Ageing Experiments of Mastics and Silicones Used in Bonding of Range Hood Glass

Hakan Tekbaş, Mehmet Ekici


Silicon is a synthetic compound consisting of elements such as silicon (silicium), oxygen, carbon, and hydrogen. Silicones are frequently used in adhesive, sealing, and insulating products. It that can be found in different colors and characteristics and it is for various purposes. In terms of structure, it is usually liquid and flexible, and used as adhesive and sealing material in white goods sector. The adhesive in the mastic structure is mixed with the filling materials and the frequent use of this mastic material which is cheaper structure, causes various problems in the sector. In this study, ageing experiments for silicon and mastic materials were conducted and the results were compared.
