Flame Retardent Silicone Rubber
Here at Advanced Seals & Gaskets Ltd, we offer a vast range of high-quality solid rubber materials, including various specialist grades of silicone, one of which is Flame Retardant Silicone Rubber. Flame retardant silicone rubber is manufactured in 1-meter x 1-meter sheets, in a range of standard thicknesses between 1mm and 8mm.
As our onsite facilities house a range of state of the art conversion machinery including a range of presses, CNC machines, slitting machines and log cutters, enabling us to take these sheets and cut them in various parts including cut strips, pads, washers and gaskets for use in a multitude of applications.
What is Flame Retardant Silicone Rubber?
Silicone (SI) rubber is available in various grades including those formulated for use in specific industries, requiring additional properties such as Flame Retardancy.
Flame Retardant Silicone rubber can be used for direct heat and flame applications, offering self-extinguishing properties (at 3mm thick) and meets the following standards: UL94V0 flammability standards.
It also conforms to BS6853, Cal 1A as well as TS EN 45 545-2 safety standards.

Why use Flame Retardant Silicone Rubber?
Silicone rubber materials are excellent for producing high-performance mechanical seals and gaskets which can operate at high and low temperatures with a working temperature range of -55°C to + 230°C, whilst performing well when exposed to UV, weathering, ozone and moisture.
Flame retardant silicone rubber is made using the same formulation as standard silicone rubber, but incorporating additives to give the material flame resistant and self-extinguishing properties.
Advantages of using Flame Retardant Silicone Rubber?
Customers will often choose Flame Retardant Silicone rubber as it has a number of excellent characteristics and properties, suitable for internal and external applications.
Flame retardant silicone rubber has a wide operating temperature range of -55°C to + 230°C, meaning products can be used in hot and cold environments and will remain stable.
This material is resistant to weathering, ozone, many chemicals and fungal growth and offers excellent tensile strength and tear resistance.
Flame retardant silicone rubber can be found used in many applications where flame resistance is crucial such as components within automotive industries, gaskets, construction and HVAC.
