Seals & Gaskets

WACKER silicone rubber offers excellent sealing and adhesive properties, are fire resistant (low smoke gas toxicity), have excellent durability, thus providing functional safety for occupant protection. In the engine compartment our products reliably seal under demanding conditions such as high temperatures and constant vibrations.

Benefits:

  • Fuel, oil and chemical resistant
  • Oil-exuding
  • Flame resistant
  • High resistant over a wide temperature range (from -90 °C to +300 °C)

Applications:

  • Molded seals
  • Engine gaskets
  • Oil-pan seals
  • Coolant-system seals
  • Sealing mats used in multipin plugs, and for single-wire seals

Benefits:

  • High process flexibility
  • Easy processing
  • High cost-efficiency
  • Option for nondestructive disassembly
  • Integrated gasket

Applications:

  • Radiators and water pumps Housings for electronics
  • Sound and heat insulation
  • Shock and vibration dampers

Compared to inserted gaskets, FIPG do not require the joint parts to have such high dimensional accuracy. In addition, the cured gasket material stays firmly in place without fixing. Both permit simpler parts design and reduce development costs.

Benefits:

  • Bonding efficiency
  • High joint reliability
  • Uniform stress distribution
  • Perfect stress relaxation
  • Versatile applicability
  • Cost effectiveness

Applications:

  • Oil pan
  • Bed plates
  • Water pump
  • Intake manifold
  • Gearbox sealing
  • Electrical control devices
