Silicone Sponge Rubber is designed for high performance gasketing, thermal shielding, vibration mounts and press pads. It is available in six constructions. (see below)
R10470 – is a general-purpose silicone sponge, can be used in most applications.
R10480 – has extremely low compression set and maintains its resiliency even under extended compression.
R10460 – silicone sponge rubber is flame retardant. When held in a vertical position and exposed to a 2,000°F flame for 12 seconds, there is no residential flame and less than a 10 second afterglow. Like R10480, it is especially resistant to compression set.
R10450 – with fiberglass reinforcement is a unique construction. It has the compressibility of sponge, plus dimensional stability in the X-Y direction. The absence of stretch contributes to the consistent size and shape of die cut parts and eliminates outward extrusion under pressure.
R10490 – can be used as a gasket where it is necessary to contain fluids that would degrade normal silicone sponge and solid materials (special order basis).
R10404 – is designed for use where both conformability and heat transfer are necessary, such as between printed circuit boards and heat sinks, decal transfer or applying heat activated adhesives.
