Redco™ Commercial Grade Solid Silicone Rubber
Commercial Grade silicone sheeting (Redco™ CG-SS60 and Redco™ CG-SS85) is designed to be used in applications where physical properties are not critical but extreme temperature resistance and reliable performance are still needed.

Silicone rubber has the combined properties of resilience, high temperature stability, and general inertness unavailable in any other elastomer. Silicones are generally unaffected by extended exposure to temperatures from -75º up to +232ºF and are also resistant to aging and degradation from sunlight and ozone. Silicone is a polysiloxane chain. Unlike other rubbers, its molecular matrix does not contain carbon, but consists of silicone and oxygen atoms. It can be formulated to achieve flame resistance, electrical or thermal conductivity, electrostatic dissipative (ESD) as well as FDA and medical compliance. Redco™ Sponge Silicone Rubber (Redco™ CCF Sponge) is also available.
