Withstand temperature extremes

Resist searing heat and freezing cold.
If you are manufacturing or designing a product that must retain its physical properties through heat, cold, or extreme shifts in temperature, depend on the proven performance of SILASTIC® brand and XIAMETER® brand silicone elastomers from Dow Corning.

Silicone elastomers have a wider operating temperature range than most organic elastomers. They:

  • Are more resistant to degradation – the loss of physical property performance when exposed to high or low temperatures
  • Do not become soft and irreversibly deform when subjected to temperatures >100°C (>212°F)
  • 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 at higher temperatures

Meet a wide range of global industry specifications and performance tests
Silicone elastomers can be tailored or custom compounded to meet a wide range of temperature resistance requirements, including high heat, heat aging, fire resistance, and flame retardancy.
