Smart touch switch application have come to occupy increasingly important roles in everyone’s lives, from the supermarket to the kitchen, the school to the car. People use these smart touch switch devices for all manner of tasks and enhanced work efficiency.
A touch switch is a type of switch that only has to be touched by an object to operate. It is used in many lamps and wall switches that have a metal exterior as well as on public computer terminals. Now, Compo-SiL® is successfully bound to touch switch interfaces. It will be in products and devices as various as automotive dashboards to provide new means of interaction and control.
With the continuous advancement in technology along with civil, marine, railway, and aviation engineering, modern
transportation has become faster, more comfortable, reliable, and efficient. It has not only increased the flow of passengers
worldwide but also raised their expectations in terms of health, comfort, and security, which eventually demands the materials
to perform better. Compo-SiL® based silicone products can be seen as modern futuristic raw materials for the transportation
industries, and could help lengthen the lifetime of the vehicles. Because it has already been proven to be an apt material with
properties like high durability, non toxicity, flame retardant, and resistance to UV rays, ozone, extreme temperature variations,
particular chemicals, and moisture. As silicone parts and products are relatively light weight, thus contribute to vehicle weight
reduction, which results in enhancing fuel efficiency and lowering pollutants emissions (mainly CO2).
Silicone technology has revolutionized the textile industry starting from creating functional fabrics, intelligent textiles to textile
manufacturing process. It has always been one of the main factors to satisfy the demands and requirements of the customers
in sports and apparel applications. Due to its innovative and sustainable material, now matériO online platform can be found Compo-SiL® material.
Even though liquid silicone process is widely used in the textile industry, but it comes with
many drawbacks like material handling and liquid silicone penetrating into textile fabric and consequently altering its
properties. Nevertherless, Compo-SiL®, a patented technology by General Silicones, not only overcomes these drawbacks,
but also delivers extra values added through roll-to-roll process and textile binding capability for the same demands.
By medical technology developing, the range of healthcare and baby care application innovation rise substantially. People severe concern and is continuously rising pressure on hospitals to find, better, innovative, sustainable and human-friendly solutions. Now, silicone material Compo-SiL® comes with various benefits along with great properties. Silicones wonderful antimicrobial and chemical resistance properties make them a perfect fit for the healthcare and baby care industry.
Consumers in this new changing world opt for higher quality, more durable and long-lasting products rather than their inferior
counterparts. As they have been more cautious about health and safety, the raw materials must be environment friendly,
biocompatible and sustainable along with the above mentioned properties. Compo-SiL® based silicone products meet all the
requirements for the same demand.
Silicone is one of the material of choice, and widely recognized in large scale application industries like health care,
electronics, automotive, aerospace, industrial assembly, construction, textile, consumer, etc. However, there was a long-time
key problem with cured silicone surface showing high inertness to bind with any other functional materials, except for using
adhesive or plasma bonding.
Following an extensive research and innovative patented technology, General Silicones has solved the key problem
mentioned by developing Compo-SiL® substrate, which provides a dual solution for printability and laminability at a same time.
Compo-SiL® is an innovative substrate with diverse applications that having silicone along with a printable and laminable.
Compo-SiL® flame retardant laminated silicone sheet can be roll-to-roll bonded with different fabrics by PUR and adhesives. It fulfills the UL 94-V0 flammability standard requirement and is one of the best choices for safety protection materials through innovative patented technology. Fire safety in many applications is highly required. It is mandatory to ensure the emergency systems should be working properly like alarms, emergency lighting, and automatic doors on escape doors. Flame retardant silicone rubber is the best solution for it.
When Compo-SiL® is exposed to fire, its material will become a hard ceramic which can withstand a very high temperature, and come together with electrically insulating property. Furthermore, it's eco-friendly to the environment after burning as it turns into non-toxic byproducts, such as carbon dioxide, water vapor, and silica.
