Silicone spray

Why silicone spray?

Silicone spray is a lubricant and lubricant; but also a release agent and insulating agent and care product. It is suitable for mineral oil-free lubrication of all materials and is a clean and odorless alternative to other lubricants containing oils and greases. It has a low surface tension and therefore wets all surfaces very well. Silicone itself, on the other hand, can hardly be wetted, which is why it repels water and dirt well. That's why it is very popular as a release agent and lubricant.

Silicone spray (sometimes also called silicone spray) replaces other unwanted or unsuitable lubricants and protects all parts made of rubber, plastic, wood and leather (especially artificial leather) but also metal, glass, textile, etc. that are compatible with the material. require the same care. The silicone layer protects the material from the effects of the weather and is invisible and does not stick. In addition, the protective film is extremely stable in a temperature range of -50 °C to +200 °C. Silicone spray also prevents adhesions and sticking of materials that either lie on top of each other for a long time (e.g. door rubbers) or are processed under high pressure (e.g. in presses).

Silicone spray applications

Due to its outstanding properties, the product is used in many areas. A list can therefore never be complete.

Grease doors and windows

  • It is ideal for the care of plastic roller shutters. If the roller shutter squeaks, simply lubricate the guide rails on the right and left. The roller shutter armor itself can also be protected from embrittlement with silicone spray.
  • Door seals and window seals always remain supple thanks to the spray, and therefore seal better than unkempt, dirty or brittle sealing rubbers.
  • To lubricate the window fittings you can use a cylinder spray, which you can also use to lubricate a door lock. In principle, the silicone spray is also suitable for a door lock, but the lubricating effect is better with a cylinder spray.
  • To lubricate a garage door, silicone spray is completely sufficient. Almost all rollers on up-and-over doors and sectional doors are made of plastic. You can also use it to perfectly care for all other plastic parts and metal connections and bearings on the garage door.

Care for your car with silicone spray

There are many recommendations for using silicone spray when caring for cars and other vehicles. Some of them are wrong and lead to problems.

Silicone spray on the car is suitable for this

  • Door seal:
    Silicone spray works against freezing and embrittlement. Since the silicone has a water-repellent effect, the ice layer that forms is insulated and does not stick to the door rubbers. This is how you prevent a frozen car door. At the same time, all-round rubber seals on doors, trunk lids and sunroofs always remain supple and do not become brittle. If the car door is frozen, only heat will help – e.g. with a hair dryer.
  • Plastic parts:
    Plastic parts:
    Older cars, youngtimers and vintage cars in particular often have black plastic parts on the outside. These fade due to UV radiation and become brittle over time. If you care for such parts with silicone spray, the black plastic will look like new again. If you regularly care for plastic parts that are exposed to the weather, this increases their lifespan enormously.
  • Tires:
    If you value the appearance of your tires, you can also use silicone spray. But be careful: it is a lubricant and therefore should under no circumstances be used on the treads or brakes. If you want to apply care products to the tires, then only to the sidewalls. But the flanks must not be sprayed directly either. It's best to spray a rag and rub very sparingly from the rim towards the tread.
  • The perfect solution for smearing windshield wipers is cleaning and care with a little silicone spray. The wiper rubber of the windshield wiper ensures the lubricating film even on the smallest contamination. However, do not spray the silicone directly onto the windshield wiper – that would be far too much. Simply spray onto a clean cloth and use it to treat the wiper rubber. So it no longer smears.
  • The second cause of smeared windows is dirt on the window. While driving, you can quickly improve visibility using the washer/wipe system. However, the cause cannot be completely eliminated with this method. The windshield needs to be cleaned. You can do this with glass cleaner or by visiting the car wash.
    By the way: even if the windshield wiper jerks, cleaning it with silicone spray will help.
  • Silicone spray for car windows:
    You can also safely care for the rubber on the side windows with silicone. As with the wiper rubbers, do not spray the window rubbers directly, but rather spray onto a clean cloth and then use this to treat the window rubbers.
  • Some cars have a squeaking problem with the rubber trim on the car windows. This problem can also be solved very easily and quickly with silicone spray. The spray is applied under the sealing lip and through movements while driving – especially when cornering – The silicone is distributed evenly. In some cases, the process needs to be repeated if the squeaking car windows have not yet been completely eliminated.
  • Silicone spray as cockpit spray:
    Cockpits made of plastic can be treated very nicely with silicone spray as a cockpit spray. Many cockpit sprays are based on silicone anyway. There are also other cockpit sprays that clean with alcohol and apply a protective layer with waxes or other agents. Since there are many different plastics available today, we generally recommend testing all sprays in an inconspicuous area. Then, when you are happy with the look, treat the entire cockpit.
  • Silicone spray repairs belt retraction mechanism:
    If the seat belt no longer winds up on its own, the retractor mechanism is usually no longer usable. In this case, silicone spray is the best option. Mineral oil-based oils are completely unsuitable for the mechanics and the belt itself and also dirty clothing.
  • How to repair the belt retractor mechanism:
    1. Pull the belt completely out. Place a large cloth over the seat.
    2. Spray the belt lightly from a distance of 25 to 30 cm and allow it to roll up again. It is sufficient if you only spray the end of the strap (the last 50 cm to 1 meter).
    3. Repeat the process with the back of the strap.
    4. Then let the belt roll in and out several times.
    5. If the effect is not enough, you can repeat the process.
    6. Finally, wipe the belt with a clean cloth.
