Generally speaking, silicone is divided into organic silicone and inorganic silicone according to its properties and components.
Inorganic silicone is a highly active adsorption material, which is usually used to react with sodium silicate and sulfuric acid, and is produced by a series of post-processing processes such as aging and acid bubble.Inorganic silicone is a amorphous substance whose chemical molecular formula is mSiO2.NH2O.Insoluble in water and any solvent, non-toxic and tasteless, chemical properties stable, except strong alkali, hydrofluoric acid not react with any material.
According to its main application,inorganic silicone can be divided into beer silicone, variable pressure adsorption silicone, medical silicone, discolored silicone, silicone desiccant,silicone opening agent and silicone for toothpaste,etc.
Organic silicone is a kind of organic silicon compounds, refers to contain Si - C keys, and at least one organic group is directly linked to the silicon atoms compounds, usually those with oxygen, sulfur, nitrogen, etc organic base connected to the silicon atoms compounds as referred as organic silicon compounds
Organic silicon is mainly divided into four categories: silicone rubber, silicon resin, silicone oil and silicone coupling agent.
