Silicone Sheeting INFO PAGE

Silicone Foam Product

Silicone foam is a synthetic rubber product used in gasketing, sheets and firestops.

A gasket is a seal which fills the space between two or more mating surfaces, generally to prevent leakage from or into the joined objects while under compression.
Gaskets allow to seal "less-than-perfect" mating surfaces on machines or parts where they can fill irregularities. Gaskets are commonly produced by cutting from sheet materials.
Silicone is an excellent gasket material in many industries and applications such as gaskets used in automotive engines, transmissions, and other applications such as LED street lights, Mobile telephones, Tablets, and many other applications due to its ageing characteristics. It is totally water resistant, Silicone does not degrade with UV light, and is capable of withstanding many chemicals and has a remarkable temperature rating without suffering any dimensional changes. Silicone foam and sheets can be produced to be oil resistant also.

Silicones are used where durability and high performance are demanded of components under hard conditions, such as in space (satellite technology). They are selected when a wide operating temperature range is required (?65 to 315 C). Silicones also have the advantage of little exothermic heat rise during cure, low toxicity, good electrical properties and high purity.

Silicone Foam:
Silicone foam has been used in buildings in an attempt to firestop openings within fire-resistance-rated wall and floor assemblies to prevent the spread of flames and smoke from one room to another. When properly installed, silicone-foam firestops can be fabricated for building code compliance. 


Silicone firestops are also used in aircraft.
