Organic silicon can be used to produce a great variety of products. The main product is chloro(methyl)silane.
Raw materials, such as silica powder, chloromethane, chlorobenzene, etc., are synthesized by catalytic reaction into methyl chlorosilane, phenyltrichlorosilane and other monomers, then generate various polymers through a series of chemical reactions and then are processed into different kinds of products.
A series of products derived from methyl chlorosilane monomers usually account for more than 90% of total organic silicon products.
Production technologies of organic silicon are very complex and its industrialization is challenging.
Moreover, any change needed to correct an out of spec product required almost twelve hours.
