What Are the Properties of Silicone Rubber?
Silicone rubber is a high-performance elastomer with exceptional properties that make it suitable for various applications across various industries. Here are some of the key properties:
- Temperature Resistance: Silicone rubber has excellent high and low-temperature resistance. It can operate normally within a wide temperature range, typically -55°C to 300°C (-67°F to 572°F), and can withstand even higher temperatures for short periods.
- Chemical Resistance: Silicone rubber is chemically inert and resistant to most chemicals, including water, oils, and some acids. It’s particularly resistant to weathering effects like ozone, UV, and radiation exposure.
- Electrical Properties: Silicone rubber offers exceptional electrical insulating properties. It’s often used in applications requiring high dielectric strength, volume resistivity, and electrical resistance, even at high temperatures.
- Flexibility and Elasticity: Silicone rubber maintains flexibility and elasticity over a broad temperature range and has excellent compression set resistance, meaning it can spring back into shape following reduction.
- Biocompatibility: Silicone rubber is non-toxic, hypoallergenic, and doesn’t support bacterial growth, making it suitable for various medical and food-related applications.
- Low Toxicity and Smoke: During a fire, silicone rubber items do not emit toxic gases and produce very low smoke, which is why it’s often used in safety-critical applications, such as seals and insulation for doors, cables, and lines in buildings and transportation.
- Durability: Silicone rubber is highly durable with excellent ageing properties. It can withstand long-term weathering, UV, and ozone exposure without losing its mechanical properties.
