Food Quality Silicone Strip
Here at Advanced Seals & Gaskets Ltd we manufacture and supply thousands of high-quality solid rubber strips, sometimes referred to as gasket strip, sealing strip, isolation strip to name a few. One of our more specialised grades of silicone is Electrically Conductive Silicone Rubber which is manufactured in thicknesses of 1.6mm, 2mm and 3.2mm at 915mm wide, and supplied in 1-meter widths up to 10 meters long from which strips can be converted.
Electrically Conductive Silicone rubber strips are all manufactured by our highly skilled workforce using state of the art machinery, following our customer samples of drawings. We can produce bespoke Electrically ConductiVE Silicone rubber strips using our bandsaws, strippers, log cutters and even presses depending upon the size and quantity required.
In-house production allows us to closely oversee the whole production process to ensure that we consistently produce high quality, competitively priced strips. Our electrically Conductive Silicone rubber strips are cut from rolls or sheets, which are supplied coated with self-adhesive backing or laminated to other materials, which can then be cut into strips in widths starting at 4mm wide and in a choice of 10 meter long continuous coils or pre-cut shorter lengths.
What are Electrically Conductive Silicone Rubber Strips?
Conductive Silicone Rubber is a carbon filled silicone material that acts as a low amp conductor, often used for the prevention and protection of static charge (electrostatic discharge) build-up. The generic term often used to describe a rubber material with conductive properties is ‘conductive rubber’.
These materials and products are used for the purpose of eliminating electromagnetic interference and radio frequency interference (EMI/RFI noise) often found in electronics. Electrically Conductive Silicone rubber strips are cut from sheets or rolls to order, meaning we can supply them to meet your exact specifications in terms of lead time, size and finish.
Electrically Conductive Silicone rubber strips can be used for noise or vibration control applications or as gaskets, placed between two surfaces to create a low-pressure seal preventing the leakage of dust, liquids or gas.

Why use Electrically Conductive Silicone Rubber Strips?
Electrically conductive silicone rubber is made using the same formulation as standard silicone rubber, but incorporating conductive carbon particles throughout the material.
Electrically Conductive Silicone rubber is an excellent material for producing high-performance mechanical sealing strips which can operate at high and low temperatures.
Electrically conductive silicone rubber strips offer weathering, UV and Ozone resistance, so ideal for indoor and outdoor use, have an operating temperature range of -54°C to + 260°, making it suitable for a range of industries and applications including electronic enclosure shielding, and connectors in medical, defence, aerospace and telecommunications.
Advantages of using Electrically Conductive Silicone Rubber Strips?
Customers often seek to use Electrically Conductive Silicone rubber for their sealing and strips needs as it has a number of excellent characteristics and features. Silicone rubber has a broad working temperature range of -54°C to + 260°C for use in hot and cold environments meaning it will not become brittle in freezing temperatures unlike many other rubber materials and is suitable for indoor and outdoor use.
It is resistant to weathering, ozone, many chemicals and fungal growth and offers excellent tensile strength and tear resistance. Electrically conductive silicone rubber strips are relatively easy to cut and can be found used in many applications and industries where electro-static shielding is required including military, defence, medical and telecommunications in the form of enclosure seals, covers, door seals and isolation barriers.
