Dust Covers and Boots

Seal and protect lubricated mechanisms with silicone rubber

For durable dust covers and boots on your chassis, brake, actuators and control cable housings, try proven Silastic® brand silicone and fluorosilicone elastomers from Dow Corning.

Durable silicone and fluorosilicone dust covers and boots

Silicone elastomers can help deliver the long-term sealing reliability you need to:

  • Keep lubricants in place
  • Protect critical components from dust, dirt, water, road salts and other contaminants
  • Extend the service life of lubricated chassis and brake mechanisms
  • Reduce service requirements for component replacement or adjustment

Silicones can outperform many organic elastomers in harsh environments
Dust covers and boots fabricated with Silastic elastomers:

  • Maintain flexible, durable sealing strength without softening, hardening or cracking from age, thermal stress or severe-duty operation
  • Withstand higher under-body temperatures and perform over a wider temperature range than many organic rubbers can handle – from -40 to 200°C (-40 to 392°F)
  • Resist degradation from engine fluids, solvents and environmental contaminants

Extend your options for productivity, cost and performance
