What is silicone sealant?

Time : 2024-03-25 Hits : 4


Silicone sealant  is an adhesive usually used to form a watertight or airtight seal at the joint of two surfaces. In some cases,silicone sealant  is also called  silicone adhesive. The generic term "sealant" or "adhesive" is often used to refer to various products, such as  silicone sealants, as well as many other commonly used sealants and adhesives.

In general, the consistency of  silicone sealant  is liquid and gel when it is first used. After drying for a period of time under appropriate temperature and humidity conditions, it will cure into a stronger rubber-like substance. After curing to this state,silicone sealant  products are as durable and elastic as solid silicone rubber.

Silicone sealants  are usually sold in individual extrusion tubes for manual use, but some products are sold in larger rigid tubes, which are also popular. The latter is suitable for insertion into a convenient applicator (such as a sealant gun or dispensing syringe), which makes the glue effect cleaner.
