Silicones are polymers that include silicon together with carbon, hydrogen, oxygen, and sometimes other chemical elements.

Silicone at Wikipedia

Frederick Kipping was the chemist who pioneered the study of the organic compounds of silicon (Organosilicons), and invented the term silicone.


You know that Silicones play an important role to electronics manufacturing. When you want to Insulate a Power Device from the heatsink, Silpad is used in place of Mica. In some situations, where a higher temperature is expected, Mica or Alumina is inevitable, but these are fragile.

Silicone shrink sleeves, Silicone Insulating Sheaths or Surfaces, provide good electrical insulation and Thermal stability to survive in the industrial environment.
