Electrical: Ozone, aging and corona have little or not effect on solid silicone rubber. Electrical strength, power factor, and insulation resistance are retained under elevated temperatures and under conditions where other insulation fails.
Compression Set: Resistance to compression set is the ability of a material to return to its original position after removal of a compressive load. From sub-zero to elevated temperatures, solid silicone rubber exhibits lower compression set than any other elastomer.
Long Service Life: Because of its resistance to the deteriorating effects of sunlight, moisture, radiation, and oxidation at elevated temperatures, silicone rubber's service life at room temperature is virtually unlimited.
Physical: Auburn's silicone rubber contains no acid producing chemicals and is non-corrosive. It is odorless, tasteless and non-toxic. It can be bonded to metal, glass, ceramics and plastics through the use of silicone or acrylic adhesives.
Out-gassing: With solid silicone rubber, there is little or no out-gassing. Auburn can post cure any silicone rubber, using a special procedure, to reduce out-gassing to practically zero.
In addition to commercial grade silicone sheet rubber products, Auburn now offers several new grades of silicone sheet. HS-235, HS255 & HS275 offer unusually good tensile strength and superior tear resistance which are closely interrelated, and, in combination with other excellent physical properties, produce a much tougher, more resilient, harder to tear silicone rubber than heretofore available.EC-102 is an electrically conductive solid silicone sheet that serves as a low amperage conductor, shields RF/EM interference, and protects against electrostatic discharge. FR-320 (AMS-3320) is a high breaking strength solid silicone rubber product that is made from silicone rubber sheet stock with a fiberglass insert. This high quality product far exceeds the requirements of AMS-3320 for breaking strength, oil lubricating resistance and compression set. UL Recognized Silicone is a flame retardant silicone rubber that will pass UL-94 Flame Testing with V-0 rating from 1/8" (0.125") and up.
