Prediction of the Development Advantages of the Domestic Silicone Products Industry
Organic silicone is an emerging high-tech material that was initially only used in the fields of aviation and military industry. Nowadays, it is widely used in various fields such as electronics and electronics, textiles, automobiles, machinery, leather and paper, metals, paint, medicine and medical treatment. Industry insiders believe that the demand for organic silicone in China is huge, and the domestic production has been in short supply recently. At present, some large multinational groups have established production and research and development centers in China, and domestic private capital is also actively investing in this new material field.
Silicone rubber has excellent high and low temperature resistance, weather resistance, electrical insulation, and physiological inertness, and is widely used in industries such as aerospace, electronics and electronics, construction, automotive machinery, as well as in various fields such as healthcare and daily life. The main application forms of silicone rubber are various vulcanized products, including various rubber plates, gaskets, cups, valves, films, shock absorbers, electrical plugs, rubber rollers, insulation sleeves of potentiometer, waveguide tubes, protective sleeves and keys of silicone mobile phones in molded products; Various rubber hoses, strips, ropes, wire and cable sheaths, etc. used in extruded products. Sealing gaskets, membranes, isolation cloths, etc. in adhesive tape products.
China's organic silicone industry heavily relies on imported experts, and it is expected that the next three to five years will be an important stage for the development of China's organic silicone industry. By 2010, China will surpass the United States as the world's largest producer and consumer of organic silicone. However, currently, China's organic silicone mainly relies on imports. According to statistics, from 2000 to 2006, the characteristic consumption of organic silicone in the Chinese market increased at an average annual rate of 30%, with over two-thirds relying on imports. In the coming years, the Chinese organic silicone market will still be in a state of oversupply, relying heavily on imports, "Duan Xiaoying, President of Maitu High tech Materials Group, told reporters.
Industry insiders believe that China's dependence on imports of organic silicone is mainly limited by domestic technological level. Xiao Hui, an analyst at United Securities, said that although technology has improved in China over the years, there are still significant gaps in material consumption, energy consumption, and technological level, especially in terms of quality.
Multinational corporations are keeping a close eye on China. Due to the huge demand for organic silicone in the Chinese market, multinational giants have come to China to explore the market. Kangning, an old industry avenue, began entering the Chinese market as early as 1973. So far, its total investment in China has exceeded 40 million US dollars, and it has built a complete industrial chain and completed its strategic layout in China.
Maitu, the world's second largest organic silicone enterprise, recently announced the establishment of a joint venture with Zhejiang Xin'an Chemical Group, with an investment of nearly 100 million US dollars, to build an annual production of 100000 tons of organic silicone monomer project. Previously, Maitu had established four organic silicone production plants in Shanghai, Shenzhen, Nantong, and other places.
Nowadays, among the five giants that monopolize 80% of the global organic silicone market, the four largest
Silica gel is a kind of amorphous silicon dioxide, and the dust content in the workshop should be controlled to be no more than 10 mg/m3. Air exhaust should be strengthened, and masks should be worn during operation.
The superior performance, coupled with the fact that silicone is a non petroleum product and does not rely on increasingly scarce petroleum resources, has made silicone products a substitute for similar plastic products.
Ratio of silicone vulcanizing agent. Silicone rubber is the most common two component vulcanized silicone rubber.
Viscosity. Explanation of technological terms: The volume characteristic of a liquid, quasi liquid, or quasi solid substance that resists flow, that is, the internal friction or flow resistance between molecules when flowing under external forces. Usually, viscosity is directly proportional to hardness.
