Silicone for Automotive Sealing & Protection
Silicone rubber delivers the strength, resistance and durability required for reliable automotive applications.
As consumers demand a boost in power and performance, the heat increase that is generated is a factor that engineers must consider and manage, and this is where a quality engineering specialist comes into play.
Automotive manufacturers rely heavily on the quality and performance of rubber materials and, with increasing heat present in new vehicles, silicone rubber comes into its own, offering the perfect solution.
Due to the temperature rise, there has been an increase in silicone usage being used in new vehicles as EPDM gets replaced, due to its inferior temperature performance (140°C max).
With extreme temperature resistance from -60°C to 230°C and outstanding weathering properties, silicone rubber can extend the service life of automotive assemblies. Its resistance to rain, wind, salt, abrasion, ultraviolet radiation and chemicals make silicone the material of choice in the automotive sector.
Silicone Engineering is an engineering technical specialist and is firmly in the driving seat, leading the way in silicone solutions for the automotive industry.
