Referring to industrial glue, silicone glue cannot be ignored because this is one of the glues that are applied in many areas of life, from construction, advertising to home decoration, …
So what is silicone glue? What types of silicone sealants are there? What types of silicone glue are popular in 2021. Let’s find out with Hichem through the following article.
Learn about silicone glue
Silicone glue is a silicon based glue, produced from primary silicon with additives or catalysts. The outstanding feature of silicone glue is extremely good adhesion on many materials such as glass, wood, porcelain, concrete cement, iron, plastic, aluminum… Silicone glue has a very fast drying time in only about ten minutes, with high strength. Very good elasticity so you don’t have to worry about damaging the surface of the material.
And thanks to its excellent weather resistance and good adhesion without primer, silicone sealant is used in many fields from construction, home repair, advertising to furniture repair. , exterior.
How to distinguish silicone glue lines on the market
Distinguish by color
The principle of coloring silicon glue
Because silicone sealant is made up of primary silicone combined with additives and catalysts, it is easy to make colored silicon glues by adding colorants to clear silicone sealants. Depending on the level of color and purpose, manufacturers will have their own formula and mixing ratio.
If you want to color the silicone glue to suit your needs, you can also color the glue yourself by mixing the silicone clear with color. However, be very careful about the ratio of mixing glue to color, because it is likely that if you mix too much, the adhesion of the glue will be significantly reduced.
The best way is before mixing in large quantities and putting into use, you should take a small amount of glue mixed with a little color to check how the product adheres.
Why is it necessary to create a variety of colors for silicone glue?
Depending on the purpose, each person has different glue color choices. Especially when using glue to glue/fill items for decoration, display, etc., it is very important to choose suitable and compatible glue colors to create a harmonious whole. necessary, needs.
In order not to reveal the glue line when gluing / filling, help the color of the glue to match the color of the material to create a uniform and beautiful look.
Silicone glue colors most used most
Silicone glue transparent or milky white is the most widely used glue on the market. Glue has very good adhesion and is often used in the garment industry such as cotton fabrics, hats, clothes, etc. In addition, the glue is also used to glue glass and glass such as glass tanks, glass tanks, window glass. … or filling cracks on objects made of metal, plastic, porcelain… such as door seals, toilet sinks, kitchen sinks, etc.
Silicone glue black is a silicone glue with a neutral composition, very safe because it does not contain toxic substances and has no odor affecting the environment and health. The glue has good adhesion and weather resistance, very suitable for gluing or filling gaps on walls, billboards, etc.
Brown or yellow?
High quality silicone brown or yellow silicone Keadhesive with extremely good adhesion quality. Because the color matches with wood furniture, this glue is often used in gluing / filling wooden materials such as furniture, handicrafts, wooden doors, wooden floors, tables, chairs, bookshelves, etc. …
Silicone glue red color is a type of silicone glue with very good heat resistance, high elasticity, good adhesion on a variety of materials. Red silicone sealant is widely applied in cases with high requirements for insulation because this glue has the ability to insulate and withstand very high temperatures, even up to 300 degrees Celsius.
Gray silicone sealant retains the properties of silicone glue with high adhesion, dries very quickly and has good weather resistance, no corrosion, high elasticity. This type of glue is most commonly used in the advertising industry with the function of gluing aluminum pieces.
In addition, gray silicon glue is also used in industry because of its ability to work well on materials such as metal, wood, plastic, glass, etc. Not only that, gray silicon glue is also used in the industry. marine as construction of ships, containers, interior and exterior panels.

In addition to the above colors, there are other types of silicone glue other colors such as blue, etc., depending on your needs, please choose the right glue for you!
Distinguish by shape
Silicone glue toothpick
Silicone glue toothpick is a small-sized silicone glue usually used by directly attaching a silicone glue gun.
Because of its small size, this glue is often used for gluing / filling in small places that require high meticulousness such as crafts, handicrafts, household goods, etc.
Glue has the advantage of very fast drying, good adhesion, so it is favored by many people because of its cost and time savings.
Silicone glue beads
Silicone glue granular is a silicone glue with a pellet or granular texture of different sizes, often quite
Silicone glue plastic base
Plastic-based silicone glue is widely used in the production of diapers and non-woven fabrics. Thanks to its convenience, time saving and increased productivity, this glue is often produced in large volumes.
Differentiate by construction site
Silicone glue construction
Construction works are directly affected by the harsh weather, rain, wind, and storms year after year, so silicone glue used for construction requires very high quality. The key factor that any silicone sealant used for construction works must have is good weather resistance (waterproof, anti-corrosion, anti-mildew, high temperature resistance, anti-radiation). UV…) and has high adhesion “despite storms” on many types of materials such as concrete, iron, steel, etc.
Also because of the large volume requirement, the silicone glue used for the project must be a widely produced glue, easy to apply on many different types of glue guns.

Silicone glue for household use
Unlike silicone glue used in construction, silicone glue for household use often requires not too strict quality indicators, such as weather resistance, because most of them are for furniture. furniture.
Besides, because the furniture is often small in size and small in quantity, there is no need for too much silicone glue, and most of it is used in tubes. They will be applied on materials such as wood, brick, enamel, iron, steel…
Distinguish by chemical composition
Silicone glue acid will release acetic acid so it usually has a characteristic smell of sour smell. Acid glue has the outstanding advantages of low cost, high elasticity, very fast drying, no sagging during construction, and especially good weather resistance such as rain resistance. wind, humidity, UV rays, etc.
The disadvantage of silicone acid glue is that it is not environmentally friendly, in addition, because of its acidity, they will corrode the surface of metal, plastic, iron, steel …

Silicone glue neutral
Silicone neutral glue is manufactured from the main material of silicone, which is non-toxic to human health and environmentally friendly. In addition, the neutral silicone sealant is also resistant to harsh weather of warm, hot environments, ultraviolet rays, and UV rays.
It also does not discolor, does not mildew, does not crack, has no corrosion, subsides, sag and has excellent adhesion on most materials such as wood, glass, concrete, cement. , ceramic,…
The disadvantage of silicone neutral glues is that the cost is often higher than that of acid silicone sealants, in addition, they also have poor frictional resistance and are not suitable for oily surfaces.
