Silicone Gaskets

We have on stock and cut wide variety of silicone rubber gaskets.  Silicone has excellent weathering properties and handles both hot and cold temperature extremes; resists ozone and oxygen attack.  A long service life can be expected in the range of 93°C to 204°C. We cut silicone rubber gaskets from silicone sheet. 

Because silicone gaskets are odorless and tasteless, they are ideal for certain surgical and food processing applications. Typically heat resistant and rubber-like, Silicone rubber gaskets are used in a variety of industries including:

 

  • The silicone gaskets cut by us are excellent electrical (insulators)
  • The VMQ gaskets are perfect for use with office machines (keyboards)
  • Surgical & Food Processing (application requiring high biocompatibility)
  • The FDA approved material properties of the silicone gaskets means that they are safe to use in the food industry
  • Silicone gaskets are used in the chemical industry

The VMQ silicone gaskets themselves have poor resistance to oils, fuels, and hydrocarbons.  The gaskets made of silicone have fair performance when exposed to acids, alkalis and solvents.  The silicone gasket has fair physical properties (tensile, abrasion, tear and cut growth).

Silicone gaskets

  Silicone gasket sheet material is a very versatile material ideal for a wide range of applications. Silicone rubber gasket material offers temperature resistance, weather (UV and ozone) resistance, and fire resistance . Silicone gasket material has very good compression set resistance allowing it to maintain a proper seal over many years. S..
