Silicone Rubber Advances

Silicone rubber is one of the most versatile materials on the planet. It was first introduced in the 1940’s and has been developed over time to be particularly heat and cold resistant. In addition, silicone rubber is chemical resistant, making it suitable for many applications where it is important that it not be permeated by chemicals.

Today, there are a wide variety of rubber silicone products, including BISCO® silicone foams, as well as silicone rubber both available in rolls. The wide range of choices in silicone rubber allows it to be used in many different industrial applications.
