Silicone Chemistry Infographics

Silicones are produced by reacting silicon—one of the earth's most common elements- with methyl chloride and further reaction with water which removes the chlorine atom. This reaction produces polymers that are resistant to high and low temperatures and are used in thousands of products in applications including health care, transportation (e.g., aerospace and automotive), textiles, electronics, and construction.
