BF1000 Silicone Strip
Here at Advanced Seals & Gaskets, we offer high-quality sponge strips, all manufactured using some of the latest state of the art machinery.
BF1000 Silicone sponge strips are one of 1000’s products we are able to produce in-house, which are all made to order, manufactured using one of our many machines including band saws, strippers, log cutters and even presses depending on the size and quantity required - for very small strips in high volume runs, a kiss-cut option may also be available for a quicker turnaround.
BF-1000 strips can be produced in thicknesses ranging from 1.6mm through to 25.4mm, and in any width up to 915mm. On-site production allows us to closely oversee the whole production process to ensure that we constantly produce high quality, competitively priced strips, supplied in a choice of finishes including foils, self-adhesives or laminated with other materials
What are BF-1000 Silicone Strips?
BF-1000 silicone sponge is an extra soft, lightweight and durable material. Although the material is an open-cell, a sufficient level of compression will allow the material to create a moisture, dust and air tight seal.
BF-1000 strips are pieces of the material often cut to a specific width, in pre-cut lengths or continuous coils as requested by our customers.
BF-1000 strips are often used in a similar way to a gasket placed between two surfaces to create a seal, provide cushioning, anti-vibration or insulation.

Why use BF-1000 Silicone Strips?
Customers often choose BF-1000 silicone rubber for their strips due to its number of excellent characteristics and features. BF-1000 silicone rubber strips have a broad working temperature range of -55°C to +200°C for use in hot and cold environments, with high-temperature versions also available for extreme heat.
Silicone rubber strips are resistant to UV, weather and ozone, many chemicals and fungal growth, they also offer excellent tensile strength, tear resistance, electrical insulating properties and are available in a number of grades and thicknesses including food safe and flame retardant types.
BF-1000 silicone sponge is an excellent choice for sealing external enclosures, protection from shock and heat while providing stability, cushioning and anti-vibration. BF-1000 silicone sponge offers excellent recovery, high compressibility so that it can be manipulated to conform to difficult gaps and spaces and is flame retardant.
The Advantages of Using BF-1000 Silicone Sponge Strip
There are many advantages to using BF-1000 silicone sponge strips including the highly efficient sealing capabilities of the material, it offers UV, ozone, weathering and extreme temperature resistance making it suitable for both internal and external use.
BF-1000 is highly compressible allowing for easy manipulation allowing a better fit within variable gaps and shapes, and when enough compression is applied, the open cell material will still form moisture, air and dust-tight seal.
BF-1000 can be easily converted into a range of bespoke shaped strips offering heat, impact and vibration protection which can be used within a range of applications as an electrical enclosure, window or lighting seals, placed within HVAC systems and widely used within the automotive, rail and aerospace industries.
Benefits of Using BF-1000 Silicone
- Highly compressible and adaptable so can be manipulated to fit into awkward gaps
- FDA Approved (white variety)
- Excellent sealing capabilities when under compression
- Flame Retardant to UL 94 / Listed V-0 and HF-1
- Resistant to temperature extremes, UV and ozone
- Excellent compression-set and creep resistance
Different Grades of Silicone Sponge Strip Available
HT-800 is a versatile silicone sponge of medium firmness that offers the lightness of foam along with the sealing capabilities of sponge rubber. It is available in black, grey and red and offers excellent memory and recovery, resistance to UV, ozone and extreme temperatures, is flame retardant to UL94 HF1 and V-0, low smoke and has a wide operating temperature range of -55° to +200°.
Flame Retardant Silicone Sponge is a naturally self-extinguishing material, but certain applications within the aerospace and rail industries require higher standards of self-extinguishing and low smoke emissions found in Flame Retardant Silicone Sponge. This material is UL94-V0 rated, self-extinguishing, resistant to UV, ozone and weathering and offers an extremely wide working temperature range of -60°C - +230°C.
Food Quality Silicone Sponge Rubber is a medium density, closed-cell, FDA approved material. With good thermal insulation, resistance to UV, ozone and weathering, and an operating temperature range of -40°C up to +200°C, this material is suited to the food and drink industry where a soft gasket with a high-temperature resistance is required.
