kSil offers all the resilience and versatility of silicone rubber sheet
kSil™VAC Silicone Rubber Sheeting
Using its own brand of kSil™VAC rubber sheeting, Silicone Engineering manufactures incredibly high performance vacuum forming and vacuum bagging membranes.
kSil™VAC is a durable, temperature resistant material, highly effective in the production process of solar panels and other renewable energy sources, as well as serving industries in the Composite sectors such as Aerospace and Automotive.
All silicone is mixed in-house, ensuring kSil™VAC silicone rubber sheeting membranes perform to the highest physical and quality standards, meeting a wide range of customer specifications and requirements.
In its state-of-the-art laboratory, Silicone Engineering rigorously tests each batch before production to ensure customer needs are met.
Silicone Engineering’s capabilities and feature benefits:
- High tear strength
- High elasticity (750%)
- Improved abrasion resistance
- Ability to withstand puncture damage without catastrophic failure
- Durability and Lifespan
- Developed specifically for use as a vacuum bagging material
- Supplied as standard in Translucent Blue
- Capability to colour match if required
This specially formulated material provides excellent elongation and high tear properties, which increases the production lifecycles of the vacuum or lamination process far longer than those experienced by organic polymers.
Silicone Engineering can supply kSil™VAC sheeting up to 1800mm (72”) wide, up to 4mm (5/32”) thick, with roll lengths supplied to customer requirements. In addition to the membrane sheets, there is a wide range of bespoke silicone solutions to service the requirements of the renewable energies sector.
These include precision made extruded silicone profiles and section, seals and gaskets and insulated cables.
kSil™FORM Silicone Rubber Sheeting
Silicone Engineering’s high strength kSil™FORM rubber sheeting is perfect for use in furniture production – for the manufacture of decorative, laminated furniture such as veneered tables, countertops and recessed decorative doors.
kSil™FORM has the same high performance qualities as kSil™VAC but has a lower elongation strength (470%).
kSil™FORM has been specifically developed for the lamination process where elongation and tear strength do not need to be as high, therefore providing a more cost effective solution for the customer, without comprising quality or performance.
