Silicone Rubber Seals
are used in a wide variety of automotive, industrial and mass transit applications. They can dampen vibration, provide high-performance radiator gaskets, and seal electrical enclosures. They also provide thermal insulation and moisture protection, as well as a number of other benefits.
Silicone has excellent resilience to chemicals, ozone, heat, and sunlight. This makes silicone an ideal choice for a wide range of applications, from automotive to aerospace and medical devices [117,118].
When you use a seal or gasket in a temperature-sensitive application you want it to maintain its shape no matter what. You don't want it to melt or deform, both of which can lead to system failure. You want a material that will withstand temperatures ranging from -100degC to +500degC without deteriorating or losing its properties, such as hardness and elasticity.
Liquid Silicone Rubber (LSR)
If you are looking for a heat-cured elastomer with good chemical and UV resistance, LSR is the way to go. This thermoset elastomer is easy to mold and has low durometer options, making it the ideal choice for many applications.
Flame Retardant grades, platinum cured and cloth reinforced grades are available on request. All sizes CNC cut to almost any shape or profile required.
Safety and Regulatory Compliance
In addition to their high-performance characteristics, silicones are also recognized for their safety and regulatory compliance. They meet or exceed UL, CSA, FDA, and MIL-SPEC standards, making them an excellent choice for a wide range of manufacturing applications.
