• Perfect for both low- and high-temperature applications, silicone rubber boasts of great electrical properties and resistance to ozone attack and weathering. It is not, however, resistant to super-heated steam, and its physical properties are low, although they are retained at higher temps.
  • It is not very resistant to petroleum-based fluids, and its gas permeability is very poor.
  • It is also a very expensive type of rubber to use compared to other types. There are food-quality grades of silicone rubber that are FDA compliant and used in both the food and pharmaceutical industries.
  • Silicone rubber is used in food and baking products, electronics, various medical devices, sealants, hardware products, and some home repair products.
