Silicone rubber is a special synthetic elastomer formed by mixing linear polysiloxane with reinforcing fillers and vulcanizing under heating and pressurizing conditions. It perfectly balances mechanical properties and chemical properties, so it can meet the requirements of many demanding applications today.Silicone rubber excels in the following areas:
- High and low temperature stability
- Inert (tasteless and odorless)
- Transparent, easy to color
- Wide range of hardness, 10-80 Shore hardness
- Chemical resistance
- Good sealing performance
- Electrical properties
- Resistance to compression set
In addition to the above-mentioned excellent performance, compared with conventional organic elastomers, miscellaneous parts of silicone rubber are particularly easy to process and manufacture. Silicone rubber is easy to flow, so it can be molded, calendered, and extruded with low energy consumption. Easy processing means high production efficiency.
Miscellaneous pieces of silicone rubber can be provided in the following form:
- Rubber compound: This ready-to-use material can be colored and catalyzed according to your processing equipment and end use. Base material: This type of silicone polymer also contains reinforcing fillers. The rubber base material can be further mixed with pigments and additives to form a rubber compound to meet your color and other manufacturing requirements.
- Liquid Silicone Rubber (LSR): This two-component liquid rubber system can be pumped into appropriate injection molding equipment, and then heat cured into molded rubber parts.
- Fluorosilicone rubber compound and base material: Fluorosilicone rubber maintains many key properties of silicone. In addition, it also has excellent chemical, fuel and oil resistance.
