Flame Retardant Extrusions
There are very few rubber materials that are flame retardant, but our EPDM and Silicone offer low smoke and low toxicity properties.
EPDM is the most popular rubber material that we supply and manufacture. We recommend it highly as it’s out most cost-efficient rubber on the market. It’s also one of the most reliable with high tensile strength, and good abrasion resistance.
Our silicone rubber extrusion range offers an outstanding array of different properties and can be used across a range of different products.
Advantages of using silicone includes high levels of water and flame resistance, very low chemical reactivity, great and tight sealing properties, as well as excellent thermal stability. If you require FDA-compliant material we also have 'Food Grade' rubber.
Typical applications for Flame Retardant Extrusion profiles include:
- Door seals
- Fire safety
- Hatch seals
- Window seals
- Food grade
Features of our Flame Retardant Extrusions include:
- Excellent weather properties
- Excellent Ozone resistance
- Good abrasion resistance
