Silicone Rubber

   
 
Silicone rubber offers good resistance to extreme temperatures, being able to operate normally from -100°C to +250°C. At extreme temperatures, the tensile strength, elongation, tear strength and compression set can be far superior to conventional rubbers. Organic rubber has a carbon to carbon backbone which can leave them susceptible to ozone, UV, heat and other aging factors that silicone rubber can withstand well. This makes it one of the materials of choice in many extreme environments. Silicone rubber is a highly inert material and does not react with most chemicals. Once milled and colored, silicone rubber can be extruded into tubes, strips, solid cord or custom profiles. Cord can be joined to make O-Rings and extruded profiles can be joined to make seals. Silicone rubber can be molded into custom shapes and designs.
 
  Advantages :
Good thermal stability which allows for a large operating range (-100 to 250°C)
Ability to repel water and form tight seals
Good electrical insulation
Low chemical reactivity
Excellent resistance to oxygen, ozone and sunlight
Flexibility
 
  Disadvantages :
Some grades of silicone have poor hydrocarbon, oil and solvent resistance
High gas permeability
Relatively high cost
 
  Applications :
