The demand for high-performance materials increase
As transportation become faster, more reliable and more efficient, the demand for high-performance materials increases.
Silicone rubber easily meet these demands by delivering the strength, durability and safety needed in sectors such as train locomotives and carriages, marine vessels, public transportation and heavy goods vehicles.
Silicone rubber’s adaptability to meet precise or varying engineering challenges makes it suitable for applications requiring innovative approaches.
Today, the transportation industry strives to improve safety, reduce pollution and maximise energy efficiency.
Silicone rubber has enabled successful implementation of compact systems such as engine compartments that minimise waste and maximise energy efficiency.
Silicones help maintain the structural integrity of a vehicle, helping to ensure all components are secure and resist corrosion from temperature fluctuations, moisture, salt and fuel.
Silicone rubbers can be applied to a wide range of applications in this sector, utilising their generic properties. But Silicone Engineering makes silicone even more efficient for specific industries.
For the mass transit sector, a low smoke and toxicity grade has been developed to enhance public safety.
As well as producing this special material, Silicone Engineering has a wide range of generic grades to be extruded as profiles and sections for seals and fabricated gaskets and as sheet products for converting into punched gaskets and washers.
Typical uses for silicone in this sector: ABS control systems, air filters, airflow sensors, airbags, cables, central-locking mechanisms, damping media, distributor caps, door-lock shock absorbers, electronic components, foam insulation, gaskets headlamps, ignition cables, noise damping, protective caps, radiator seals, radiator hoses, seals, shock absorbers, sunroofs, thermal insulation materials, turbo-charger hoses, ventilation flaps, weather strips and windscreen wiper blades.
Silicone Engineering manufactures food grade silicone in many formats to suit various requirements and is fully compliant with FDA regulation 21CFR177.2600, EC1935/2004 and WRAS.
