Silicones and sealants by GE For more than 50 years, GE Silicones has been manufacturing and selling a unique family of materials including fluids and specialties, elastomers, sealants, and coatings.

The silicones family of engineered materials is man-made, with a chemical backbone similar to that of high temperature inorganic materials such as quartz, glass and sand.

The inherent benefits of silicones include moisture protection, UV, ozone and chemical resistance, and unique temperature cycling capabilities. Building on the benefits this molecular backbone provides, GE Silicones has developed versatile product families with additional user benefits and dramatic differences in product form.
