Silicone O-Rings Description:
Silicone O-Rings contain Silicone rubber, an elastomer composed of silicone—itself a polymer—containing silicon together with carbon, hydrogen & oxygen. Silicone rubber is generally non-reactive, stable, and resistant to extreme environments. Silicones should be considered to be non-petroleum resistant, but useful in specific high anline point petroleum oils.
Silicone O-Rings Properties:
Poor Wear Resistance, Excellent Comp. Set Resistance, Poor Short-Term Resilience, Excellent Permeation Resistance.
Silicone O-Rings Temperature Range:
-65ºF to 450ºF
Silicone Recommended For:
Dry Heat, Wide Temperature Range, Sunlight, Ozone, Weathering, Odorless and Non-Toxic
Silicone NOT Recommended For:
Ketones (MEK), Acids, Silicone Oils, Brake Fluids
