Lubricant form is expected to gain significance in textile sector owing to its heat stability and minimize adhesion of thermoplastic fiber to spinneret, thereby preventing risk of unstable production. Additional benefits include foam control, softening, lubrication, and hydrophobic coatings, thus enhancing fiber resilience to withstand multiple wash cycles.
Transportation equipment are under continuous exposure to physical and chemical attacks and require durable exteriors to minimize maintenance and repair costs. Silicone-based products are used in automotives, ocean vessels, and spacecrafts to increase exterior resilience towards harsh weather conditions.
While silicone rubber provides superior wear life and traction to the tires, coatings and adhesives enhance the components of transport equipment including airbags, vent ducts, and joints. Additional benefits include improved resistance to heat and cold, salt, abrasion, wind, rain, and ultraviolet radiation.
