Silicone Rubber

The high-temperature / low-temperature rubber material

Working Temperature Range:

High: 450°F / 232°C Low: -75°F / -59°C

Silicone rubber is the ideal choice for any product that requires high or low temperature resistance.  Silicone rubber stays flexible and provides excellent compression set across the entire range of temperatures.  Silicone also has an excellent tactile feel for consumer products and is resistant to weather (ozone, moisture, and oxygen).  

Advantages:

  • Excellent extreme temperature properties
  • Good compression set
  • Excellent tactile feel
Disadvantages
  • Poor abrasion resistance
  • Lower / fair tear resistance
