Silicone (VMQ) Rubber 1150 psi (7.93 MPa) Tensile Strength, High Resiliency 25 - 35
|Publication Date:||1 May 2014|
This specification covers a silicone (VMQ) rubber in the form of sheet, strip, tubing, molded shapes, and extrusions.
These products have been used typically for parts required to operate or seal from -75 to +205 °C (-103 to +401 °F), compounded especially for high strength and resiliency, but usage is not limited to such applications.
Silicone elastomer is resistant to deterioration by weathering and aircraft piston engine oil and remains flexible over the temperature range noted. The rubber is not normally suitable for use in contact with gasoline or aromatic fuels and low-aniline-point petroleum-base fluids due to excessive swelling of the elastomer.
While the materials, methods, applications, and processes described or referenced in this specification may involve the use of hazardous materials, this specification does not address the hazards which may be involved in such use. It is the sole responsibility of the user to ensure familiarity with the safe and proper use of any hazardous materials and to take necessary precautionary measures to ensure the health and safety of all personnel involved.
