What Are Silicone Sponges?
Silicone sponge is an elastomeric material, expanded during the heat-curing stage, which in return creates the closed cell structured sponge, which is low toxicity and CFC free which makes it an environmentally friendly material. Silicone Sponge is a highly versatile material, which can be used in place of its solid rubber variant, where a softer, conformable material is needed, designed to offer exceptional sealing, cushioning, vibration insulation and insulation properties.
Why Use Silicone Sponges?
Silicone sponges offer superior mechanical properties and many of the performance benefits of solid silicone, but in a softer and more conformable form, as it has excellent resistance to compress (bounce back to its original shape and thickness).
Silicone sponge also has a wide operating temperature range of around -60C to 260C, resistance to UV and ozone - therefore suitable for outdoor applications and in comparison to other sponge materials offer more strength and durability.
The closed cell structure of this material means it will make excellent sealing components for the prevention of leaks or ingress of air, dus and water, even with fairly low levels of compression.
The Advantages of Using Silicone Sponge
There are many advantages to using silicone sponge in many applications and throughout a range of industries due its durable and rugged nature. Silicone sponge is a closed cell material which means it is water resistant and can be used to create moisture tight seals.
Some of the other excellent properties includes the material wide operating temperature range of -60°C to 230°C, environmental resistant properties meaning it can withstand Ozone, UV and Corona Damage along with general weathering from rain, wind and frost etc where many other materials and rubbers can become brittle and crack.
These excellent features make silicone sponge a great choice for sealing in outdoor applications such as within HVAC units, light and electrical enclosures when a tight water seal is vital. Silicone sponge can be used in thermal insulation applications as well as for sealing and vibration dampening.
The material is manufactured in rolls and sheets in a range of standard thicknesses, but can be split down to non standard ones upon request and can be cut down and converted into a range of finishing usable products including strips, pads, gaskets and washers.
