Coefficient of Frication (COF) of silicone material is quite high which makes it ideal for anti-slip and gripping applications. Along with high and tunable COF value, silicone versatile, non-plastic, eco-friendly, bio-compatible synthetic polymeric material made from natural silica. It is a sustainable material being less intruding on environment with reduced CO2 emission, with nominal use of electricity, raw material, and water for production in comparison to other plastics. Silicone products are incredibly durable, flexible, stain-resistant, easy-to-clean, and able to undergo extreme temperatures with the other properties intact, gives them potential for long life reusability.
We believe to satisfy todays’ needs without endangering the capacity of coming generations, silicones are one of the sustainable biocompatible man-made polymer materials derived from silica, which is the second most abundant mineral on Earth.

Although silicone is one of the outstanding sustainable synthetic elastomer with excellent combination of chemical and mechanical properties, the inherent property of lower surface energy of silicone limits it’s extensive usages. Realizing this innovation - commercialization gap, with 50 years of silicone materials experience and after an intensive research, following an innovative patented technology, GS newly revealed the supply of elastomeric printable silicone composite sheet: Compo-SiL®, which is a breakthrough in solving the surface inertia of silicone with the polyurethane-based modified layer. As a result, silicone can be easily applied to anywhere with diverse adhesive materials, or can do further construction on the modified side. Compo-SiL® is not only a sustainable and user-friendly composite material, but also, it has opened up unlimited possibilities and unprecedented freedom of design acting as an emerging material, substrate for various industries and a revolutionary solution that brings the purity of silicone to the world.
