Do you know silicone rubber is very similar with plastic?

Silicone and plastic, in some aspect, are congener.

First of all, plastic and silicone are polymers and both of them have a relationship with rubber.

As most people know that some PVC will release harmful substances and secrete elements, thus endangering safety issues. However, unlike plastic, as early as the 19th century, it has proven that silicone is environmentally friendly and non-toxic. In other words, silicone is more safe than plastic.

And most silicone product manufacturers, Wei Shun for instance, select safe food grade silicone rubber,  a material which has high transparency to produce silicone baking molds and baking tools on a purpose of offering safe and high quality products to clients.

Of course not.

Products we commonly used in our daily life, such as PU and PC material goods, are plastic products. Most of plastics are cheap and with light weight. In the factory production, extrusion technology, injection technology and blow molding process are adopted. The main advantages are wear resistant, oil resistance, good electrical insulation.

However, silicone rubber also is a material suits for extrusion technology, injection molding producing methods. Silicone products are wear resistance, oil resistance, transparency, good elasticity, good electrical insulation and good ductility. It has the advantages of stable size, chemical corrosion resistance, heat resistance and cold resistance, and also has the advantages of self-extinguishing property, flame retardancy and coloring property.
