Silicone technology lies at the heart of almost all devices that make life easier including smartphones, computers, wearable fitness trackers and cardio-monitoring devices, and sport watches.

Silicones seal, bond and encapsulate everything from highly sensitive circuits and microprocessors to semiconductors. They help electronic components remain protected from extreme heat, moisture, salt, corrosion, contamination and movement in computers, appliances, cars and airplanes. Because of silicones’ protective properties, many technological and electronic innovations in electronic devices, components, assemblies and systems are possible.

Keypads, keyboards and copier rollers are made with silicones—as are hard coating housings for computers, facsimile machines, telephones and home entertainment equipment.
