We are not getting technical with the sticky silicone gel which may make it more difficult to understand. Here, we are trying to explain it to the end user to have a better understanding of sticky gel in other applications including suction car mobile holders.
How does sticky silicone gel look like and why it is so unique?
It looks like adhesive soft transparent gel in the physical form more like the hydrogel. Hydrogel basically swells with water whereas it is more water resistant. Further, it does not lose its stickiness under moisture and also does not leave any mark after it has been removed from the surface where it was used for mounting. It means that silicone gel does not harm the surface where it is used for adhesion and does not make a permanent bond. Bonding is still strong enough. It is having soft tension. It means that it is able to enter into deep paths of the textured surface and makes a stronger bond with textured surfaces where ordinary suction type car mobile holders often fail. It means that sticky silicone gel can be used for adhesion applications on the textured and slightly uneven surface also. It does not dry with the passage of time and retains its stickiness over a much longer duration of time. It finds numerous applications in skin care, wound care and neonatal care because it does not make a permanent bond with the surface. When it is removed from the surface, it does not leave any mark or damaged skin, making it very useful for neonatal babies skin which is extremely soft and prone to damage by the adhesive material.
Why is sticky silicone gel reusable?
Given the fact that it is water resistant and does not dry like other adhesions make it unique. If there are dust particles on suction mount, you can directly wash silicone gel suction mounts under running water and still retain its adhesive properties making it unique and reusable.
How to reuse sticky silicone gel?
Simply wash silicone gel vacuum mounts under running tap water. After washing, let it dry naturally. Please, do not use any cloth, napkin or cotton to wipe it manually as dust and other particles from cloth or cotton used for drying again gets accumulated over the surface of the suction mount. Once you have dried the suction mount under natural conditions, it can be used again.
How is sticky silicone gel important for suction type car magnetic phone holder?
Given its properties, it does not leave any residue on the dashboard or windshield of the car. Further, it can be again used by just washing under running water as it does not lose its properties under moisture and regains stickiness.
