Silicone rubber

Resistance to hot air and flexibility at low temperatures.

Silicone rubber (VMQ, PVMQ)

Silicone rubber is a derivative of quartz rock combined at high temperatures with carbon. It is considered a good electrical insulator and burns with difficulty in contact with flames.

It has excellent resistance to hot air and maximum flexibility at low temperatures. The resistance of this rubber to ozone, weathering, saline environments and UV radiation is outstanding.

Silicone available for production at ECATEC: standard insulating silicone (MVQ), conductive silicone, corona treatment silicone, vapour resistant silicone, fluorosilicone (FVMQ), very high temperature silicone (THT), very low
temperature silicone (PMVQ), and platinum silicone.

The standard silicone is translucent with 65 Shore A hardness.
