Silicone Rubber Extrusions

Silicone rubber is one of the most stable polymers available. It offers superior reliability and exceptional service life. Extruded silicone rubber parts can easily withstand long term exposure to environmental extremes in a temperature range of -80?F to 400?F. Silicone rubber is also an excellent material choice for applications involving hot water.

Silicone can be specially compounded with heat stabilizers, plasticizers, flame retardants, and custom colors making it one of the most versatile materials on the market today!

PROPERTIES OF SILICONE

Other advantageousproperties of Silicone include:

    - Unaffected by UV light or ozone
    - Very low flame rating
    - Does not support flame
    - Non-toxic combustion by-products

Silicone has excellent chemical resistance to the following:

    - Acids
    - Bases
    - Solvents
    - Chemicals
    - Oil
    - Water
