TPE SEALSANT – BESTSELLERS FOR THE FOOD AND MEDICAL INDUSTRY
SILICONE SEALS WITH EXCEPTIONAL CHARACTERISTICS
Silicone moldings and silicone gaskets made of VMQ are characterized by their excellent hot-air resistance and low-temperature flexibility (-50 to +200 ° C, with special parameters from -90 to +300 ° C). Due to the high purity of silicone rubber compared to other elastomers, it is often used in the food and medical sector.
SILICONE SEALS AND SILICONE MOLDING – GOOD FOR STATIC LOADS
However, the tensile strength, tear propagation resistance and abrasion resistance are comparatively moderate. VMQ should not be designed for dynamically loaded seals. We distinguish between hot vulcanizing solid silicone rubber (HTV) and liquid silicone rubber (LSR). Multi-Compontent injection molded parts in combination with silicone as a soft component are also part of our portfolio.

Silicone molded parts
As niche products, silicone moldings supplement our product range. Due to the special property profile, silicone moldings fill a gap that cannot be closed with EPDM and TPE molded parts alone. Ventilation parts and other molded parts are already part of our product range and the product range will be further expanded in the coming years.
