Silicone rubber strips (also known as tape) are useful for a variety of sealing and gap filling applications, particularly when resistance to chemical or environmental changes, such as extreme temperatures, is important.
Silex stock strips, in solid and sponge silicone, in a variety of hardness’s, densities and material grades to suit all applications. When you require something outside of the range of our standard stock we can manufacture strip to your requirements or offer any of our sheeting slit down to the width you need.
Please enquire for bespoke pricing and current lead times.
Silicone strip can either be extruded or slit from sheeting, depending on the application and requirements. Strip can be slit from any of our stock sheeting to tight tolerances in a matter of days, offering a fast, economical choice for the majority of applications.
For more specialist applications, where suitable sheeting isn’t held in stock, we can extrude silicone strip to your exact specifications.
Sponge and foam options are also available; customers benefit from the choice of Rogers and Bisco flame retardant sponges and foams, or our own general purpose and FDA grades, all available in a variety of densities.
- Square sections – extruded solid silicone in 60° shore A hardness, available in a wide range of sizes.
- General purpose solid strip (slit from sheet) 60° – available in a range of shore hardnesses and colours.
- General purpose solid strip (slit from sheet) 40°- available in a range of shore hardnesses and colours.
- SIL16 sponge strips – medium density sponge, available slit from sheet or extruded. Extruded sponge strip has the benefit of a ‘skin’ on all four sides, making it easy to wipe clean and adding extra protection against dust ingress, but is typically more expensive than the equivalent slit from sheet.
