad is produced according to customer requirements, some manufacturers There is no way to put it down. Normally, according to the specifications of the mold industry, silicone products with a thickness of less than 1.0mm cannot be produced smoothly.

Because the self-removal of the mold edge has reached 1.0mm, if the glue position in the middle is thinner than the glue position on the side, it is technically impossible to achieve. However, it does not rule out that some silicone product manufacturers do have their own unique production processes. Some can achieve a thickness of 0.5mm, and some can even achieve a thickness of 0.3mm. This depends on the technology of the silicone product factory.
