New Talcing Process Improves Sheeting Quality

With technology constantly changing, it would be naive to turn a blind eye to new ways in which you can improve production processes which can help raise the quality of your products, regardless of your industry.

At Silicone Engineering, we had always used the more conventional way to talc our silicone sheeting which was a very simple process. An operator would apply talc onto the sheeting and a roller would then coat the sheeting evenly, as shown in the picture below. It

Flexible Silicone Solutions for the Rail Industry

The rail industry has seen vast improvements in both design and passenger safety over the last decade. Advanced interior designs using specialist materials allow rolling stock to become more efficient and more importantly, safer in operation.

Silicone lends itself to being used in a number of applications within the rail industry. Interior applications such as HVAC gaskets, lighting seals, door seals and silicone sheeting for vibration dampening highlights the versatility of silicone and its additional benefits that add to safety.

Silicone Rubber in Aerospace

In an industry with no margin for error, reliable and high performing materials need to be used for the construction of aircraft. Silicone rubber’s versatile properties and its ability to withstand extreme temperatures makes it one of the ideal materials to use in the Aerospace industry.

Due to the fluctuation in temperatures experienced when aircraft are in operation, from hot temperatures on the ground to freezing temperatures at altitude, materials (in this case silicone rubber) need to be able to cope
