If you are looking for versatility and temperature stability in your gaskets, silicone is an obvious choice for insulators, seals, keyboards, and other applications. It comes in a range of types to fit nearly every need. It is ideal for those products that require a seal around metal surfaces. It won’t shrink from temperature fluctuations during its lifespan and neither UV rays nor ozone affects it.
The ID Group has the knowledge and expertise to laser die-cut your custom gaskets out of sheets and strips based on your specifications. We can also manufacture silicone gaskets for diameters up to 36 inches.
Not surprisingly, silicone’s versatility lends itself to many applications requiring specific types of gaskets. The most common forms include solid, foam, and sponge gaskets. Each has its own uses and properties. Talk with our team to determine which option suits your unique project type. Here are the three common types of silicone gaskets:
Made by die cutting from continuous rolls of material or molded sheets, solid silicone has a tightly-packed molecular structure. Benefits and characteristics include:
Closely related to sponge, silicone foam gaskets are chosen for their shock absorption properties. Your application can take advantage of these distinctive properties, such as:
For applications that require a flexible gasket that can cushion metal, sponge silicone gaskets are preferred. This type of gasket comes in a variety of densities making for a versatile material:
Silicone gaskets are popular for their versatility and ability to handle heat and cold. Choosing the best form of gasket depends on the application because of the different properties. The team at ID Group can answer all your questions and get you pointed in the best direction for your project.
