They can be mixed with a wide range of chemicals such as phenyl, polyether and ethyl. Furthermore, silicone coatings are formed in compound formulations such as silicone alkyds, silicone acrylics, silicone polyesters, waterborne silicone and high solids silicone. These compounds provide different characteristics to the silicone coatings. Methyl silicone offers better gloss and higher UV resistance while phenyl silicone offers better protection against corrosion and elevated temperatures. Waterborne and high solids silicone coatings comply with VOC regulations as there is very less amount or no solvent available in it. Silicone coatings are used in various enduser industries such as marine, building & construction, Industrial machineries, medical & healthcare devices, architectural and automotive among others. Silicone coatings are used in marine industry as foul release coatings.
These coatings offer better protection against algae, tubeworms, barnacles and other marine organisms. These factors increases drag on the hull thus increasing the fuel consumption of ships by up to . Silicone coatings prevent growth of microorganisms on the substrate and increases efficiency of the ship. One of the major applications of silicone coatings is in roofing. Silicone coatings provide excellent dirt, weathering and chemical resistance properties. Moreover, it increases life of roofing and enhances ponding water protection. Silicone coatings decreases roof surface temperature thus helps in reducing energy costs. Polyester based silicone coatings are used in coils and cookware as they offer better protection against higher temperature levels. Silicone alkyd coatings are used applied on tanks, steel and architectural structures. Silicone alkyd coatings enhance durability and life cycle of the products. Due to its ability to sustain elevated temperature levels, silicone coatings are used in high temperature equipment that find applications in electronics and semiconductor industry.
