Do you know what Is Food Grade Silicone

Introduction

Food-grade silicone is an inorganic, polymer colloidal material that is made by condensing silicic acid. Silica gel has a pore size of about 8-10nm, a specific surface area of 300-500m2/g, and a hydrophilic surface that strongly absorbs water. It can absorb more than 80%-100% of its weight in water under high humidity. Due to this property, food-grade silica gel is commonly used as an external desiccant for food and medicine. It is refined and sterilized for edible use, which means that it can be mixed with food and medicine to ensure that it remains dry. Moreover, it can be consumed safely without any toxic side effects on the human body.

 

Features

1. non-toxic, odorless, high transparency, no yellowing.

2. soft, elastic, and resistant to kinking without deformation.

3. non-cracking, long service life, cold and high-temperature resistance.

4. with higher tear strength and superior electrical properties.

This material offers several advantages such as high transparency, tastelessness, and absence of yellowing and frost spraying. It effectively addresses issues like frost spraying on black hoses and the fading of blue products. Additionally, it is soft, highly tear-resistant, and provides excellent insulation, wear resistance, high-temperature resistance, and flame retardancy. It is also environmentally friendly, exhibits stable performance, and is characterized by tensile strength and anti-aging properties.

 

Use

Food-grade silicone is a common material used in various industries such as mechanical products, machinery, electrical appliances, and others. It is used for making coffee pots, water heaters, toasters, disinfection cabinets, drinking fountains, boiling water pots, irons, rice cookers, deep fryers, fruit pulp machines, combustion appliances, and more. It is also used to manufacture beauty and hairdressing equipment, protective covers for lighting products, and fireproof silicone tubes. The fireproof silicone tube has flame-resistant, high-pressure, high-temperature, and environmental protection characteristics. It is mainly used for food remold, kitchen utensils, chocolate molding, candy molding, precision casting, carbon fiber composite materials, food cake molding, craft ceramics, printing, human organ cloning, household appliances, lighting fixture products, and silicone pacifiers, among others.

 

Performance

1, food-grade silica gel is an environmentally friendly silicone, non-toxic, odorless, and degradable.

2, soft, good elasticity, kink resistance, and no deformation.

3, no cracking, long service life, cold and high-temperature resistance.

4, with higher tear strength and superior electrical properties.

5, No yellowing when placed at room temperature, no frosting, no white spitting, no fading, no scale, and no odor in water for a long time.
