Product Information

Versatile Silicone foam(Vinyl Methyl Silicone–VMQ) rubber

The silicone foam-rubber has excellent resistance to temperature extremes. The material is very soft, has very good stress relaxing properties, it is easy to re-shape. It is self-extinguishing and very durable, even in outdoor-use. Silicone foam-rubber has a very good resistance to sunlight, ozone, oxygen and gases. The silicone foam-rubber possesses good electrical insulation properties, water repellency, does not oxidize and is completely toxin-free. However, it has poor tensile strength, tear, abrasion and steam resistance. Temperature range -70°C to +200°C.

The sheets and strips are used for sealing two surfaces or gaps in a specific appliance. Various industrial sectors use our products from construction and electrical to lighting and automotive Companies. Sheets are used for sound deadening purposes, leakage prevention, airflow reduction, packaging purposes as well as insulation, cushioning and shock absorption.

Execution

The Silicone cellular rubber is available in strips, sheets and plates.  The strips are cut by VR Trade at the time the order is placed. This guarantees a good glue layer. The strips, sheets and plates can be supplied with or without one side self adhesive.
