Ensure reliable fluid, air, and material delivery

Ensure reliable fluid, air, and material delivery
through heat, cold, pressure, fuel, oil, and chemical attack.

Are you manufacturing or specifying elastomeric hoses, tubing, rollers, conveyors, or other delivery devices that must perform in challenging operating or processing environments? If your elastomeric delivery system must:

  • Reliably transport fluids, air, gases, food products, or manufacturing materials
  • Withstand a wide range of temperatures, from cold to hot and back again
  • Maintain its integrity under heat aging
  • Resist steam, chemical solvents or cleaning agents
  • Remain impervious to fluids, oil, combustion by-products, or coolants
  • Mechanically resist pressure
  • Meet specifications for flame resistance, low smoke, or low toxicity
  • Or comply with food-contact regulations

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

Meet the unique requirements of your application

Silicone elastomers and fluorosilicone (FSR) elastomers:

  • Have a wider operating temperature range than most organic elastomers
  • Resist steam
  • Give you flame-resistant and low-smoke, low-toxicity options, as well as FDA and food contact choices
  • Plus, FSR elastomers resist chemical solvents, fuels, and oils that would quickly degrade organic elastomers

This makes them the ideal choice for food and beverage delivery tubing and hoses; conveyor belts; industrial rollers; and automotive powertrain hoses, including fluid delivery hoses, air delivery hoses, turbocharger hoses, high-temperature hoses, and coolant hoses.

Give yourself more manufacturing flexibility

Silicone elastomers can be easier to process than organic elastomers. They also give you more flexibility in your choice of manufacturing method, including extrusion, co-extrusion, and molding.
