Improve the durability and performance of dynamic and static seals

Extreme performance. Manufacturing flexibility. Compounding expertise.
When your movable parts or the seal on your product, container, connection, or assembly must:  

  • Operate reliably in extreme conditions of temperature, pressure, or chemical exposure
  • Prevent air or fluids like water, oil, fuel, and coolants from getting in or out
  • Maintain its flexibility, resiliency, and ability to transmit mechanical force at both high and low temperatures

You can rely on the proven performance of Silastic® brand and XIAMETER® brand silicone elastomers and custom compounding expertise from Dow Corning.

Deliver the high performance your customers require

Silicone elastomers and fluorosilicone rubber (FSR) elastomers:

  • Have a wider operating temperature range than most organic elastomers
  • Can be tailored or custom compounded to meet extreme or extended heat resistance requirements
  • Withstand many flexing cycles over a wide temperature range
  • Retain their natural flexibility and continue to perform at low temperatures that would cause most organic elastomers to become brittle
  • Resist compression set at both high and low temperatures
  • Maintain their properties longer than organic elastomers at higher temperatures
  • Additionally, Silastic FSR elastomers resist aggressive oils, fuels, and other fluids that would quickly degrade organic elastomers

Give yourself greater manufacturing flexibility, greater efficiency

Liquid silicone rubber (LSR) and fluoro liquid silicone rubber (F-LSR) elastomers improve processing. They enable you to:

  • Use efficient molding and injection molding processing methods
  • Quickly and easily fabricate intricate parts
