Silicone

Silicone rubber is best known for its high temperature capability (450°F) in dry heat applications. Silicone has excellent resistance to ozone, weathering and aging. Compared with most other sealing elastomers, the physical properties of silicones, such as abrasion resistance, are poor.

  • Temperature: -65°F (-54°C) to 450°F (232°C).
  • Suggested uses: High and low temperature gases. Ozone/weathering. Static seal only.
  • Not suitable for: Petroleum, Ketones.
