What is silicone's temperature range?

Silicone typically has a high-temperature limit of 205°C to 300°C and a low-temperature limit of -50°C to -60°C. This makes silicone the preferred material for applications with demanding temperature requirements.

What is silicone made of?

Unlike other rubbers in which Carbon(C) is the Main element, Silicone is made of Silicon(Si) & Oxygen(O) as the elements present in the main backbone chain of it.

What are the advantages of silicone rubbers?

The main advantages of Silicone include Non-toxicity, Biocompatibility, Superior Di-electric Strength, Wide temperature range, Low-Temperature Flexibility, and Weather Resistance.

The behavior of silicone during combustion

Silicone will burn inconsistently & produce white fumes while burning/combustion. Especially if it is a peroxide-cured grade it produces a mild sweet smell & white ash after removal from flame.

What temperatures can different grades of silicone withstand?

Normally all Silicones can withstand temperatures from around -60°C to 220°C But some special grade silicone like High-temperature Silicone can withstand temperatures slightly higher than normal grades, from -60°C to 250°C.

General Purpose Silicone
-60°C to 220°C

Heat Stabilised Silicone
-60°C to 220°C

High-Temperature Silicone
-50°C to 300°C

Flame Retardant Silicone grades
-55°C to 200°C
