Silicone Greases for Sealing and Insulation

Silicone greases are waterproof lubricants that provide sealing and insulation for mechanical, electrical, military, marine, and many other applications. They’re made by combining a silicone oil with a special thickener, and are supplied in tubes, jars, cartridges, and plastic pails as a translucent, whitish, viscous paste. Many different types of silicone greases are available, so it’s important to select a lubricating compound that’s right for your application. Specialty [...]


Fluorosilicones White Paper for Designers and Fabricators

Design engineers and gasket fabricators like fluorosilicones because these elastomers combine the high and low temperature resistance of silicones with the fuel and oil resistance of fluorocarbons. Yet all fluorosilicone rubber isn’t the same. Some materials meet general-purpose or application-specific sealing requirements. Others are filled with metal-coated particles for EMI shielding. If you need a fluorosilicone for your next sealing or shielding project, what’s the right type [...]
