About Our Silicone Cord
Silicone cord refers to a flexible and cylindrical piece of material made from silicone rubber. It is typically used for various sealing and gasket applications. Silicone cord is known for its excellent temperature resistance, durability, and flexibility. It can be used in some applications, where it serves as a sealing element to prevent the leakage of fluids or gasses. We have various sizes and shapes of silicone cord to suit different sealing requirements and can be easily molded or cut to fit specific needs. And their diameters are from 1mm to 40mm. We also supply many color choices for you like red, black, white, blue, green, clear, orange and so on.
Features of Silicone Cord
Our silicone cords are all made of 100% pure and food-grade silicone, free from BPA, latex and phthalates. Here are some of its key features:
- Temperature Resistance: Silicone cord can withstand extreme temperatures from 250°C to -40°C, without losing its flexibility or physical properties. It remains pliable and effective in environments with temperature fluctuations.
- Chemical Resistance: It is resistant to acids, bases, solvents, and many industrial chemicals, making it suitable for diverse industries.
- Flexibility: Silicone cord is highly resilient, flexible and can conform to irregular shapes and surfaces, providing effective sealing in challenging situations.
- UV and Weather Resistance: Our silicone cords are resistant to ozone, UV radiation and adverse weather conditions, making it suitable for outdoor applications.
- Electrical Insulation: Silicone has excellent electrical insulating properties, making it suitable for electrical and electronic sealing applications.
- Durability: Silicone cord is known for its durability and long-lasting performance, even in harsh environments.
- Low Compression Set: It has a low compression set, meaning it can maintain its original shape and sealing effectiveness over time, even when subjected to compression.
- Easy to Clean: Silicone is easy to clean and maintain, which is essential in applications requiring hygiene and cleanliness, such as the food and medical industries.
- Wide Range of Hardness: Silicone cords are available in a range of hardness levels, allowing for customization to suit specific sealing requirements.
- FDA and USP Class VI Compliance: Our silicone cords are compliant with FDA (Food and Drug Administration) regulations and USP (United States Pharmacopeia) Class VI standards, making them suitable for food, pharmaceutical, and medical applications.
- Good Tear Strength: Silicone cord exhibits good tear strength, making it resistant to damage from mechanical stresses.
Silicone Cord Applications
Normally, people tend to choose silicone cords for high-temperature sealing, door seals, oven seals, lighting gaskets, electrical enclosure seals, automotive enclosure seals, glass and shower door seals, and HVAC seals because they can be formed into rings or molded into specific shapes and dimensions.
Silicone cords can also be used in various industries, such as the food industry, chemical industry, semiconductor industry, petroleum industry, aerospace industry, jewelry industry, medical technology, sewage disposal industry, steel industry, textile and fashion industry.
