Silicones Facilitate Improvements in Energy Efficiency 

Silicones are among the world’s most important and adaptable materials, used in thousands of products and applications. The backbone of silicon and oxygen atoms is the foundation of silicone chemistry and allows for the formation of siloxanes. Siloxanes are raw materials based on silicon, oxygen, hydrogen and carbon and are the critical building blocks used to make silicone polymers. Silicones can be made to resist moisture, chemicals, heat, cold, and ultraviolet radiation. Silicones display a host of unique properties that can lubricate, seal, bond, release, defoam, spread, and encapsulate. Because of these and other properties, silicone polymers are utilized in thousands of products in applications such as construction, consumer products, electronics, energy, healthcare, and transportation.

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.
