What is the difference between silicone and plastic?
Silicone rubber is a highly active absorbent material, insoluble in water and any solvents, non-toxic, odorless, chemically stable, and does not react with any substances except strong alkalis and hydrofluoric acid. Various types of silica gel form different microporous structures due to different manufacturing methods. The chemical composition and physical structure of silica gel determine that it has many other similar materials that are difficult to replace: high adsorption performance, good thermal stability, stable chemical properties, and high mechanical strength. According to its pore size, silica gel is divided into: macroporous silica gel, coarse pore silica gel, type B silica gel, and fine pore silica gel.
Plastic is a material with high-molecular-weight organic substances as the main component. It presents a solid shape when processing is completed, and can be shaped by flow during manufacturing and processing.
