Silicone Rubber (Si Rubber)

Silicone Rubber (SiR)
Silicone Rubber
Silicone rubber (or Si Rubber) is the most commonly used synthetic ruuber or polymer. This rubber has similar bond structure as found in glass, sand and quartz. Silicone rubber is composed of silicone- which is itself a polymer- together with hydrogen, carbon, and oxygen. This is a unique synthetic elastomer which is made from a cross-linked polymer that is reinforced with silica. The characteristic of silicone rubber is such that it provides the perfect balance of mechanical and chemical properties that is required in today's most demanding industrial rubber applications.

Properties of Silicone Rubber

All types of silicone rubber compounds possess characteristics of both inorganic and organic materials. Due to the versatile properties of silicone rubber, it offers a number of advantages that are not found in other rubbers. Silicone rubbers have fine electrical properties, good chemical stability, flame retardancy, and excellent resistance to heat and cold.
