The difference between a silicone ice cube and a plastic ice cube
Jun 10, 2018

The hot summer is coming, to our friend after 90, the kitchen USES plastic ice case to be very familiar really. When the sun is shining in the sky, people are very fond of pouring drinks or milk into the ice box for quick freezing. Thirst quenching is necessary. Especially in the recent years, the popular silica gel ice lattice, people often compare the plastic ice lattice, which is the best and which is the worst, and express their opinions. What's the difference between a silicone ice cube and an older generation of plastic ice cubes?

Plastic ice shelf, low temperature resistance, high thermal expansion rate, easy to burn, poor dimensional stability, easy deformation, most of the plastic low temperature resistance, brittle at low temperature, easy to aging; And silica gel ice lattice high and low temperature resistance, suitable temperature range -40 to 230 degrees Celsius, long life; The chemical properties of silica gel materials are stable, and the products produced by the product have a longer life and are more flexible and comfortable than other materials. It benefits from the softness of silica gel materials and is extremely flexible and non-deformation. There is no doubt that it seems that the silicone ice shelf is obviously superior to the product material, and the silica gel material is environmentally friendly and non-toxic, and can pass the food-grade certification. At present the plastic ice case on the market as long as is given priority to with square only, lack characteristic and clean up very troublesome. The silicone ice case is different! The silicone ice cube allows you to make more shapes on the outside, which is delicious and beautiful. Due to the soft texture of silicone, cleaning is very convenient.

Among many ice cells, the ice cells of two materials are quite popular, respectively plastic ice lattice and silica gel ice lattice. Can the ice cells of these two materials be replaced by each other? Only for material, the silica gel ice material is little not environmental protection, plastic not environmental protection is everyone clear a thing, now a lot of products are adopted the ice making silicone material. Silica gel is a kind of highly active adsorbent material, insoluble in water and any solvent, non-toxic, tasteless, stable in chemical properties, and does not react with any substances except strong alkali and hydrofluoric acid. And plastic is a kind of material with high molecular weight organic matter as main component, it presents solid shape when processing is finished, in manufacturing and processing process, it is formed by injection molding.
