First of all, silicone is a highly active adsorption material, insoluble in water and any solvent, chemical stability. While plastic is a kind of material mainly made of high molecular organic material. In the manufacturing and processing process, injection molding is typically the preferred option for plastic products. Secondly, silicone is non-toxic and tasteless, and it is a kind of breathing material, so it can play a good role in keeping fresh food. But when baked at high temperatures, plastic products will release toxic substances. Therefore, when we choose tableware for children, we must choose silicone material.
In addition, silicone is environmental-friendly and degradable, non-flammable, however, plastic does now own these good properties. Once burning, plastic will release unhealthy gas, and its service is short, deform and crack easily. Of course, because the material and other aspects of silicone are better than plastic, so the price will be higher than plastic products.
Many people are confused about the safety of silicone. Silicone is a safe material, or else manufacturers and consumers will not utilize it for food and body-related products. When using silicone to stock food, FDA-approved food grade silicone is advocated; When using it for sanitation or beauty, medical grade silicone is a top choice. That’s why people are so pleased to use silicone products instead plastic ones.
