Silicones: The highest demanded and fastest-growing polymer in the waterproof adhesives and sealants market

Silicones are versatile polymers with excellent adhesion properties of that come from their chemical structure. This allows them to bind together materials that were traditionally difficult to unite such as glass, metal, and stone. Also, silicones are highly water resistant as they block the passage of water or any liquid and do not degrade the humidity. Therefore silicone-based adhesives and sealants are used for applications such as aquaria, underwater respiratory devices, swimming pool construction, and nautical electronic equipment. Thus the market for silicones is projected to be the fastest-growing chemistry and accounts for the major share of the overall waterproof adhesives and sealants market
