Silicone Gasket Material
Silicone sheet gasket
material is a very versatile material ideal for a wide range of
applications. Silicone rubber gasket material offers temperature
resistance, weather (UV and ozone) resistance, and fire resistance .
Silicone gasket material has very good compression set resistance
allowing it to maintain a proper seal over many years.
Silicone gaskets offer exceptional high and low temperature
capability while maintaining excellent flexibility. Normally
manufactured by molding or die cutting of sheet stock. Silicone
rubber offers the advantages of lower molding pressures compared to
organic rubber, as well as low toxicity and low odor.
Silicone gasket material
is not recommended for dynamic applications due to it's poor tear
strength and tensile. It does not do well with oils. It does
however do well in most gasketing (static) applications and seals at
lower bolt loads than most rubber materials due to it's low
The temperature range on
most silicone gasket materials is -80o F to +450o
