Silicone Gaskets and Seals Resist Flame, Smoke, and Toxicity
Wed, 08/27/2008 - 5:38am
Custom fabricated cellular silicone gaskets and seals for critical applications have been introduced. They are custom fabricated from open and closed cell substrates to match specific sealing, cushioning, vibration isolation, and insulation requirements in critical applications. Featuring UL 94-0 HF-1 approvals and meeting ASTM specifications for flame spread, smoke density, and low toxic gas emissions, they are offered in a wide range of densities, thicknesses, and colors. Designed to operate from -67°F to 400°F, gaskets and seals are resistant to most chemicals and solvents, provide superior compression-set resistance, and come in various grades of closure force from very soft to extremely firm.
