Silicone elastomer is a thermally stable and inert material whose most important properties are:
- Excellent performance at extreme temperatures (-60ºC / + 300ºC).
- Good dielectric properties.
- Good thermal insulation.
- Outstanding atoxicity for food contact products (FDA, BfR).
- Resistant to weather, ageing, ozone, humidity, UV rays, aggressive chemical components, radiation etc.
- Gas permeability.
- Wide range of colours.
It is because of these properties that silicone elastomer is be used in such a variety of sectors: automotive, aviation, rail, cabling and electrics, household appliances, lighting, laboratory and pharmaceutical use, food contact, construction, agriculture and more.
