Silicone (VMQ)


Silicone is renowned for it’s retention of flexibility and low compression set characteristics. Silicone offers wide temperature ranges, making them ideal for demanding applications. However, due to their poor tensile strength, and low tear resistance, Silicone o’rings should be used for static sealing.

Our Silicone is available in White, Red and FDA Approved compounds.
