Working closely with you, at all levels in the supply chain, Silicone Engineering will provide you with the best silicone solution to meet your requirements.
Silicone Engineering supplies silicone rubber products through multiple-levels of the business-to-business (B2B) supply chains.
When supplying products to original equipment manufacturer (OEM) businesses, or to end-users, it is important to have intimate knowledge of the end-use application to ensure silicone rubber products are fit for purpose, cost effective and meet relevant international standards.
Further up the supply chain, products such as silicone sheeting are usually supplied to converters and gasket cutters who, in turn, supply their finished products to the next tier in the supply chain.
Examples of silicone rubber applications
Silicone extrusions are usually used for sealing.
They are heavily used in industries where there are excessive environmental and temperature variations such as door and hob seals in domestic and commercial ovens or lamp gaskets in street lighting.
The robust and inert properties of silicone make it an ideal choice for use as seals or tubing in food and beverage processing machines.
The mass transit, automotive and aerospace markets use silicone rubber because its physical properties make it ideal for use in window seals, carriage edgings and instrument seals.
Silicone extrusions include silicone, tubing, cord, profiles and sections.
Silicone sheeting is used in the production of linings or punched gaskets for use as sealing membranes in many different applications.
Silicone Engineering manufacture sheeting in three formats: solid, sponge (cellular) and supported.
Examples of gaskets made from silicone sheeting products are found in heating systems and chilling systems as well as vacuum and thermoforming applications.
The fabric supported silicone sheeting is used for the manufacture of high performance silicone hoses for the automotive and utilities sectors and for heating technologies in the energy industries.
Washers punched from silicone sheeting are found in industries such as bottling and packaging, and specialist silicone gaskets are found in automotive air bags.
