Silicone Sponge Rubber & Silicone Foam Rubber Gasketing
Flexible, compressible closed cell silicone sponge rubber is suggested for high performance gasketing, thermal shielding, vibration mounts, and press pads. Our general purpose silicone sponge rubber gasket material is available in three grades of compressibility, determined by compression deflection, and in four constructions. R10470 silicone sponge is a general purpose silicone sponge rubber product that can be used in most applications. R10480 silicone sponge has extremely low compression set and will maintain its resiliency even under extended compression. R10460 silicone sponge is flame retardant. With R10460 silicone sponge held in the vertical position and exposed to a 2,000 degree flame for 12 seconds, there is no residual flame and less than a 10 second afterglow. Like R10480, R10460 is especially resistant to compression set. R10450 fiberglass-reinforced silicone sponge is a unique construction. It has the compressibility of sponge, plus dimensional stability in the X-Y direction. The absence of stretch contributes to the consistent size and shape of die cut parts and eliminates outward extrusion under pressure.
