Silicone Part Manufacturing

Silicone Rubber has a great many variations and can be compounded to meet any number of applications. Minor Rubber manufactures a variety of products in silicone, including grommets. Silicone can be compounded to have tensile in the area of 1500 PSI and tear up to 200 lbs.; low compression set and good resilience; moderate solvent resistance; excellent heat resistance; good release characteristics; extreme low temperature properties; and can be highly resistant to oxidation and ozone attack.

Silicone is generally attacked by most concentrated solvents, oils, concentrated acids and dilute sodium hydroxide.
