Silicone in the automotive industry

Silicone in the automotive industry

Due to the special properties of silicone, this material is becoming increasingly relevant for the automotive industry, both for new and existing applications. Compared to other elastomers, silicone has a higher temperature resistance and retains its mechanical properties over a wider temperature range. Fire resistance is excellent. Due to the increased temperatures in the engine compartment, silicone is increasingly being used as an insulator for cables. The excellent UV and Ozone resistance guarantee a long-lasting use without large optical aging characteristics. In contrast to other elastomers, silicone can be colored in all possible color variants, and thus offers a variety of possible applications in the automotive sector in addition to its pleasant haptics.
