If you are a business that distributes, converts, fabricates or manufactures silicone, we can supply you from our existing product line or work with you to discover and develop the silicone products you need.
We offer four product categories in the National Silicone product line. They include:
Solid Silicone Sheeting
Commercial, FDA, ZZR, Electrically Conductive, Fiberglass Reinforced Grades
Our series of solid silicone sheet are constructed using a high silicone polymer mixture which translates to exceptional performance across all durometers. Designed with a long service life in mind, these materials provide excellent resistance to chemicals, fluids, and extreme temperature environments. Manufactured in continuous rolls, in standard and specialty grades, with a smooth surface finish on both sides. These products are currently available for sale in North America, Europe & Asia.
- Commercial Grade Solid Silicone
- FDA Grade Solid Silicone
- ZZ-R-765 / A-A-59588 Grade Solid Silicone

Closed Cell Silicone Sponge
Soft, Medium, Firm, Extra Firm, Flame Retardant Grades
Our closed cell silicone sponges are excellent for conditions that require a soft compressible material with high-performance properties. Providing extra strength and durability, these materials are versatile and are ideal for extreme temperature environments in gaskets and sealing applications. Manufactured in continuous rolls, in four firmness grades, with a fabric impression surface finish on both sides. These products are currently available for sale in North America, Europe and Asia.
Cellular Silicone Foam
Ultra Soft, Extra Soft, Soft, Medium, Firm, Extra Firm, Automotive Grades
Our series of cellular silicone foams are engineered for longevity and high performance. They excel in conditions that require low compression set, high temperature stability, low temperature flexibility and need to be UL 94 flame rated. Manufactured in continuous rolls in various grades, with both a smooth and fabric impression surface finish (depending on the grade). These products are currently available for sale in North America, Europe and Asia.
