Silicone expert witnesses may be sought out for cases involving numerous types of devices and/or products, as the material is a commonly found polymer used for its similarities to rubber and resistance to heat. Silicones expert consulting may provide valuable information regarding litigation over its applications in consumer products, the food and beverage industry, industrial fields, various branches of the engineering fields, electronics, cookware and other house appliances, construction defects or other building problems, coatings, medicine, cleaning methods and supplies, automotive manufacturing, and other such areas.
In addition to the silicone material, silicone expert witnesses are also often knowledgeable with metals and alloys, rubber, foams, plastics, resins, composites, and other types of manufacturing materials. Whether it is being used in the building of pipelines, tools, adhesives, castings, packaging, or other types of projects, any material, including those utilizing silicones, must comply the codes and compliances enforced for the purpose of workplace safety and quality control.
As with any type of manufacturing material, silicone expert witnesses are also often knowledgeable in the process of product development, product design, industrial engineering, materials testing, and laboratory testing, as an error made in any of these areas may lead to issues with product liability and a need for failure analysis. Silicone-based products must also adhere to patent law, as violations would be grounds for potential lawsuits.
