Hsinchu, Taiwan, January 26, 2021 - Experienced silicone product maker, General Silicones (GS), is proud to share how its Compo-SiL® technology creates a new method for silicone printing. So far, printing on silicone is constrained by the low wettability of silicone. Only silicone-based inks adhere to silicone base material without additional costly pre-treatment methods. Even so, printing is limited and constrained by silicone ink's properties and technical challenges.
Some manufacturers chose to use electrical corona discharge, flame treatment, cold gas plasma, and ultraviolet irradiation as pre-treatment methods to bond with silicone. Those treatments are hard to control; excessive oxidization can affect downstream product assembly and aging of the treated surfaces. The costs and limitations of such treatments make them only a viable solution under specific circumstances.
Hsinchu, Taiwan, January14, 2021 - Experienced silicone product maker, General Silicones (GS), announces a solution for using hot-melt adhesives (HMA) with silicone rubber sheets during factory mass production. Over the past decades, the use of hot melt adhesives grew in importance for product assembly. A growing number of industries are relying on HMA. Industry forecasts project continuous growth of HMA use for the coming years.
Hsinchu, Taiwan, December29, 2020 - Experienced silicone product maker, General Silicones (GS), confirms the compatibility of its Compo-SiL® silicone rubber sheets with standard PUR adhesives. Many unique silicone properties, such as UV stability, usability in high and low temperature, electric discharge safety, make it an ideal material. But the extreme difficulty of bonding cured silicone to other surfaces prevents silicone from broader use.
Hsinchu, Taiwan, December 17, 2020 - General Silicones Co. Ltd. (GS), based in Hsinchu City, Taiwan, acknowledges that manufacturers are now looking for plastic alternatives to improve the sustainability of their product. Thanks to the fact that silicone is a sustainable alternative to plastic, these companies can now take advantage of silicone's well-known benefits as an eco-friendly alternative material. Compo-SiL® by General Silicones are silicone sheets with a thin modified layer made of Polyurethane (PU). The PU modified layer is easy to apply using a diverse selection of adhesives, allowing the quick and easy integration of Compo-SiL® to existing mass production processes.
Hsinchu, Taiwan, December 03, 2020 - General Silicones Co., Ltd. (GS), a company based in Hsinchu City, Taiwan, is pleased to announce the celebration of their 50th anniversary in the industry. GS was founded in 1970 and is not just a major distributor of silicone materials, but also of an active manufacturer of silicone products with international certifications. A key example of GS focusing on contributing to a more environmentally sustainable society is Compo-SiL® technology for improving silicone adhesion and bonding using sustainable technology.
