Silicones Automotive Applications 

Silicones help deliver the strength, adhesion, durability and fuel efficiency needed for vehicles to operate smoothly in extreme temperatures. For example, they protect electronic components from extreme heat, moisture, salt, corrosion, contamination and movement. And, silicones used as textile coatings and sealants in airbags prevent the bag from rupturing from the extreme pressure exerted by the exploding gas. Silicones also extend service life and provide load bearing and protective shock absorption qualities, such as in shock absorbers and inflatable curtain coatings and lubricants to help provide cushioning.

American Chemistry Council

The American Chemistry Council’s mission is to advocate for the people, policy, and products of chemistry that make the United States the global leader in innovation and manufacturing. To achieve this, we: Champion science-based policy solutions across all levels of government; Drive continuous performance improvement to protect employees and communities through Responsible Care®; Foster the development of sustainability practices throughout ACC member companies; and Communicate authentically with communities about challenges and solutions for a safer, healthier and more sustainable way of life. Our vision is a world made better by chemistry, where people live happier, healthier, and more prosperous lives, safely and sustainably—for generations to come.
