Flame Retardant Silicone Pads
Advanced Seals & Gaskets Ltd are one of the country’s leading manufacturers and suppliers of quality pads, cut from a range of non-metallic materials including various types of solid rubber, one of our more specialist grades being 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. As we carry out all our conversions on-site, we can cut these down into bespoke sized pads, regardless of the size and quantity of pads required, we have a number of presses, bandsaws or CNC machines that can be used to manufacture the final product.
From one-off samples to multiple 1000 batches runs, which depending on the pad size can be supplied as loosely cut parts or kiss-cut on rolls where a high quantity is required or for use on fast-paced assembly lines.
What are Flame Retardant Silicone Rubber Pads?
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.
Using a selection of in-house machinery ASG can produce square or rectangular pads with the option of radius corners, and also as circular or oval-shaped pads or ‘discs’, in a range of thicknesses. Manufacturing pads in-house means we can offer the option to supply them in a plain or self-adhesive backed finish and even laminate multiple types of material together to create bespoke and unique variations.

Why use Flame Retardant Silicone Rubber Pads?
Silicone rubber materials are excellent for producing high-performance pads 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 meaning pads produced from this material can be used as anti-vibration support underneath machinery, like seals and anti-rattle pads within vehicles where there is a high fire risk.
Benefits of using Flame Retardant Silicone Rubber?
- High quality
- Thermal and noise insulation properties
- Offers resistance to weathering, UV and Ozone
- Easy to fabricate and cut
- Wide operating temperature range
- Can reach -80°C before going brittle
Advantages of using Flame Retardant Silicone Rubber pads?
Customers will often choose Flame Retardant Silicone rubber for the production of pads 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 pads can be found used in many applications where flame resistance is crucial such as components within automotive industries, gaskets, construction and HVAC.
