American-made BISCO® Silicone gaskets and seals are converted by our technicians and offer great performance for heavy-use gasketing and sealing.
As a certified Preferred Converter for Rogers Corporation, our technicians are materials experts with the full range of BISCO silicone products including brand names like PORON® Urethane and BISCO Silicone, which provide effective and dependable long-term sealing solutions.
These materials demonstrate superior physical properties and performance, with excellent sealing characteristics when compressed. They are also fully certified by UL for flame resistance and superior gasketing. We recommend BISCO material to engineers and specifiers who need a high-performance sillicone seal or gasket.
BISCO silicone materials are used for:
- heat shielding
- fire stops
BISCO foams offer high performance and longevity because they are resistant to ozone and UV, very resilient, have excellent creep resistance and compression set, chemical resistance, and meet stringent flame ratings as specified by UL.
For demanding use
We work with products designed for applications such as extreme temperatures, extra dimensional stability or extra tear strength.
Open and Closed cell
We convert both open and closed cell materials designed for gasketing and sealing applications.
These materials demonstrate superior physical properties and performance and are certified by UL for flame resistance and gasketing.
Specialty BISCO Silicones
We know every gasketing or sealing application is different. Our materials experts always guide you toward the right BISCO silicone product. We also work with solid and specialty BISCO silicone products designed for 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 more.
Open or Closed Cell
We convert both open and closed cell BISCO silicone materials.
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 and 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 and typically rebound faster than closed cell sponges. They are best used for on applications that require cushioning, sealing, and sound and vibration absorption.
