Silicone rubbers have properties of both inorganic and organic materials. They are composed of unique silicone gums and high-purity silica. Silicone rubbers offer many outstanding features not found in other organic rubbers.
Silicone rubber compounds have superior oil resistance at high temperatures. They also have outstanding resistance to solvents and other chemicals, and are nearly impervious to polar organic compounds and dilute acids and alkalis.
