Silicone rubber is a tough but flexible substance, in contrast to silicone sponge which is relatively soft. A silicone rubber roll can be supplied in sizes ranging from 1.2m to 10m and thicknesses which include 0.3mm, 0.5mm, 0.8mm, 1mm, 1.5mm, 2mm, 3mm, 4mm, 5mm, 6mm, 8mm, 10mm and 12mm. It is also available in a range of colours such as Red Oxide, White, Black and Translucent. Although these are the most popular colours, ASG can also provide silicone rubber in other colours, although minimum order quantities may be applied.
The popularity of silicone rubber is built upon the fact that it is resistant to UV light and ozone, as well working at temperatures in excess of 200c and being available as a fire retardant material and one which is manufactured to food industry requirements.
