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 [...]
