What Are the Origins of Silicone Rubber?

In order to understand what silicone rubber is and what it is used for, it is necessary to go right back to the start and understand rubber in its purest form.

Nobody wants to be placed on hold and be forced to listen to a succession of tunes while they wait to speak to a living, breathing person.

As soon as we got to Singapore, Stacy had two meetings with doctors. Both of them … Read more
