  • Water-resistant:  Silicone coatings do not allow water to pass through them, and it also does not allow any moisture to evaporate.

  • Good dielectric strength: Silicone coatings resist high voltage arching, electric short circuits, and static discharge, making them a popular choice in electrical circuits and systems.

  • Flexible: They have the ability to expand and contract along with the substrate making them an optimum choice for applications like roofs.

  • Safe:  Silicone compounds have low toxicity and do not emit VOCs or volatile organic compounds.

Furthermore, it increases tensile strength and prevents fabrics and textiles from tearing. As a versatile coating, silicone can also be used for coating leather.

  • Roof coatings: Silicone coating for roofs are very popular because they protect the roof surface from extreme weather conditions. For roof coatings, they are made of oxygen and silicon. It helps to extend the life of a roof and helps to avoid damage from extreme weather.

  • Metals and hot surfaces:  Silicone is known to withstand very high temperatures and also has anti-corrosion coatings. It can withstand sudden temperature changes up to 400 degrees C and is chemical-resistant, moisture-resistant, and water-resistant. Thus silicone coating is used in hot gas pipes, heating furnaces, exhaust pipes, chimneys, blast furnaces, and hot blast stoves to name a few.
