Silicone Rubber Cord

Silicone rubber cord is a versatile elastomer known for its excellent temperature resistance, flexibility, and biocompatibility. Here’s an overview of its key features and common applications:

  1. Temperature Resistance: Silicone rubber cord can withstand extreme temperatures, ranging from as low as -60°C (-76°F) to as high as 230°C (446°F) depending on the grade. This makes it suitable for both high-temperature and low-temperature applications, including oven seals, freezer seals, and automotive gaskets.

  2. Flexibility and Elasticity: Silicone rubber cord is highly flexible and elastic, allowing it to conform to irregular shapes and surfaces for effective sealing. It provides a reliable seal even in applications with varying pressures and movements.

  3. Chemical Resistance: Silicone rubber cord offers good resistance to many chemicals, including acids, bases, solvents, and oils. It is compatible with a wide range of fluids and chemicals, making it suitable for use in various industrial and commercial applications.

  4. Weather Resistance: Silicone rubber cord exhibits excellent weathering resistance, ozone resistance, and UV resistance, making it ideal for outdoor applications where exposure to sunlight and environmental elements is expected. It maintains its physical properties and sealing performance over long periods of exposure.

  5. Biocompatibility: Silicone rubber cord is biocompatible and non-toxic, making it suitable for use in medical, pharmaceutical, and food processing applications where contact with human skin or consumable products is required. It meets FDA (Food and Drug Administration) and USP (United States Pharmacopeia) regulations for use in these industries.

  6. Electrical Insulation: Silicone rubber cord is an excellent electrical insulator, providing insulation against electrical currents and protection against voltage leaks. It is commonly used in electrical enclosures, wire harnesses, and electronic devices.

  7. Sealing Performance: Silicone rubber cord provides effective sealing performance in various applications, including sealing doors, windows, lids, and enclosures in automotive, aerospace, construction, and industrial equipment.

Silicone rubber cord is available in various diameters, hardness levels (durometer), and colors to suit different sealing requirements and application specifications. It can be easily cut, molded, or formed to create custom seals and gaskets for specific industrial or commercial applications.
