SILICONE RUBBER SHEETING
Temperature Range: -60° to +500° F
Tensile Strength: 700/650 psi
Durometer Hardness, Shore A: 40/50/60/70/80/90
With the widest temperature range of any of the polymers, silicone
rubber is the solution to many high-temperature sealing, gasketing,
insulation, and emission-control problems. Other colors and translucent
silicone area available.
Silicone rubber has extended resistance to weather, sunlight, moisture,
radiation, oxidation, and ozone. Silicone has good electrical resistance
as well and can be used as insulation.
Silicone Rubber has low-compression set which allows the Silicone Rubber
to return nearly to its original thickness after the load is removed. Silicone
rubber contains no acid-producing chemicals and is noncorrosive, odorless,
tasteless, and nontoxic. Silicone Rubber makes an excellent release surface
and can also be bonded to metal, glass, ceramics, and plastics using silicone
adhesive. Meets spec. ZZ-R-765-B, Class 2A and B. Tensile Strength: for
Durometer 40 and 50, 700 psi; for Durometer 60 and 70, 650 psi. Available
in 40, 50, 60, 70, 80 and 90 durometer. FDA Grade and Medical Grade are
Thickness ranges from 1/32" to 1/2".
SILICONE SPONGE RUBBER SHEETS
Temperature Range: -103° to +450° F
Durometer Hardness: Not Rated
Compression (25% Deflection): 9-14 psi
Resistance to high temperatures makes closed cell silicone sponge ideal for
sealing, insulation, and gasketing. Typical applications include light fixture
seals, vehicle emission control seals, and hot fluid conveyance. Damping
quality makes these sheets excellent for vibration control. Material is a good
release surface-viscous products don't adhere. The sponge is noncorrosive
and nontoxic. It is resistance to moisture, sunlight, and oxidation.
Meets MIL-STD 670-B Grade TE-12 and MIL-R-46089 Grade M. Density
is 0.020 lbs./cu. in. Tensile strength is 100 psi. Available with plain back and
with pressure-sensitive adhesive backing with an easy-release liner.
Thickness ranges from 1/16" to 1/2"
