Water and moisture may be one of the biggest threats to equipment and machinery with sensitive components. When an industrial machine has several moving parts and areas where water can leak in, that moisture can negatively affect the parts that are meant to be kept dry.
Great for gaskets
The BISCO RS-700 Silicone Sponge is an ideal material for gaskets in equipment that may come into contact with water. The closed-cell structure and low compression set gives this gasket excellent sealing capabilities and even help keep out dust.
Each of the three RS-700 grades meets strict UL gasket certification in addition to UL50, UL508, UL157, and UL50E periodic recompression. This gasket material protects against moisture, cold, winds, and heat, stretches under stress, and always bounces back after being compressed.
