Why choose silicone rubber for LED lighting?

Silicone rubber boasts a host of properties which make it an ideal solution for LED lighting systems. Silicone rubber can withstand extremely high temperatures up to 230°C, making it a perfect choice for high heat resistant lighting. It also has great performance in sub-zero conditions and stays flexible to -60°C. Our closed cell silicone sponge boasts excellent protective properties, capable of meeting IP ratings 1P66 and IP67, ensuring sealing to the very highest standards, low water absorption and low risk of water and dust ingress.

Extreme Temperature Resistance

Silicone rubber boasts extreme temperature resistance from 230°C to -60°C together with chemical stability and low compression set. Performing comfortably with high heat generated from the diodes and being able to stay flexible in sub-zero temperatures, silicone is a highly reliable and robust choice for a cast range of LED lighting projects.


Silicone rubber is the ideal choice for LED lighting applications due to its superb sealing properties. It prevents water, moisture or dust ingress from occurring within electrical enclosures, making it a reliable and high-performing option.


Silicone is a highly-robust material offering excellent environmental resistance from ozone, oxidation, ultraviolet light, corona discharge, cosmic radiation, corona discharge, ionising radiation and general weathering.
