In these applications one needs a high integrity rubber seal that performs over an extended life, to provide an environment free of surprises or trouble. Our silicone rubber gasket material offers temperature resistance, weather (UV and ozone) resistance, and fire resistance (our materials conform to Low Smoke Low Toxicity requirements). Silicone rubber has very good compression set resistance allowing it to maintain a proper seal over a life span of many years.
Our seals and gaskets are normally manufactured by molding. Silicone rubber offers the advantages of lower molding pressures compared to organic rubber, as well as low toxicity and low odor. For special applications, silicone rubber can be over-molded.
