Red Sponge Silicone Sheeting
Our red silicone sponge sheeting offers a versatile solution with many of the performance benefits found in solid silicone. This expanded closed-cell silicone sponge, in a lighter and more adaptable form, caters to the needs of various industries, including medical, pharmaceutical, and food processing. Most silicone sponge materials on the market are made from polydimethylsiloxane (PMDS) derived from gum.
Every commercially available silicone sponge product is composed of polydimethyl siloxane (PMDS) generated from gum. This polymer is chemically expanded to create the closed-cell sponge structure when subjected to heat. Closed cells mean the cells are interconnected, preventing water from passing through the sponge. Closed-cell silicone sponges typically exhibit superior mechanical properties and a complete cell structure.
The expanded closed silicone sponge offers several performance advantages over the traditional solid silicone, making it an excellent alternative.
Key Advantages of Closed-Cell Red Silicone Sponge:
- Wide Temperature Range: Our silicone sponge can withstand temperatures ranging from -73°C to 200°C. We also offer a high-temperature variant for use up to 270°C; please get in touch with our sales team leader for more details.
- Effective Water Sealing: The closed-cell structure allows for efficient water sealing with relatively low compressive forces.
- Compression Set Resistance: Silicone excels in resisting compression set, particularly at higher temperatures, rebounding to its original thickness. For even better results than general-purpose grades, low compression set silicone sponges are available.
- UV and Ozone Resistance: Silicone products display remarkable resistance to UV and ozone, thanks to their inorganic backbone, ensuring long-term durability.
- Durability: Silicone sponge sheets are more durable than other publicly available options when it comes to resilience.
- Outdoor Gasketing: Considering all these advantages, silicone sponge material is an excellent choice for outdoor conditions, from the Arctic to mountainous regions.
We offer a range of densities, though please note that certain densities may be subject to minimum order quantities.
