Silicone rubber is a synthetic rubber with excellent properties: dielectric, resistance to heat, cold, chemicals, ozone, UV and aging. Silicone is non-stick, neutral and non-toxic. It does not corrode or pollute the products with which it is in contact.
Advantages of silicone rubber
- Resistance to extreme temperatures
- Nontoxic electrically insulating
Limits: Avoid contact with petroleum derivatives, ketones, chlorinated, aliphatic or aromatic solvents, concentrated mineral acids. Poor mechanical properties.
Example of silicone applications
- Gasket Medical material
- Clothing protective equipment
- Thermal insulation
- Safety curtain
