It is mostly used for food grade or medical grade products. For example, rhinoplasty and breast implants are made of silicone, which is not easily deformed, and the silicone baby products that have been widely recognized in recent years are also made of silicone.

Silicone vs Rubber

Natural rubber is mainly derived from the latex produced by the rubber tree and processed into synthetic rubber, and the most important feature of rubber is its plasticity and high elasticity. In the environment of room temperature, it can change the state of the object. Rubber is mainly used in, for example, our life rain shoes, warm water bags, elastic bands, etc. are rubber, as well as the usual everywhere car tires are made of rubber, because rubber has plasticity and good elasticity, after the deformation of tires, can be quickly recovered, and wear resistance, but also to reduce the vibration when running.
