Silicone Rubber

Overview   


Silicone rubber is physiologically inert, thus making it the preferred choice of the medical, pharmaceutical and food processing industries. Silicone has comparatively low mechanical properties, tensile strength, elongation and tear strength, though, it keeps constant even at high temperatures. High-pressure steam should be avoided. Its resistance to oil and hydrocarbon products is fairly limited and similar to that of Chloroprene rubbers. Silicone has a reasonable resistance to a wide range of general chemical products, but acids, alkalis, esters and kerosene should be avoided. Silicone has excellent resistance to heat (dry air), at + 392°F intermittent and it remains flexible at low temperatures of -94°F. It is also resistant to ultra-violent light, ozone and weathering. Silicone exhibits low inflammability and low smoke toxicity and it has good electrical insulation properties.
