Silicone Rubber for Gaskets and Seals

For die cut gaskets and seals, silicone rubber is a unique, extremely flexible synthetic elastomer. It is also versatile and easy to color, making it simple to manufacture.

High-quality silicone rubber gaskets and seals are resistant to aging, heat, and sunlight, as well as many oils and chemicals. Silicone rubber is suitable for rubber components used in high temperature environments.

In addition, silicone can be exposed to wind, rain and UV rays for extended periods of time with virtually no change in its physical properties. Additional material properties include:

  • High and low temperature stability
  • Compression resistance
  • Tear strength
  • Varying degrees of hardness and softness
