Silicone materials – An overview
Our products are produced using numerous silicone compounds, in order to meet customers’ individual requirements.
Our standard material, silicone rubber SL 601, is a transparent compound with a hardness of 60° Shore, and is suitable for use in the food industry.
Its thermal resistance is 180° C in continuous use, and up to 250° C in the short term.
Our silicone elastomers can be mixed in any colours:
To meet his/her requirements, the customer can select from various silicone materials with:
- Different Shore hardnesses
- Higher mechanical values, such as tear propagation resistance
- Higher thermal properties
- Increased flame resistance
- Medical-pharmaceutical qualities
The following table provides an overview of our silicone range:
