Stockwell Rubber Company announces silicone foam gaskets and cushioning pads supplied in custom die cut, water jet cut and slit-to-width configurations. Silicone Rubber generally provides resilience, high temperature stability and inertness unavailable in any other elastomer. Silicone Foams are produced from new liquid silicone rubber technology, and many grades are flame retardant meeting UL94V0 and UL94HF-1. Stockwell provides a full line of silicone foam products in six compression-force deflections, ranging from ultra soft (0.75 psi) to extra firm (18 psi). The thickness range is .032" through 1.0" thick, and special gauges can be attained by bonding layers using low viscosity silicone bonding adhesives. The compression set properties of silicone foam make it suited for shock and cushioning pads in applications where temperature extremes ( 67°F to 392°F) are anticipated.
