Silicone is any of a class of synthetic materials which are polymers with a chemical structure based on chains of alternate silicon and oxygen atoms, with organic groups attached to the silicon atoms. Such compounds are typically resistant to chemical attack and insensitive to temperature changes and are used to make rubber and plastics and in polishes and lubricants.

Heat Cured Rubber

Heat Cured Rubber is a silicone elastomer formed of straight chains with very high molecular weight. The system will be cured with either an organic peroxide crosslinker, or a platinum catalyst. HCR offers great temperature and aging resistance.

    • Sealing and piping in fluid circuitry
    • Electrical protection
    • Pharmaceutical and biomedical applications
    • Exceptional mechanical strength
    • Enhanced mechanical performance
    • High clarity
    • Low hysteresis and high resilience coupled with low compression set for highly mechanical operations
    • Broad range of durometers
    • Extrusion
    • Calendaring
    • Molding (injection, compression, transfer).

RTV ( Liquid Silicone )

RTV silicone is a liquid silicone compound that cures at room temperature to form a flexible rubber. This can be either an Adhesive Sealant, Moulding Rubber or Electronic Encapsulant Potting Compound. The term RTV is means Room Temperature Vulcanising. It lends itself well to working as a sealer because it is water-repellent, adhesive and holds its shape. It’s most commonly used as a building sealer, especially in bathrooms and kitchens, where most caulking contains RTV silicone.
