Seeing scientific research and entrepreneurship from a silicone rubber




Xinhua Network

Xinhuanet Beijing, March 20th At present, more and more researchers have joined the entrepreneurial tide and become an important force in China's economic transformation and upgrading. Regrettably, some researchers have been caught in “pits” because they have not dealt with the relationship between technology and the market. Zhejiang Kesida New Materials Co., Ltd. recently aimed at the new demand in the construction field, and used a silicone rubber to “stick” the building market, showing great potential and providing inspiration for researchers to successfully start a business...


Jiang Chengyong, the head of Keshida Company, is a senior expert in the field of silicone polymer. He used to be the deputy chief engineer of Chenguang Chemical Research Institute. He has been engaged in the synthesis and application of organosilicon materials for a long time, and has compiled a monograph on silicone chemical technology in international and domestic. Many academic journals have published many academic papers. Under his leadership, the company has continuously introduced professional and technical personnel to successfully convert the national invention patent “self-adhesive two-component room temperature vulcanized silicone rubber and application” into market products for the new demand of the construction market.


It is understood that in order to avoid damage to the building due to thermal expansion or cold shrinkage, expansion joints are often reserved between building components. Reserving expansion joints means opening holes or voids in the building, which not only affects the appearance of the building, but also causes problems such as water leakage and corrosion of steel bars in the structure. Therefore, the use of special materials for filling and sealing in the reserved expansion joints is a common practice in the construction industry.


Cheng Yong said that the development of this new type of silicone sealant has solved the technical problem of building expansion joint filling materials for a long time. In addition to the basic performance of general-purpose silicone sealant, it is resistant to high and low temperature and drowning. Moisture-proof and weather-resistant, it also has outstanding advantages such as deep curing, firm bonding, and long-lasting resistance to water.


If the development of a company is likened to a coin, then innovation and quality are two sides of the coin. Jiang Chengyong said that products that go out of the laboratory must have excellent quality. In order to verify the performance of the product, Costar has conducted a large number of tests and in-depth studies: the early application of the sealant-bonded concrete assembly, which was immersed in river water and seawater, and tested in units of time; In terms of engineering applicability of the glue, Costar also conducted hundreds of long-term verification tests on key features such as deep curing of the product; in addition, Costar also built analog highways, tunnels, reservoirs, etc. within the company. The construction engineering environment, and the company's own production of new silicone sealant for filling and filling seals, respectively, simulation application test and application effectiveness review.


In the future, with the advancement of the national new urbanization strategy, infrastructure construction will usher in a wave of enthusiasm, which means that silicone sealant will also usher in a new wave of market opportunities. "After the completion of the first batch of pilot projects, the scope of application will be further improved and improved, and finally the product will be finalized and expanded to scale production and promotion and application." Jiang Chengyong said.
