This material provides excellent flexibility across a broad temperature range (-60°C up to +200°C), as it is a synthetic elastomer manufactured from a perfect combination of silicon, carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen. This rubber offers high release properties and performs exceptionally well when exposed to ozone, weathering, and ultraviolet light. It has a good compression set, is highly resistant to moisture and is an excellent electrical insulator.
It is often manufactured into Silicone Rubber Gaskets for use in high temperature environments or is used to create Silicone Rubber Washers and Quad seals for electrical enclosures. The elastomer can also be used as a liner in prosthetics and is a popular option in the food, drink, and pharmaceutical industries due to its inertness and conformance with FDA food contact regulations. The elastomer is also biocompatible, but is not suitable for use with acids, ketones or petrochemicals and offers poor resistance to abrasion and tear.
Silicone Rubber is also used to manufacture Silicone Rubber ‘O’rings, and Silicone Rubber Sheets etc.
