Silicone foams are used as sealing and insulating materials, particularly in areas where there is too much heat present, owing to their long-lives and high resistance to deformation and heat. They are preferred for reducing the heat transfer. Thanks to their strong physical structure they demonstrate resistance against irreversible crushing and maintain their appearance like-new. Their tensile-shear resistances are at high levels.
They are the high performance sealing and insulation materials of automotive, white appliances, electric-electronic, marine, aviation sectors as well as aircraft and arms industries. They are used in industrial ironing machines and steaming engines without any problems.
