Silicone Rubber (VMQ)

Silicone rubber is an inorganic synthetic elastomer that is vulcanized creating a cross-linked silicon based polymer that is reinforced with fillers.

Silicone Rubber (VMQ)

A superior combination of mechanical and chemical properties make silicone ideal for a wide range of demanding applications. Excellent weathering and heat/cold resistance with a wide temperature spectrum of -76° to 480° F. Even higher temperature resistance can be achieved with special formulations.

Silicone rubber can be found in a variety of everyday products and applications.

Household and consumer products such as cookware, food storage, textile, footwear, electronics, sporting goods and hardware all utilize silicone rubber to some degree. Colorants can be added to silicone to produce virtually any color.

Because of its excellent physical and chemical performance and ease of manufacture Silicone Rubber is commonly used in a variety of industrial, automotive, healthcare/medical, electric/electronics aviation and construction applications.
