Silicone rubbers are flexible at low temperatures and resistant to heat and aging (UV, ozone and radiation). They are easy to process and have good mechanical properties that remain unchanged over a wide temperature range. Moreover, they have a neutral taste and a low environmental impact. As the properties of the silicone rubbers can be varied within wide limits, developers can tailor them to all kinds of applications and adjust them in response to growing technical requirements – this has been a key factor underpinning the success of the ELASTOSIL® brand. Aside from tried-and-true silicone sealants widely employed throughout the construction industry, the portfolio contains highly specialized rubber grades, such as extremely heat-resistant and high-tear-strength grades. Various self-adhesive, electrically conductive, low-friction and magnetic silicones are also available.
