Silicone rubber is an elastomer that is composed of silicon, carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen. It exhibits good resistance to extreme temperatures, working well in temperatures from -148°F to +572°F. It is stable, non-reactive, and exhibits good tear strength and compression set. Silicone is available in a variety of grades that provide specialized properties, such as steam resistance, high tear strength, extremely high or low temperatures, corrosion resistance, and low smoke emissions.

Silicone is used for applications where shape retention and mechanical strength are required in extreme or harsh operating conditions. Silicone is easy to shape and manufacture, and can be easily colored. It is used for a wide range of products exposed to harsh operating and corrosive environments and weather.
