Why Are Silicone Feeding Sets Safe for Babies?

Is silicone safe for baby feeding set?

Silicone material is widely used in food-grade and medical-grade products, silicone tableware has emerged in recent years, especially in many countries in Europe and the United States, the baby silicone feeding set is in short supply, mainly because silicone material is more suitable for babies to do dinner plates.

Then we'll talk about what advantages silicone tableware has over other tableware that has just emerged in recent years.

  • Baby silicone feeding set is made of food-grade silicone after molding, safe, non-toxic and tasteless, high temperature resistant.
  • Silicone chemical stability is good, can withstand temperatures of 240 ℃ without deformation, -40 ℃ will not produce hardening phenomenon, baby silicone feeding set in the tableware can be placed in the microwave heating, hot water sterilization, after high temperature steaming, will not produce harmful substances.
  • Baby silicone feeding set is drop-resistant, feels good, and has a long service life.
  • Baby silicone tableware has a beautiful appearance and a wide variety of shapes and colors, which can increase the baby's motivation to eat.
  • Baby silicone feeding set compared to ceramic, plastic, hardware tableware, silicone tableware and temperature with the rapport, whether the food is cold or hot, can protect the temperature of the food itself, reduce the temperature change and loss, a period of time in the silicone bowl of food can also maintain the original temperature, even if the baby is slow to eat, the food can still remain warm.
  • The silicone material itself has different special characteristics from other materials to make it out of the baby silicone tableware has a stunning effect on the use of people. For example, the ground silent, tableware can be folded, knead, can be turned over, tucked in the pocket does not take up space, and will not adsorb oil stains. Its own desiccant role, not because of long-term storage of baby silicone tableware mold, quality change.

What is silicone made of ?

Silicone is derived from silica.

Silicone rubber is made of condensed hydroxyl capped silicone rubber as the base material, silicone oil containing hydroxyl hydrogen as the foaming agent, and vinyl platinum complex as the catalyst, which is foamed and vulcanized at room temperature.

It has high thermal stability, good heat insulation, insulation, moisture resistance, shock resistance, especially at high frequencies, good shock resistance, and is an ideal lightweight encapsulation material.

Food-grade silicone feeding set

Food-grade silicone is usually used to contact some of our life and food-related, such as common baby pacifiers, silicone tableware, food molds and so on, these will be used to reach food-grade standards to do, certification standards for FDA food-grade safety certification. The tableware in the baby silicone feeding set is made of food-grade silicone.

How to tell if the baby silicone feeding set is made of food-grade silicone?

  1. Ask the silicone product manufacturers to provide FDA or LFGB certification, through the U.S. FDA or LFGB certification of silicone tableware is in line with the food-grade silicone standards.
  2. smell the smell, the silicone products close to the nose to smell, ordinary silicone with a pungent smell, is not environmentally friendly silicone, and food-grade silicone is non-toxic tasteless, is environmentally friendly silicone.
  3. Pull hard, pinch the two ends of the baby silicone tableware, pull hard in the opposite direction, if pulled up white and can smell the pungent smell, it means that it is ordinary silicone, the opposite is food-grade silicone.
  4. Baking, in addition to special silicone, general ordinary silicone temperature resistance up to 150 degrees Celsius, while food-grade silicone can withstand high temperatures of 240 degrees Celsius, a short period of time can be up to 350 degrees Celsius.

Is silicone electrically conductive?

General silicone is not conductive, only conductive silicone can conduct electricity.

Conductive silica gel is a nickel-coated copper powder, silver powder and other conductive particles are evenly distributed in the silica gel, and the conductive particles are brought into contact through pressure to achieve good conductive properties. It is used in both military and commercial applications, and its main function is sealing and electromagnetic shielding.

Is silicone easy to generate static electricity?

Silicone products are easy to generate static electricity. But it is possible to intervene, starting from the source, that is, the raw material of silica gel, adding antistatic agent in the raw material, can effectively control the generation of static electricity, in the production, can be installed at the feed of the injection molding machine of silica gel raw material static elimination device, in the workshop installation of air humidifier, the same can prevent silica gel products from generating static electricity.

When static electricity, static electricity eliminator, ion wind elimination bar and other tools to eliminate static electricity on silicone products, these devices can generate a large number of positive and negative ions, to achieve the effect of eliminating static electricity, no need to worry about static electricity when using baby silicone tableware.

Is silicone waterproof?

Silicone is waterproof and it does not attract moisture. After cleaning the silicone product, it will stay dry quickly within seconds.

Final words

Silicone feeding kits have many benefits and are increasingly becoming the choice of mothers. Silicone itself has many advantages, and food-grade silicone is a safe choice, but it is also important to know how to identify food-grade silicone.
