Silicones are manufactured as a Silicone Foam or a Silicone Rubber:
Silicone Gasketing Foams (512AF)
High-performance silicone foams are the ideal solution for demanding gasketing applications due to their unique chemical structure that combines high temperature stability, general inertness, low compression set and a non-stick surface. Their quick compression recovery and weather, moisture, ozone, UV and fungus resistance mean extended service life in outdoor applications, making them ideal for a variety of markets and applications, including military, aerospace, electronics, life science, transportation, LED lighting, electric vehicles (EV) and packaging.
Unique combination of properties
Silicone is the only material that combines high temperature resistance with low compression set and a non-stick surface for outstanding performance in one product
All inherent properties are maintained, and the material remains elastomeric over prolonged exposure to a wide temperature range without thermal degradation, making it the ideal choice even for extreme environments
Resistant against environmental stressors
Excellent weatherability, moisture, ozone, UV and fungus resistance in extremely damp or dry conditions mean extended service life in outdoor applications
Good chemical, fluid and solvent resistance ensures reliable performance while still providing good electrical strength and non-stick properties
At elevated temperatures, our silicone rubber solutions will outgas far less than other silicone elastomers and in case of fire, they will produce a non-conductive white ash and odorless, non-toxic smoke for increased safety
Silicone Adhesive Tapes (R10470)
Silicone adhesive tapes provide all the benefits of our silicone rubber in an easy-to-apply, pressure-sensitive adhesive tape, with options for high and low temperature silicone adhesive or aggressive, strong anchorage acrylic pressure-sensitive adhesive on one side. Conforming to irregular shapes for cushioning and gasketing, these silicone tapes are perfect for applications that are exposed to the elements and require intricate shaping like electronic packaging, aerospace gasketing, gap filling and outdoor lighting.
Features and Benefits
Provided in a roll form
Eliminating the need to die-cut a part, these foam tapes conform to irregular shapes and are repositionable
Strong adhesive options
When considering adhesives, the bonding surface is a critical factor, and these silicone adhesive tapes effectively wet out to LSE plastics; adhesive options include silicone, acrylic and PET reinforced acrylic
Silicone tapes outperform all other elastomer tapes in service of life, weatherability, compression set resistance and electrical resistivity in extreme temperature applications
Wide range of availability
These pressure-sensitive silicone tapes are available in a variety of widths and thicknesses for use in gasketing, cushioning, thermal insulation and vibration dampening applications
Norseal R10470M silicone sponge rubber is a specification grade closed-cell silicone sponge that can be used in most gasketing applications.
