The use of this material has always been accompanied by the development of human industry, and the technological level has been continuously improved and improved. The history of silicone is described below.


In the 11th century, people in South America have used silicone rubber balls for games and sacrifices. This is the earliest use of silicone products as a tool for human beings in history. In 1493, when the Italian voyager Columbus sailed to the Americas for the second time, he saw the Indians playing with a black ball in their hands. The ball dropped to the ground and bounced high. It was made of milk taken from a tree.

In 1736, the French scientist Kang Daming participated in the South American Scientific Expedition, brought some silicone rubber products and related information about rubber trees from Peru to France, and published "A Brief History of Travel in the South America."


During the second industrial revolution in Western countries in the 1880s, British doctor Dunlop invented the pneumatic tire in 1888. In 1876, the Englishman Wickham transported the rubber tree seeds and seedlings from Brazil to the Royal Botanic Gardens Kew Garden in London to breed, and then transported the cultivated rubber seedlings to Ceylon, Malaya, Indonesia and other places for planting. It is also widely used in automotive rubber parts. Since 1904, the history of rubber cultivation in China has begun.
