The Difference between Silicone and Silica Gel

Oct 9, 2020

Resin usually refers to an organic polymer that has a softening or melting range after being heated, and has a tendency to flow under the action of external force when softened. It is a solid, semi-solid, or liquid organic polymer at room temperature. Broadly speaking, any polymer that can be used as a raw material for plastic products processing is called a resin.
Plastic refers to a material that uses resin (or directly polymerized with monomers during processing) as the main component, and additives such as plasticizers, fillers, lubricants, and colorants as auxiliary components, which can flow and shape during processing.
This shows that resin is one of the raw materials of plastic, and plastic is the finished product of resin.In other words, what is not molded is resin, and molded is plastic.Silicone resin is a kind of siloxane with a three-dimensional structure with highly dense cross-linking points. The form ranges from fluid to highly brittle solid. Most of the silica gel is made of silicone oil as the starting material, and cross-linking agents, catalysts, and reinforcing agents are added. The obtained modulus is relatively low and soft. But in some cases, silicone resin will be added to the silicone rubber as reinforcement or other functions. There is no obvious boundary between the two.
