Low-Durometer Silicones for Sealing and Insulation

Specialty Silicone Products (SSP) supplies low-durometer silicones for medical, military, aerospace, and other demanding applications. These softer elastomers are available in durometers ranging from 10 to 30 (Shore A). Products include platinum-cured, medical-grade silicones; various military and aerospace silicones; and a 30-duromter EMI shielding silicone that’s filled with silver-aluminum particles.  SSP supplies these and other silicone elastomers as continuous rolls, molded [...]


Silicone Rubber with High Flex-Fatigue Resistance

Silicones resist a wide range of service temperatures, but they don’t always offer strong flex-fatigue resistance – a measure of an elastomer’s ability to withstand repeated flexing or bending. Flex-fatigue resistance is an important requirement for military and aerospace applications, however, so design engineers and technical buyers need to source silicone rubber with care. High temperatures, harsh environments, and excessive cycling can also contribute to elastomeric [...]
