Silicones play an important role in promoting sustainable development because they enhance the performance and durability of a large number of commercial and industrial products. Silicone lends its useful characteristics when applied to other materials allowing them to last longer, spread better, stay flexible or rigid and withstand extreme temperatures or humidity, thus reducing the resource and energy consumption of the products in which they are used.
Committed to the responsible use of silicones, the GSC continues to evaluate the science behind the material through many rigorous research programs. Research methodologies include computer modeling, laboratory testing, and environmental monitoring.
