Not all applications are useful with materials like EPDM, Neoprene and Nitrile. The alternative option is Silicone. 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.
There are a range of silicone rubbers available that also promote required properties, allowing them to be classed as 'Food Grade' materials. We hold a huge library of available profiles for silicone extrusion.
At Walker Rubber we have, a selection of standard profiles for you to choose from. If our standard profiles are not a match, then we can create a bespoke extrusion profile for you with our machine tooling capabilities.
Typical applications for Silicone extrusion profiles include:
- Food Grade
- Door seals
- Hatch seals
- Container door seals
Features of our Silicone Extrusions include:
- High levels of water and flame resistance
- Very low chemical reactivity
- Great gap sealing properties
- Excellent thermal stability
- Flexibility and elasticity
- Withstanding high and low temperatures. (-40° to + 90°C)
