Silicone Profiles / Gaskets
The Production of customer "tailor made" profiles from HCR Silicone rubber is a specialty from Silex.
Besides the "classical" square and round profiles our advanced technology enables us to offer our customers also complex and sophisticated profiles for specific applications.
The extrusion of our profiles is based on our own developed compounds, taking into consideration the Chemical and Physical properties which are needed to accomplish almost every requirement for sealing applications.
Furthermore Silex produce also profiles / gaskets made of 2 different rubbers, so-called "co-extruded profiles". Those products comply with the constant increasing of requirements coming from new complex engineering. In general co-extruded profiles are made of 2 colours or 2 different products. The combination of solid / sponge and electrically isolating / conductive is also possible.
Dimension (square, round, customised) / limits
|Wall thickness, mm||Width, mm||Height, mm|
|from approx. 0,2||to approx. 200||to approx. 50|
The packaging of the profiles is done according to the customer's specifications. As standard we supply our profiles loose rolled or rolled on coils.
