Thousands of products are made from either the base material or a critical additive with or from Silicon. Silicon is the second-most abundant element in the earth’s crust. Aluminum, silicon chip, optical glass, solar energy and silicon’s are just a few. The single most use of silicon metal is as an alloy material in various grades of aluminum, primarily aluminum used for performance application such as automotive components and aerospace products. In the last few years, the increasing demand for aluminum based parts has risen significantly, replacing heavy steel or iron parts in automotive applications.  Electronic products, such as cell phones and computers or any electronic that uses a chip is made from silicon. It is a semiconductor chip made from silicon that helps us operate daily. We would not be able to use these products without silicon. Optical glass produced from silicon are used to manufacture both optical fiber and liquid crystal displays. Solar panels are made from silicon, which uses the sun’s ray to generate space and water heating. The photovoltaic industries could not make it without silicon. Silicon’s bases polymers, known as silicones provides a safer alternative to hydrocarbon bases products. These products include but are not limited to lubricants, greases and resins to skin and hair care products, antiperspirants, anti-foam agents, fabric softeners, rubber gaskets and seal, food additives, polishes and coatings, adhesives, and even caulking compounds.
