Transportation

Other Uses

As modern means of transport become more reliable and more efficient, it becomes increasingly important that materials used in them perform well even under extreme conditions. For example, new technologies have led to higher temperatures and smaller parts in engines. Because silicones can withstand exposure to very high temperatures, salt, rain and sun rays, they are used to protect and insulate engine parts to improve vehicle safety throughout their lifetime.
