- elongation at tear approx. 300%
- temperature resistant from -60 °C to 230 °C
- foof safe according to EN 1935/2004
- electrically insulating
- UV resistant
Engraving is not recommended for this Silicone. Because of the heat generated in the engraving, the material gets burned, especially when heavy raster engraving is applied (please see pictures above).
Adhesives, joints & fastenings
The silicone, which is very soft, can be cut using a blade or shears. It does not, however, take well to gluing. In order to attach it to itself or to other materials it must be riveted, screwed or sewn.
