We sell Silicones !
Silicone compounds are available to suit your specification, your process, or
both! High consistency grades tailored for custom molding and liquid
silicones for high speed automated injection are really just a call away.
Fabric coating formulas, roll covering materials and silicones for wire & cable
or other extrusion processes have been developed to match a myriad of industry
specifications. Silicones for silk screening are now available that can be
processed using conventional equipment and techniques. Silicone RTV is
used for conformal coating and potting in electronics - grades range from
condensation cure to UV curable. The list of types of silicone available
is extensive. Give us a call for information related to your needs.
These materials have some extreme differences and some obvious similarities
with other elastomers.
Usually measured on the Shore "A" hardness scale
Usually processed on very similar equipment, both for mixing and
Silicones often have lower physical properties at room temperature
Non-Silicones often have lower physical properties at extreme
temperatures than silicones
Silicones are inherently good at resisting UV & Ozone -
Non-Silicones typically have to be specifically formulated to offer
Silicones exhibit poor abrasion resistance at room temperature but
are hard to beat at 450° F
Silicone is usually available in all
colours but black - special black pigments can be used but most times black
is avoided as a silicone pigment
Non-silicones are usually available in
