Silicone Rubber FAQs
What are silicone rubber gaskets and where are they most commonly used?
Silicone rubber gaskets are sealing components made from silicone rubber, a flexible and durable material known for its excellent temperature resistance and versatility. We’ve supplied these gaskets to a variety of industries such as electronics, medical devices, food processing, automotive, and others. These gaskets offer reliable sealing against moisture, dust, chemicals, and even extreme temperature variations, making them a good choice for both indoor and outdoor applications.
How are custom silicone rubber gaskets manufactured?
Data Graphic’s manufacturing of custom silicone rubber gaskets employs a die-cutting processes. Die-cutting involves cutting gaskets from pre-made silicone rubber sheets using precision equipment.
Can silicone rubber gaskets effectively seal against moisture and water penetration/ingress?
For sure. In fact, it’s often an ideal use for these gaskets. Silicone rubber gaskets are known for their excellent water and moisture resistance. They can create reliable seals that prevent water ingress, making them suitable for applications in wet environments, outdoor settings, and industries where water resistance is a top priority.
How long do silicone rubber gaskets last before they must be replaced?
The useful life of silicone rubber gaskets varies widely based on factors such as the gasket’s formulation, application conditions, usage and maintenance. Generally, silicone rubber gaskets exhibit good durability and longevity due to their resistance to weathering, UV exposure, and temperature fluctuations. With proper material selection and design, silicone rubber gaskets can maintain their sealing performance over several years. To maximize the life of these gaskets, we recommend regular inspections and maintenance.
