Silicon vs. Silicone

Guest Editor | Abimelec Perez

Commonly confused, silicon is the 14th element in the period table. Silicone, on the other hand, is a man-made polymer that is commonly known to be a flexible and rubberlike plastic. 

The Joy Factory’s aXtion line cases are made of high quality silicone. The benefits of silicone include: low thermal conductivity and low electrical conductivity. Silicone also has low levels of toxicity, making this material both user and eco-friendly. It is both hypoallergenic and non-odorous. 

Unlike toxic silicon, our high quality material will not have any consequences to the user’s health. Users should be cautious of toxic silicon. A common characteristic of toxic silicon is it becomes sticky as it begins to breakdown. 

With our aXtion line of cases, high quality silicone is used as a repellant. It creates watertight seals to help prevent any damage to the device.
