Silicone's versatility gives it numerous applications within the automotive sector. The most prized characteristics according to the application are as follows: Electrics: insulating and conductive properties. Electronics: water-tightness, resistance to temperature and good ageing. Passenger compartment: flexibility, ease of colouring and excellent adhesion to different materials. Bodywork: UV resistance, water-tightness and flexibility when cold. Engine: optimal adhesion, resistance to high pressures and temperatures and low compression set.
