Silicones are used for adhering, potting and sealing. They come in two basic forms, 1 part, which cure on exposure to air, moisture, or UV light, and 2 part, which cure when mixed.

In general, silicones have good electrical and high temperature properties, and are also quite solvent resistant, which raises quite a problem if you have to remove something that has been siliconed.
