Unleashing Potential: Uncover the Design Flexibility of Silicone Foam
Silicone foam products are produced using platinum-cured liquid silicone rubber. The raw compound is expanded and dispensed on a continuous casting line, followed by a heat-curing process. A diverse range of products with varying densities, softness or firmness, and cell structures is possible by carefully controlling the expansion.
The casting process gives silicone foam materials smooth skin on one or both sides. Open-cell silicone foams are commonly employed for cushioning, dust sealing, or providing light water sealing. On the other hand, closed-cell silicone foam materials are ideal for outdoor gaskets, wash-down gaskets, and resilient cushioning pads. With a firmness range from Ultra Soft to Extra Firm, expanded silicone foam products offer engineers the flexibility to select the most suitable option for their specific applications.
Benefits of Using Silicone Foam
- Impressive Temperature Range: Silicone foam exhibits a wide operating temperature range, spanning from -67°F to 392°F (-55°C to 200°C).
- Effective Water Sealing: The closed-cell silicone foam products offer efficient water sealing capabilities, even with relatively low compressive forces.
- Efficient Dust Sealing: Both open-cell and closed-cell silicone foam products can be utilized for effectively sealing out dust, requiring minimal compressive forces.
- Resistant to Compression Set: Silicone foam demonstrates exceptional resistance to compression set, allowing it to rebound to its original thickness effectively.
- UV and Ozone Resistance: Silicone products exhibit outstanding resistance to UV rays and ozone, which can be attributed, in part, to their inorganic backbone. This property ensures long-term performance and durability.
- UL Gasketing Compliance: Certain silicone foam variants meet UL 94 flame rating standards and are UL 50 and UL 50E-rated for gasketing applications.

Silicone Sponge and Foam Materials
Our silicone foam sheet and silicone sponge materials offer exceptional properties for various applications. The closed-cell elastomeric silicone foam sheet is specifically designed to provide reliable sealing, cushioning, vibration insulation, and insulation capabilities. With a range of densities from 200kg/m³ (soft) to 530 kg/m³ (firm), it caters to different requirements. Additionally, it exhibits excellent resistance to ozone, UV rays, and weathering, ensuring long-lasting performance. The closed cell structure enhances its sealing efficiency.
On the other hand, our silicone sponge material excels in environments with extreme conditions, from ozone to UV rays. It boasts an impressive temperature range from -60°C to 230°C, making it an ideal choice for sealing applications in volatile environmental conditions. Available in white, grey, and black, our silicone sponge sheeting offers versatility in design options. Our silicone foam sheet and silicone sponge materials provide reliable solutions for various industries and applications.
