What Are The Reasons For The Fracture Of Silicone Products?


Silicone products are used in various fields because of their comfortable feel, non-toxic, odorless, heat-resistant, non-slip and shock-absorbing, and long-term use. However, silicone products are not perfect either. When we use silicone products, there will be breakages, such as silicone products used in life, encountering sharp objects, multi-stage stretching, etc. Of course, in addition to the reasons for the fracture caused by the later use of silicone products, it may also be caused by the manufacturer's production. So, what are the reasons why silicone products are easy to break due to the production process?


1. Raw materials. The raw material is the key. The poor quality of the raw material will naturally affect its service life, while the use of high-quality silicone raw materials will have a relatively long service life. Therefore, manufacturers of silicone products should prepare high-quality raw materials and various auxiliary materials.


2. Technology. Product quality depends on the control of the manufacturing personnel, and the main cause of product cracking is that the processing temperature is too high and the curing time is too long to exceed the proper temperature range of the material, which makes the silicone product too brittle.


3. Trimming Process. The brittleness and cracks of the products are mainly due to poor quality, such as small damages, cracks in the trimming process, etc. Since silicone is a material that will open the mouth, if it is scratched with a sharp object, it will not be repaired, and due to long-term action, the tear opening of the silicone product will gradually increase, so we try to avoid sharp Blade contact to prevent damage to product structure and function.


4. The main structure of the product. Under normal circumstances, the silicone material will not have a right angle and an angle structure with a large taper. Even if there is, some R chamfers will be appropriately added to the corners of the silicone product mold to maintain roundness. If the hardness of the product material is required to be high, and the product has a certain oblique angle and right angle, it is easy to cause damage and tearing. The hardness determines the tensile strength of the product after molding, and the higher the hardness, the greater the brittleness of the product.


To sum up, the reasons that cause the silicone products to break easily are due to our improper use after purchase, and also due to the manufacturer's raw materials, technology, trimming process, and the main structure of the product during production. SUAN HOUSEWARE believes that when we buy silicone products, we should choose reliable manufacturers, and also pay attention to whether the products have subtle cracks. In the process of using after purchase, pay attention to avoid sharp objects, etc.
