Finzel (American Paint and Coatings Journal, January 19 (1981) p. 19; Metal Finishing, June (1982) p. 49) has authored two review articles on silicones. He points out that silicones are mature products having first been introduced over thirty years ago. Their major use in the coatings field is for maintenance to provide protection against weathering, temperature extremes, and corrosive atmospheres. Silicones, when combined with other vehicles, impart increased resistance to moisture, chemicals, ultraviolet degradation, thermal shock, chalking, fading, and peeling. The major use, however, for silicones is for high temperature coatings as reactive intermediates and as paint additives.
