Is there any difference between silicone ice tray and plastic ice tray?

The summer is coming soon, and for our friends after 90's, the plastic ice cubes in the kitchen are really familiar. When the sun shines, people like to pour a drink or milk into the refrigerator and put it in the fridge for freezing. It is necessary to quench the thirst, and monotonous ice cubes do not exist. In particular, the popular silicone ice trays in recent years are often compared with plastic ice trays, and they are always better than others. What is the difference between the silicone ice tray and the old-generation plastic ice tray?


Plastic ice tray, poor low temperature resistance, high thermal expansion rate, easy to burn, poor dimensional stability, easily deformed, most plastics have low resistance to low temperature, become brittle at low temperatures, easy to aging; and silicone ice cold temperature, applicable temperature range -40 to 230 degrees Celsius, long life; Silicone material chemical properties are very stable, made products, have a longer life than other materials, soft and comfortable, thanks to the flexibility of silicone material, very flexible, no deformation.

Undoubtedly, it seems that on the material of the product, the silicone ice cube is obviously superior, and the silicone material is environmentally friendly and non-toxic, and can be certified by food grade. Currently, plastic ice cubes on the market are mainly based on squares and lack of Features and cleaning are very troublesome. The silicone ice tray is not the same! Silicone ice cubes can do more graphics on the outside, which is really delicious and good-looking. Due to the soft texture of silicone, cleaning is very convenient. Obviously, the silica gel ice cubes have gone further.


 Among the many ice cubes, the two types of ice cubes are relatively hot, namely, plastic ice trays and silicone ice trays. Can these two types of ice trays replace each other? If you just use materials, the material of silicone ice cubes is rarely not environmentally friendly, plastic is not environmentally friendly is a matter we all clear, and now many of the products are made of silicone ice tray production. Silica gel is a highly active adsorbent material, insoluble in water and any solvent, non-toxic and odorless, chemically stable, and does not react with any substances except strong alkali and hydrofluoric acid; plastic is a kind of organic material with high molecular weight. The material of the main component, which has a solid shape when it is processed, is molded by injection molding during the manufacturing and processing.
