Silicone industry trends forecast

Writer:Hong Date:2013-04-24

The silicone is an emerging high-tech materials, initially applied only to the field of aviation, military, and now widely applied to various fields of electrical and electronics, textile, automobile, machinery, leather, paper, metal, paint, pharmaceutical and medical. The industry believes that China silicone market demand is huge, and the recent shortage of domestic production. Some large multinational corporations have production and R & D center in China as domestic private capital are also actively involved in this field of new materials.
Organic silicon industry in China rely heavily on imported experts predict that the next three to five years, it will be important stage in the development of the silicone industry in China. By 2010, China will overtake the U.S. as the world's largest silicone producer and consumer countries. However, now China's silicone is mainly dependent on imports. According to statistics, from 2000 to 2006, China's market organic silicon characterization consumption of an average annual growth rate of 30%, more than two-thirds of which are dependent on imports. Next few years, the Chinese organic silicon market will continue in short supply, to rely heavily on imports. "Group CEO of Momentive Performance Materials segment Ying told reporters.
The industry believes that our silicone dependence on imports, mainly due to the limitations of the domestic technology level. United Securities analyst, said Xiao Hui, the domestic over the years technology has improved, but still a big gap in the material consumption, energy consumption, level of technology, especially the quality is hard to break.
Multinational pegged to see the huge demand of China silicone market, multinational giants have come to explore the market. Industry leader Dow Corning in 1973, began to enter the Chinese market, so far the total investment in China has more than 40 million U.S. dollars to build a complete industrial chain, completed the strategic layout in China.
The world's second largest organic silicon business Momentive has said that a joint venture with Zhejiang Xinan Chemical Industrial Group, invested nearly $ 100 million building an annual output of 100,000 tons of organic silicon monomer project. Previously, Momentive has four organic silicon production plant in Shanghai, Shenzhen, Nantong.
Now, in the five giants dominate the global organic silicon Bacheng market, the Big Four has the layout of China. To industry sources, the multinational giants not only the Chinese market on the most important position, and let the R & D work as close as possible to gain an advantage. It is reported that the Momentive loaded with the world's fourth R & D center in Shanghai. Small, Duan Ying explained: "Only the R & D centers in China, in order to better close to the customer, shortening the industry chain to respond quickly to market."
Or inflection point despite the silicone market is still in short supply, but industry experts believe that 2010 may be the industry inflection point, the supply exceeds demand.
Insiders pointed out that the gross profit of some silicone-based products in 30-50%. Silicone as a new material have many advantages relative to traditional materials, is widely used. The temptation of high profits, some private enterprises have started the construction of organic silicon production line.
It is reported that in addition to domestic original Xingxincailiao, Xinan Chemical, Jilin three companies, the past two years, new organic silicon monomer production plant about 15 sets. Zhejiang, Jiangsu, Shandong, Shanxi, competing launched a new project of silicone. In addition, multinationals in China are competing to expand capacity. The completion of these projects will directly affect the relationship between supply and demand in the future on the market.
Analysis of the industry if the industry inflection point in 2010, who as early as possible to expand production capacity, who will be able to take a larger market. However, the organic silicon industry is a capital-and technology-intensive industries, a higher threshold, and high energy consumption, easy to pollute. At present, China does not lack of funds, lack of technical

The safety performance of the silicone

Silicone main component is silicon dioxide, chemically stable, and does not burn. Silica gel is an amorphous silica to control dust in the workshop content is not greater than 10 mg / cubic meter, the need to strengthen the exhaust, wear a mask operation. Silica gel has a strong adsorption capacity of human skin to produce dry, therefore, the operation should wear good clothes. If the silicone into the eyes, required copious amounts of water and seek medical treatment. Blue silicone because it contains a small amount of cobalt chloride, toxic, and should be avoided and food contact and inhalation of the mouth, such as the occurrence of poisoning should immediately seek medical treatment. Silica gel in the course of adsorption of water vapor in the media or other organic substances, the adsorption capacity decreased, can be reused after regeneration.

Silicone regenerative It should be noted that problem

A. drying regeneration should be careful to take a gradual increase in temperature, in order to avoid severe drying caused by the colloidal particle burst, reducing the recovery rate.
B. silicone roasting regeneration temperature can cause changes in the silica gel pore structure significantly reduce the adsorption effect, affecting the value in use. For blue gel indicator, silica gel, desorption regeneration temperature should be not more than 120 ° C, otherwise they will be the color reagent oxidation gradually lose their color effects.
C. The regenerated silica gel generally should be sieved to remove fine particles, so that uniform particles.

Storage and packing
Silica gel has a strong capacity to absorb moisture and should therefore be stored in a dry place, have a shelf between the packaging with the ground. Packaging steel drums, fiber drum, carton, plastic bottles, polyethylene plastic bags, flexible container bags. Specific packaging specifications, see the classification of product descriptions.
Rain, moisture, and exposure should be avoided during transport.
