Steam Resistant Rubber

Steam Resistant Silicone Rubber

One of the applications where rubber seals or tubes are often required is where steam is present, often at high temperatures and pressures. Most rubbers do not cope well with Steam and degrade quickly, Silicone Rubber is no exception.

Steam Resistant Silicone Rubber has been specifically developed with resistance to steam and will last considerably longer and perform better than other grades of Silicone Rubber.

Adpol manufactures extrusions, mouldings, gaskets, seals and punched parts from a specialist steam resistant compound. We are able to vary the hardness and colour to suit your specific needs.

A new extrusion die and sample can cost as little as £175.00 and take from 2 weeks with order volumes from 20 – 20,000 metres being catered for thereafter.
