Silicone resins are branched oligosiloxanes, high Si-O bond energy and very useful in pressure-sensitive adhesives, silicone rubbers, coatings and additives. Can resist temperatures up to 350 °C to 600°C. Have outstanding oxidation resistance, High water-repellency with simultaneous vapor permeability, as well as outstanding mechanical properties. Primarily used as hydrophobic agents for building protection, As binders for silicone resin emulsion paints and plasters for building facades, for highly heat resistant coatings, production of composite materials, in industrial coatings and for organic fillers and for fabrics or textile webs. Release agents in the plastics industry, as binders.

Silicone resins are primarily used as hydrophobic agents for building protection having higher thermal stability and increased weathering resistance.
