Science of Silicone

Plastic in the kitchen can

Plastic in the kitchen can be scary, but there's a better way! Silicone is a synthetic rubber that has an incredibly high melting point, perfect for cookware. Here's the science behind the material.

Silicon is a semiconductor, and thats why is it so special in electronics...not a conductor.

Vincent M

1:23...I don't believe that's technically true. He states that Silicon is one of the most abundant elements we have yet...it's important to note that Silicon (Si) is very rare to find in it's natural state on earth. Silicon or Silicon Metal is formed by taking SILICA and heating it at very high temperatures (over 1800 degrees Celsius). But who cares! :)


Good to know silicone is synthetic rubber, can withstand extreme heat.
Without knowing what it is, I used hot/cold pad to relieve muscle pain, and checked out yesterday some beautiful watches with silicone bands.

Many thanks, been searching for "what can i use instead of plastic bottles?" for a while now, and I think this has helped. Have you heard people talk about - Denadison Simplified Dominance - (Have a quick look on google cant remember the place now )? It is an awesome one of a kind guide for discovering how to find a great alternative to single use plastic minus the hard work. Ive heard some pretty good things about it and my friend got excellent success with it.

Silicon is a bad conductor. It can be used on electronic devices because it can be used to make semiconductors. its not used for being a good conductor. when good conductors are needed in electronics they use gold.

What Is Silicone And Its Uses? (Video 1)

6 108 views | 28 Jan. 2020

This video explains what

This video explains what liquid silicone rubber (or LSR) is, and some of its main uses in industry and products or components.

Silicone rubber is sought after as a production material as it is generally non-reactive, stable, and resistant to extremes. As a kind of rubber, it can be molded into many shapes and so we see it used in all kinds of applications and products.

These include:

- Medical products

- Babycare items

- Food contact products

- Automotive

- Tubes used for wiring

- O-rings & seals

- Molded custom shapes and designs, such as a muffin trays

- Apparel

- Electronics

Silicone rubber is a very adhesive gel until it is somehow 'cured,' 'vulcanized,' or 'catalyzed' using different processes, which is when it will take on a solid state. It may also be injection molded to achieve that, too.

We'll also look at some key areas where silicone rubber is superior to organic rubber at extreme temperatures, such as:

- Elongation

- Creep

- Cyclic flexing

- Tear strength

- Fire resistance

- Tensile strength

We go on to explore the special grades of silicone rubber, including hardness levels and different resistance types.

Why silicone does the job

Why silicone does the job right every time. If you are looking to glue difficult areas and have them last here you go. Silicone Adhesive works great on so many surfaces and does great under wet conditions like your shower area.

Ish Ish

love all your video's keep up the GREAT work?????

Buzz Burrows

I've been using silicon sealant for years and I never thought to use in this manner. Thanks, keep the tips coming. Cheers from New Zealand.


I had just a few blobs of this holding a 20 gallon metal tank down on a Boston Whaler, this stuff is extremely tough, my question to you is do you think this stuff is strong enough to hold down solar panels to a roof van that never goes over 65mph?? Im trying to avoid drilling a ton of holes in the roof.

Mario Super

This sure looks amazing. Is this stuff comparable to Sikaflex or even better? I used Sikaflex countless times and liked it a lot. I'm asking because the Permatex stuff is pretty hard to get here. Your friend from Germany ??


Right Stuff FTW

Atif H Siddiqui

Would it hurt the car paint, just in case if I wanna remove emeblem?


good tip and you come out with many, thanks.

SWEET x 10 !!!

Kerry Rodgers

Dam Mike I thought alcohol was going to be part of this video! LOL
As in rubbing alcohol hehehe


The problem I used to have with silicone was having it cure in the tube between uses. I found by removing 1/4" of silicone from the end of the tip and replacing it with petroleum jelly that it keeps the air out and greatly extends the life of the tube.

Trevor Leonard

Permatex is my goto. If they make something I need I buy their products.

Fatty's Garage

Excellent video! I had a 2016 Ford Explorer and the B pillar plastic cover containing the keyless entry pad kept separating from the two sided tape. I took it in 2 times under warranty and they kept replacing the tape which held for a couple of weeks. I decided to remove the tape and put some Black RTV sealant to hold it and it is solid as a rock a year later! Like you said, many uses in the shop for this stuff! 10 Fatty's to match your 10 Sweets! Lol

Rafael Cervantes

Thank you, thank you! ? just what I need it I was looking for something like this for months now. Now I know what to use. Thank you my friend you are awesome ? thanks for what you do for us I really appreciate it keep up the good work you do my friend


I've always had issues with door weatherstrip on vintage cars that mount to a flat surface, would you recommend this in place of standard 3M weatherstrip adhesive?

George Myers

Great video and great tip about that product.i had no idea that this stuff existed.please keep the videos coming

Axel Bart

Thank you 4 sharing

Einstein Casino


Silver Grizzly

Sweeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeet!!! I said to myself, Self, I know he's not gonna break that hemi badge... cause I know they ain't cheap!!! But then glues it to a metal can,????. LOVE IT my friend! That stuff is AMAZING, I would definitely give it 10 SWEETS also! ??GREAT product review. Miles of Smiles my brother. ☺☺☺☺☺

Phil Durham

Would this work on fabric for custom head rests?


I asked the question a couple of weeks ago and you said the answer was coming up: "2010 Yaris. Roof molding is coming loose. Buy new or glue it down?' So is this what I need to use to glue it down? Looks like some heavy duty stuff!


Do you think this can be used to adhere an undermount sink to the countertop? The product description just says metals, glass, plastic, vinyl..

Dublin Pipe

Wow fantastic thank you ????


Just curious, but if I buy the white or clear, can I mix in paint, food coloring, dye, etc to color it? Thanks


Glad I saved the loose letters from my 2006 Sonata that all fell off recently. Back on they will go!

Chevy Citation X-11

That stuff is far better than "Flex Seal"


These are great for subwoofer enclosures aswell,lowers rattling.

Independence City Motoring

Can this be used as weatherstripping to fill a gap between a car roof and door trim where water is getting in? Sounds too permanent if it ever needs to be removed.


I’m about to repair the leather seats on my beloved 99 Tahoe based on all of your tips. Thanks alot man!

Nico_ e93_335i

Thanks again guys. Great tip!


Question... will this work in a high heat area?

Randal Morris

This stuff is the "BOMB"! The only brand of silicone adhesive to use. Can't wait to see the video on fixing seats.

Papa Hoe

,,WHAT no espanyol ?
But I hit the ?anyway


by the way this stuff is great for refitting trim pieces that you dont want to rattle

Chuck Taylor

Great video! Do you have a video on best way to remove emblems, and the adhesive?


(screw in end of silicone tube) I found that it works better to buy little mini plastic bags (like on eBay), put it over the tip, zip tie it and squeeze until full, when it dries it dries completely over and around tip, I also stuff plastic food bags in the end. If you put in refrigerator it will last another 25% longer, no mess, just rip off the glob and start using.

Man Time TV

Can RTV silicone glue be used to re attach a loose rear bumper step cover?

Joe Willis

Enjoy your videos...what a Guru you are! Question...I have a 2011 Tahoe and the dash has cracked...before I found out about 303...will the clear silicone adhesive hold the cracked dash together and how is the best way to get the dash together until the adhesive dries...GO TIGERS AND DOGS UNLESS THEY PLAY EACH OTHER THEN IT IS GO TIGERS!



Crow T. Robot

Yup. Love the stuff.

Latex caulk has many uses, too, and an object can be later removed if you want, but only if you want. Will hold where superglue won't.

Nenad Stanojevic

How do you store the glue?
I have been using Sikaflex and that is my go to glue. For me, this is my cats meow. However it does not keep well, no silicones do. How do you keep it from going off?
I put mine in the fridge but it still goes off.

Frank Ziccarelli

You son of a gun you! Sweeeeet tip and I really needed this review because I was just looking for a good long lasting silicone adhesive! Seriously ! Great info as usual! 10 Sweeeeets for sure!

fredrik bergquist

How does it hold up to gas and diesel?

Martin Gillespie

We won't get stuck with this Video

Marc Lussier

ADVICE! Thank You for all of your hard work and dedication to your videos and for providing us the viewers with a wealth of knowledge and information. ????

Mike Morales

Great video, as always. I have a water leak coming from the roof of my Yaris hatchback around the top of the A pillar, I've tried marine silicone and JB Weld and it did not work. Do you suppose this product will do the trick?

Coolissim0 Unl1mited

My friend you glued me on this video, thanks.

C10 Syndicate

My Sunday fix thanks ?????

Kevin C

I need to apply a silicone adhesive to a plastic dash cover since the one it came with did not hold so well from the sun warping it. If I apply this product will I have time to adjust the cover or once I place it on I'm basically setting it there for life?

Kenny Springer

Is it pliable can I use it to restore leather seats cracks and such

sandy moonstone

?™ ??
. can this be used to seal on differential covers?


been using this stuff on my car for years, so damn usefull and flexible

michael mixon

Great video and great product!!!


I tried using the black silicone to ad a new vapor wrap on my doors and it wouldn't hold the wrap. Really strange, it dried to the door very strong but would not hold the wrap I chose. I just figured the heavy wrap was to blaim


Can I use this on my rearview mirror?. It keeps falling off . I tried other products that did not work from autozone.. SMH Thanks

Brian Adkins

I need this to glue and seal my rear glass Convertible window back to my top. Thanks for the info my friend.

Kathy Lewis

Thanks Sweeeeeettttt!

Michael Lane

Great video as always! Saw something online today about sealing the end of a tube of sealant. The person had a can of "plastic dip" and just dipped the nozzle of the tube and let it cure. Custom fitted cap for the sealant tube! Have not had chance to try it yet, but it looks like it wold work. Keep up the sweeeet videos

Crazyhorse AZ



Trying to figure out if this would be a good type of silicone to use around perimeter of glass block window (window has a vinyl frame and a nailing flange...setting it in a wood frame) Instructions say to completely fill perimeter around window with silicone. Would this stuff work better than regular cheap silicone?...or is it not supposed to be used at such a thickness? (Gaps are appx 1/4" and a couple of inches deep)

The Arrow

Hi ... there..every day new video new product new job and new ideas.... thank you man and have a good day....??????

Bent Nickel

Thank you so much. I've got just the project for the clear.

Ed Peck

Thanks for the update, never would have thought about using that.


Thank you for the great tip. Have a wonderful Sunday, buddy

Sgt Joe Smith

Which caulk felt better to hold? The black caulk or the white caulk?

Sgt Joe Smith



I quit using yellow death (3m weather strip adhesive) back in the early 80s after I first used rtv silicone gasket maker. I can't believe you'd need anything better than that , but good tip

Niamh Healy

Good to know thank you! Always looking for a good adhesive :)


The black RTV silicone also works wonderfully to fix cracks in leather and attaching a spoiler to your car. Just make sure the area is clean before applying this silicone. The spoiler will not come off easily if prep done right.


can this be used to fill in a hole in the rubber strap on my front bumper ?

Dave Kana

My Cummins emblem came off on my 24V, just what I needed to see, thanks, Dave!
