Protect and insulate critical electrical components

Seal out environmental hazards and ensure reliable electrical connectivity.

Engineering your electrical systems for maximum reliability begins with Silastic® brand silicone and XIAMETER® elastomers from Dow Corning. With intrinsic dielectric protection, silicone high-consistency rubber (HCR) and liquid silicone rubber (LSR) elastomers are ideal for spark plug cables, spark plug boots, and other electrical insulation applications.

Withstand fuel, oil, and solvents

Protect high-voltage ignition cables from fuel, oil, and solvents that would degrade organic rubbers with high-performance fluorosilicone rubber (FSR) elastomers

Improve your manufacturing options and process efficiency

  • HCR elastomers can be extruded or molded 
  • LSR elastomers can be molded, injection molded, or overmolded, enabling process automation to quickly and easily fabricate intricate parts

Ensure protection for your electrical systems
Silicone elastomers:

  • Corona resistance protects from the damage of high-voltage ionization
  • Have a wider operating temperature range than most organic elastomers
  • Withstand rapid, wide temperature fluctuations
  • Can be tailored or custom compounded to meet extreme or extended heat-resistance requirements
  • 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 elongation properties longer than organic elastomers and at higher temperatures
