Material and Features of Silicone Pacifiers

Nov 07,2023

Using the colorless, odorless, non-toxic, high temperature resistant, and low temperature resistant characteristics of silica gel, the nipple made of food-grade silica gel material does not contain Bisphenol A, and can replace traditional latex bottles. It is not easy to deform when using any disinfection method. Silicone nipples are more heat-resistant than ordinary plastic bottles, and harmful substances will not leach out even after prolonged disinfection. They do not produce any plastic odor.

Material of Silicone Pacifier

Liquid silicone is liquid rubber relative to solid high-temperature vulcanized silicone rubber. It is a liquid rubber with good fluidity, fast vulcanization, and safer and more environmentally friendly. It can completely meet the requirements of food grade. According to the functional groups (i.e., cross-linking points) contained in the molecular structure, liquid rubber with functional groups is generally divided into two categories: one is called distal claw-type liquid rubber, in which the functional groups are located at both ends of the molecular structure; the other is called non-distal claw-type liquid rubber, in which the active functional groups are randomly distributed in the main chain.

Characteristics of Silicone Pacifier

Qualified silicone soothers must be non-toxic, tasteless, and transparent, using 100% food-grade (imported) silicone material.

They are very soft and highly elastic. The nipple can stretch to 5mm, allowing the baby's tongue to move freely, as if suckling on the mother's breast.

Silicone nipples are made of ultra-soft silicone, which is twice as thick as ordinary nipples. Therefore, the baby will not experience damage during sucking and it can withstand long-term biting without breaking.

Qualified nipples are generally produced using automatic mechanical production, with no manual intervention in the production process, ensuring the safest and most environmentally friendly production process.

They are designed and feel like real breasts, giving the baby a similar feeling to suckling on mother's breast.

They inherit the excellent properties of silicone products, such as high temperature resistance, weather resistance, and adaptability to repeated high temperature, low temperature, high pressure, boiling, microwave, and chemical agent corrosion, ensuring safety during use.

Silicone nipples do not stick to food and are easy to clean, simply rinse with water to make them clean again.

Qualified silicone soothers have a long lifespan and can be used for more than 10 years.

Qualified silicone soothers must comply with European child product safety standards and FDA certification.

Silicone nipples are made of high-quality silicone. They can withstand temperature changes, can be boiled, have a smooth surface, are transparent, and tasteless. These are all important features of silicone soothers. However, when using newborn silicone pacifier, attention should be paid to safety issues. For example, the elasticity of silicone is not as good as latex, and once the surface is damaged, it can easily tear. Silicone is relatively fragile, so if it is used frequently, the surface should be carefully checked for any damage. If there are any signs of aging on the silicone pacifier, such as dark lines, scratches, teeth marks, or small holes, it should be replaced immediately. Silicone soothers are usually colorless and transparent.
