Lower cost in use

A little bit of silicone goes a very long way. Because silicones are effective at low use levels, much less material may be required to do the same job.

Did you know ... it can take as many as 12-15 layers of a traditional textile printing ink to achieve the same effect that can be obtained with only three layers of a silicone textile printing ink! Reduced material requirements and a shorter, faster, less
labor-intensive production cycle contribute to the silicone’s
cost effectiveness. Learn more about the
advantages of silicone textile printing inks.

Silicones can also streamline processing, reduce labor costs, and increase productivity.

And many silicone materials deliver multiple benefits. So, while their initial purchase price may be more, silicones can actually end up costing less to use!

Did you know ... a silicone antifoam that costs twice as much as an organic antifoam can actually cost half as much to use! See the math.
Did you know ... a single silicone paint additive can provide as many as five different performance benefits. And while silicones may cost more than some other materials, they are effective at such low concentrations, they often cost less to use!

Silicone economics

Why a silicone antifoam that costs more to buy can actually cost less to use.
