If you asked us, we’d tell you that silicone is the wonder material. It’s strong, durable, versatile and practically hypoallergenic. What do people really want to know, though? Just how durable silicone is. If you’ve ever wondered whether or not silicone melts, you’ve come to the right place. \nFirst Things First: What Is Silicone?\nSilicone is a polymer made from silica and silicon, two elements that can be combined with others to create a gel, paste or even solid substances. Often seen in bakeware, cooking utensils and even surgical implants, silicone is used in a variety of ways. From tires to your muffin trays, silicone is everywhere. Known for its exceptional durability, we pride ourselves on using the best silicone out there free of additives and fillers that can cause allergic reactions or hold onto odors and other harmful bacteria in all of our silicone products, such as our silicone rings. \nAt What Point Will Silicone Melt?\nSilicone, the wonder material that it is, doesn’t melt until the temperature reaches between 200 to 250 degrees Celscius, which is roughly 392 to 480 degrees Fahrenheit. That’s why it’s used so often in baking and cooking! Many companies will add flame-retardant additives to ensure that their product doesn’t melt in those higher temperatures often seen when baking or cooking. Our Q2X rings can withstand heats up to 575 degrees Fahrenheit, which is what makes them perfect for firefighters, mechanics or anyone else who might potentially come into contact with high temperatures. \nBrowse Our Collection of Silicone Rings\nWill Heat Shrink Silicone?\nThat’s a great question. Extreme heat — especially beyond 575 degrees Fahrenheit — might warp silicone, but silicone really shrinks when placed in a bowl of ice water after placing it in a pot of boiling water for a minute and swirling it around without letting it touch the sides. The immediate cold allows for the material to shrink, as all things do in the cold. \nA lot of people ask can you shrink silicone rings, and the answer is yes — but we definitely prioritize finding a proper ring size instead of shrinking any of our rings! We’ve put together a helpful guide to show you how to measure ring size in an easy and efficient way, which is perfect in preventing the need for shrinking any rings. \n\nWho Should Wear a Silicone Ring?\nThis is a simple answer — everyone! Here at QALO, we know that our silicone rings are perfect for everyone. Whether you’re a personal trainer, an on-the-go parent, a business professional or a first responder, we have a ring for you. The durability and affordability of silicone rings beat out metal bands every time. \nPlus, our silicone products aren’t just for humans. Your pups can join team silicone too!
