Discover kSil™ Silicone Sheeting
At Silicone Engineering, we manufacture our kSil™ silicone sheeting to exacting standards. We achieve these through an extrusion-fed calender method — unlike our competitors, who typically use either a hand-fed calender or extrude the sheet, both of which have restrictions on the capabilities and quality offered.
kSil™ Silicone Sheeting
kSil™ silicone sheeting is designed for high temperature/high pressure gasketing applications where adverse temperatures are present and/or where an inert, robust polymer is required, which is resilient and versatile. Our materials are manufactured in a number of formulations to provide a choice of physical properties and performance capabilities to suit a wide range of applications.
Our kSil™ sheeting offers our customers many additional value-added benefits, such as increased yield, enhanced dimensional controls, and a smooth, consistent finish — which guarantees silicone products with longevity, unrivalled assurance and excellent sealing capabilities.
Our fabric sheeting calender produces supported sheet in various constructions and fabrics. An extruder at the front end optimises quality and consistency, and the line operates to the tightest tolerances, producing outstanding dimensional stability. Meanwhile, the automated rewind station provides complete control to achieve a consistent, neat finish.
Our solid sheeting calenders produce sheeting up to 1800mm wide, with multi-point laser gauges continually monitoring the production process to ensure optimum dimensional stability to the highest international standards. High impingment nozzles are also used to evenly distribute the heat over the entire surface through the oven. This further enhances the quality, technical performance and consistency, resulting in kSil’s excellent sealing properties.
We are the only manufacturer of continuous calendered sponge sheeting in Europe, providing the highest quality calendered sponge sheeting in continuous roll format.
