Every gasketing or sealing application is different. Our materials experts will always guide you toward the right Bisco silicone product. We also work with solid and specialty Bisco silicone products designed for those demanding applications such as extreme temperatures, or when you need extra dimensional stability or extra tear strength.
In addition to Bisco silicone seals and gaskets, we can also help you specify the right silicone for conductive purposes, sound barriers and much more.
Open or closed cell
At American Flexible we convert both open and closed cell Bisco silicone materials. Again, call us, because you may have a silicone product in mind for your application and it may (or may not!) be just the right silicone for your needs.
Open Cell Sponge gaskets and Closed Cell Sponge gaskets are designed for a wide range of uses, including gasketing and sealing applications. Closed Cell sponges are generally impermeable to water, making these a great choice for water sealing applications.
Open Cell Sponge rubbers are gasketing and padding materials composed of connected cells that allow air or gas to pass through when compressed. These sponges offer good compression set characteristics for your custom applications, and typically rebound faster than closed cell sponges.
They are best used for on applications that require cushioning, sealing and sound and vibration absorption.
