American Flexible Products uses high quality Bisco silicone for their custom-made silicone rubber gaskets and pads.
Silicone rubber is generally non-reactive, stable, and resistant to extreme environments and temperatures from -55 °C to +300 °C while still maintaining its useful properties. Due to these properties and its ease of manufacturing and shaping, silicone rubber can be found in a wide variety of products.
Silicone Rubber applications:
- automotive applications
- food storage products
- medical devices
- home repair and hardware
Custom Silicone Rubber Gaskets and Pads
American Flexible can convert silicone rubber into custom made silicone gaskets and pads for your application.
Silicone rubber is a material of choice in industries when retention of initial shape and mechanical strength are desired under heavy thermal stress or sub-zero temperatures. Silicone rubber is highly inert and does not react with most chemicals.
Due to its inertness, it is used in many medical applications. It is biocompatible, hypoallergenic and non-allergenic, which makes it suitable for baby care products, and food contact in general. Silicone rubber is a reliable solution because Its chemical stability prevents it from affecting any substance it is in contact with (skin, water, blood, active ingredients, etc.).
Temperature extreme stability is silicones most outstanding property. Under normal operating conditions temperatures as high as 600 F and as low as -150 F do not destroy the physical and electrical properties of silicone
Properties – UV, ozone, long life, high energy return, and low compression set, wide temperature
Forms – solid liquid silicone rubber (LSR), solid gum, expanded foam, expand sponge, electrically conductive, thermally conductive
