Silicone rubber was first synthesized by the United States with ferric chloride as catalyst. 1945, the advent of silicone rubber products. 1948, the use of high specific surface area of fumed silica reinforced silicone rubber developed successfully, so that the performance of silicone rubber jumped to a practical stage, laying the foundation of modern silicone rubber production technology.
From two methyl two chloro-silane synthesis began to produce silicone rubber in the countries of the United States. Russia, Germany, Japan, Korea and China. The industrialization of China Silicone rubber began in 1957, a number of research institutes and enterprises have developed a variety of silicone rubber. By the end of 2003, China's silicone rubber production capacity of 135,000 tons, of which 100,000 tons of high-temperature rubber.
