Developing Silicone Solutions for High Performance Applications
Silicone Engineering has one of the best-equipped and resourced laboratories in the industry. This enables the highest standard of research in silicone polymer technology.
Using Silicone Engineering’s high-quality facilities, and its leading team of experts, you can benefit commercially through increased productivity.
All of our silicone materials are formulated and developed in-house meaning we can make custom solutions for application reuqirements.
Silicone Engineering’s facilities are also used to test and certify all material developments to the relevant international standards before going to market.
High-quality silicone testing
Silicone Engineering conducts controlled testing to comply with guidelines set to international standards.
The laboratory’s key equipment includes a Rheometer, for checking the rheological properties of silicone compounds and curing characteristics and a Tensometer, used to test silicone properties to destruction like tensile strength, elongation to break, tear strength and compression stress strain.
Additionally, other key testing equipment, such as hardness gauges, spectrometer and plasticity tester, to name a few, all assist with quality and process control along with product development integrity.
Our Mission to Innovate
Innovation has been key to Silicone Engineering’s success for over 60 years. With a wide range of specilist grades for varying applications and environments, we continue to look ahead to develop new materials. It is our mission to be creative and to help all our customers stay ahead of their competition, by gaining competitive advantage through the use of our silicone rubber products.
