Silicone Rubber Products: Rubber Tubing and More
If you need a rubber product that can withstand difficult environments, silicone rubber can be an excellent choice for your applications. Silicone rubber offers great resistance in extreme temperatures, being able to operate normally from -100°C to +250°C (-150°F to +480°F). At extreme temperatures, the tensile strength, elongation, tear strength and compression set can be far superior to conventional rubbers. This makes it one of the materials of choice in many extreme environments.
In addition to temperature resistance, silicone rubber offers other advantages, such as insulation from electricity and the ability to repel water. Because of these advantages, silicone rubber is a versatile material for many industries.
Silicone can be used in the production of
Caution: Generally, silicones are attacked by most concentrated solvents, oils, acids and dilute sodium hydroxide.
