Silicone Rubber

FAQ 01.05.2023

What is silicone rubber used for?

Silicone rubber, or silicone elastomers, is remarkably versatile and finds diverse applications. Heat Cured Rubber (HCR) silicone excels in demanding environments, offering long-lasting elastomeric, dielectric, and insulation properties. Liquid Silicone Rubber (LSR) is ideal for precision industries due to its high tear strength and thermal resistance. RTV-1 silicone rubbers are versatile in sealing, bonding, and coating applications, even under harsh conditions. RTV-2 elastomers are stable in extreme temperature ranges and are used for electrical insulation and molding applications.

What are Silicones?

What is silicone rubber?

Silicone rubbers or silicone elastomers are a combination of linear silicone polymers, reinforced by different agents, a crosslinker and a catalyst. Silicone rubber offers varying degrees of viscosity and structural features based on how the basic straight-chain silicone polymer molecule has been combined with the processing temperature
