Silicone closed cell Sponge

Silicone materials have extraordinary properties when exposed to extremes of temperature.

General purpose grades of closed cell Silicone Sponge have excellent high and low temperature performance and stability.

They have low-toxicity and are environmentally friendly being CFC free.

Silicone closed cell Specifications

Standard general purpose grades can withstand temperatures of -60C up to +200C.

With the addition of heat stabilisers this can be increased up to +300C.

Speciality closed cell Silicone Sponge materials are available including the following grades;

  • High Recovery
  • Fluorosilicone
  • Thermally-Conductive.

Materials are available in sheets size 915 mm x 915 mm or rolls size 915 mm wide, dependent upon thickness and grade quality.

Silicone closed cell Capabilities

Silicone closed cell Sponge products have excellent Flame Retardant properties incorporating capabilities allowing conformance to UL94HF1.

Silicone Sponge materials have good resistance to UV and external weathering.

They also have low compression set and good recovery.

Silicone closed cell Applications

Closed cell Silicone Sponge materials can be supplied, with or without self-adhesive, in sheets, rolls, strips or gaskets for use in seals requiring compression to prevent ingress of Air, Dust, Water or Condensation.

They are suitable for use in an extensive range of applications in a diverse range of markets requiring high or low temperature performance, low compression set, good recovery and high flame retardant conformance.

Certain grades of Silicone Sponge are suitable for applications for use in the Food Industry conforming to US FDA 21 CFR 177.2600.
