Stretch capabilities of silicone gasket materials

Tough gaskets are necessary when your equipment needs to endure extreme conditions for several consecutive sessions. The BISCO RS-700 silicone sponge series is an ideal material for gaskets that need to uphold performance under harsh environments.

RS-700 Characteristics

BISCO RS-700 silicone is able to function under extreme stress and endurance. The RS-720 can stretch up to 175% before any failure occurs within the material. The silicone series will also default to normal shape after being stretched or compressed during use.

The RS-700 series combines abrasion resistance with high tensile strength to create a gasket material that can withstand conditions that many other gaskets may not be able to.
