Flame Retardant Silicone Gasket
Here at Advanced Seals & Gaskets Ltd, we manufacture a diverse range of solid rubber gaskets, including those made using various grades of silicone rubber. One of our more specialist grades of silicone 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 from which gaskets can be cut.
Flame Retardant Silicone Rubber gaskets are produced in-house, meaning we can manufacture bespoke items to match our customer's samples or drawings, from a simple rectangular picture frame gasket to a more complex shape with cut-outs, notches or bolt holes, whether it’s a small sample batch or a multi-thousand run, we have a machine designed to quickly and accurately produce perfectly formed gaskets every time.
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 into gaskets of any shape and in sizes up to 1 meter square in size for single pieces, but for gaskets larger than this, they can be fabrication from multiple sheets and made up in sections and put together in a similar way to pieces of jigsaw puzzles.
What are Flame Retardant Silicone Rubber Gaskets?
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.
Flame Retardant Silicone rubber gaskets can be made in the form of a strip or pad, but are generally an intricately cut shaped piece of material placed between two surfaces to create a low-pressure seal preventing the leakage of liquids or gas and to seal against the intrusion of dust and debris and to reduce excessive movement or vibration between components.

Why use Flame Retardant Silicone Rubber Gaskets?
Silicone rubber materials are excellent for producing high-performance mechanical gaskets and other seals 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 the flame resistant and self-extinguishing properties which means these gaskets can be used with automotive, construction and engineering industries where there is a high fire or flame risk.
Advantages of using Flame Retardant Silicone Rubber Gaskets?
Customers will often choose Flame Retardant Silicone rubber as it has all of the excellent characteristics and properties of standard silicone but are safe to use where there is exposure to flame or extreme heat. 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 so can be used for indoor or outdoor applications, is resistant to 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.
