The difference between silicone wire and rubber wire

2022-07-08

Silicone wire and rubber wire are two kinds of wires that we usually use, but these two kinds of wires are easily mistaken for the same kind of wire. In fact, there is a big difference in performance and material of the two. Now let ZHONGZHEN NEW ENERGY Factory introduce the difference between these two kinds of wires.

 

The difference between silicone wire and rubber wire

 

Silicone high-temperature wire has excellent high temperature resistance and low temperature resistance, excellent high pressure resistance, aging resistance, high temperature resistance, acid and alkali resistance, and long service life. Instructions for use: The insulation is made of silicone rubber, and the colors are: white, red, black, blue, green, yellow, translucent, etc. Long service life, soft and easy to install. Widely used in lighting fixtures, household appliances, electric heating appliances, instrumentation, motor lead wires and high temperature wire environments such as electronics, lamps and dyeing tools. The silicone wire uses silicone rubber as the insulating material, and the silicone rubber is a one-component room temperature vulcanized liquid rubber. Once exposed to air, the silane monomers in it condense to form a network structure, the system is cross-linked, cannot be melted and dissolved, is elastic, becomes rubbery, and adheres to objects at the same time. Its thermal conductivity is slightly higher than that of regular rubber, and once cured, it is difficult to separate bonded objects.

 

The insulating material of the rubber wire is rubber, which is a high-elastic polymer compound. Includes unvulcanized and vulcanized varieties. It can be divided into two categories: natural rubber and synthetic rubber. Natural rubber is processed from latex obtained from rubber plants. Synthetic rubber is obtained by polymerization or polycondensation of monomers. Unvulcanized rubber is commonly known as raw rubber or raw rubber. The vulcanized rubber is called vulcanized rubber, commonly known as cooked rubber or rubber. Widely used in the manufacture of tires, hoses, tapes, insulating materials, rubber shoes, and other rubber products.

 

The rubber wire has strong flexibility, sun protection, waterproof, oil resistance, temperature resistance (90 degrees), cold resistance (-40 degrees), anti-ultraviolet (UV), anti-aging and flame retardant. The life expectancy is generally at least ten or eight years. It is suitable for outdoor lighting and household appliances with a little heat. The epidermis is rough, not smooth, such as nubuck. The main features of the silicone wire are high temperature resistance, up to about 180 degrees, low temperature resistance up to -65 degrees, smooth skin and very Extra Soft Silicone Wire quality. It is suitable for use on products with high heat generation, most of which are used inside products (automotive lighting, high-power lighting, medical machinery).
