Silicone is a high performance product that is used in a variety of industries including health and medical, right through to aerospace and construction. A Silicone Moulding UK company, such as https://www.meadex.co.uk/silicone-moulding/ will produce a large number of silicone items each day. The process of silicone moulding allows for large production of products as well as smaller runs of bespoke lines.

The reason why silicone is being used in so many products is due to the fact that it is incredibly flexible, water resistant, resistant to extremes of temperature and UV light as well as being found in a liquid, solid, rubber, oil and grease based state.

Silicone is used in the application of makeup, on sponges that spread foundation and other liquids. It enhances the way that the liquid is spread across the face, without the risk of allergic reactions that can occur with latex makeup applicators. It is used in construction as a sealant in bathrooms and around windows and doors to make these areas watertight and damp proof. It is also used in this manner around the kitchen to seal appliances and to create a watertight seal around sinks and worktops.
