Why Choose kSil™ Solid Silicone Sheets & Rolls?
Silicone Engineering’s exclusive kSil™ solid silicone sheeting is resilient and versatile and is fabricated to exacting standards. Importantly, we operate precision delivery systems to ensure the materials are air and contaminant free before being processed on the specially treated calenders. kSil™ is the ideal sheeting material for gaskets and seals used in industrial applications where adverse temperatures are an issue or where an inert, robust polymer is required. All our solid silicone sheeting is FDA approved for use with food and drink contact.
Unmatched Calendering Expertise – Manufactured by the Experts
Using the latest state of the art processing equipment, Silicone Engineering’s kSil™ solid silicone sheeting is manufactured to the highest quality on calendared sheeting lines calibrated to achieve meticulous dimensional precision with a smooth, consistent finish. Equipped with automated laser gauges for the tightest dimensional controls, high impingement nozzles that are used to evenly distribute the heat over the entire surface through the oven, enhancing quality, performance and repeatability. High-specification pre-cure technologies ensure optimum quality at each stage.
Our vast expertise in calendaring silicone sheeting, coupled with the latest processing equipment ensures Silicone Engineering’s sheeting performs to meet your application needs. The thickness of the sheet is controlled along the width and length which provides consistency when kiss cutting and setting parameters upstream giving superior seal properties. Our translucent solid sheet is notably one of the clearest on the market.
Silicone Engineering’s millroom is one of the largest on-site compounding facilities in Europe. It means we have the capacity to kit, mix and produce compounds within hours rather than weeks – even for custom materials – all with full traceability and ISO compliance.
Ongoing investment in industry-leading technology enables us to deliver superior results every time. The Peku talcing module carefully controls the application of talc on to the pre-cured sheet to provide a highly stable, almost talc-free product up to 1800mm wide.
