Helping Propel Ideas Skyward
When Neil Armstrong took his first small step on the moon’s surface on July 20, 1969, it wasn’t just a giant leap for mankind – it was a giant leap for GE Silicones. Armstrong took that step in moon boots featuring soles made from GE’s advanced silicone rubber. And today, materials from GE Silicones – now named Momentive – are used on every manned U.S. space flight.
Driving Tire Innovations Ahead
The road to innovation often begins with a simple question: “What if?” What if you could increase fuel economy? What if you could enhance safety? What if there was a better way to manufacture a tire? Momentive is prepared to explore all these questions – because we’ve asked them ourselves. And we’ve delivered the answers.
Enabling A Brighter Future
Momentive’s innovative Ultra Clear Silopren* LSR 7000 series technology is inspiring LED lighting manufacturers to change their materials of choice to achieve better optical clarity and durability, streamline manufacturing and create more intricate designs.
Enabling A Visionary Contact Lens
The ideal contact lens should deliver high levels of comfort, lubricity, oxygen permeability, clarity and durability at a competitive price. That’s why Momentive is working with leading industry specialists to develop advanced silicone materials that are facilitating the creation of the next generation of silicone hydrogel contact lenses. And we’re continuing our research and testing to further refine material properties so we can help manufacturers produce lenses with even better performance.
