In the use of silicone mats, our application environment is different, so for some occasions, our application of silica gel and rubber is different, and the effects and characteristics are different. The silicone product is also one of the types of rubber products. The difference between silica gel and rubber is that it is toxic and non-toxic. The burning of the two silica gels does not cause open flames. When the smoke is burning, the smoke is white, and when the rubber burns, it is black smoke. The pungent is black and has a strong taste.
Today's silica gel products use non-toxic and environmentally friendly synthetic rubber and natural rubber. Synthetic rubbers include neoprene, butadiene rubber, styrene butadiene rubber, and the like. The structure of the natural rubber is a high polymer, and the rubber can be quickly recovered when it is deformed by the external force, and has good chemical stability and mechanical properties. It has good flexibility and can be used in some high and low temperature resistant applications. However, rubber products are not as good for low temperature applications as silicone products. In many respects, we now choose to replace the rubber products with silicone products.
