Heat resistance

FAQ 27.05.2023

Is silicone heat resistant?

Heat resistance, thermal stability and thermal conductivity are three of silicone’s essential features. This means silicone, in a wide range of formulations and formats, is ideal to ensure thermal management in many applications in complex assembly systems, such as engine housings or battery packs for electric vehicle where parts are subjected to high temperatures and wide variations. The heat resistant capacities of silicones are also useful in sensitive electronic parts or in harsh environments.

Silicone provides reliable and durable performance because it remains unaltered over a very wide range of temperatures, from lows of -50°C to highs of 300°C, and over long periods of time. Designed to meet specifications, it improves both industrial processing and the final products produced by manufacturers.
