Is rubber better than silicone?

Solution

Explanation:

  • Silicone is created using silicon and oxygen, whereas rubber is created using carbon-carbon bonds.
  • Rubber is less resistant to heat, chemicals, fungi, ultraviolet light, and ozone.
  • Because silicone has a higher heat resistance than natural rubbers, it can be used to complete insulation more efficiently.
  • Silicone has a longer life expectancy than elastomers.

Hence, silicone is much better than rubber.
