SILICONE PARTS

Silicone is an ideal material for extremes! High or low temperature requirements, weathering and more!
Silicone is an extremely versatile material and excellent for:
Resistance to ozone
Resistance to sunlight and oxidation
Excellent flexibility at low temperatures
Excellent resistance to extreme temperature fluctuations
Excellent electrical insulation
Superior Color stability
Low compression set

About the Silicone Compound
Silicone compounds would be the preferred choice if you have an application that requires high heat or very low temperatures. It's more expensive than EPDM, but cost is relative to the longevity of a seal or gasket. With some of Lauren's new silicone formulations, cost has become less of a factor.
However, it is not recommended for applications that require abrasion, tear or cut growth resistance or high tensile strength. It is not recommended for resistance to oil, gasoline, solvents, alkalis or acids.
