Silicone Solutions for the Aerospace Industry
In an environment where failure can have catastrophic consequences, you need materials that are proven to perform to a higher standard over the long term. Silicone rubber is an excellent material choice for aerospace applications because of it’s dynamic performance characteristics. These features allow for many interior and exterior uses including gaskets, seals, and thermal insulation.
Having worked directly with aviation engineers, National Silicone can provide a range of silicone grades compliant with federal and individual manufacturer aviation specifications.

Performance Properties of Aerospace Silicone
Silicone rubber holds a number of performance properties that are critical for the aerospace industry.
Resistant to Temperature Extremes – Maintains performance integrity across a broad range of high to low temperatures.
Water Resistant – Does not absorb water or transfer moisture to protect electrical components and cabin interiors.
Chemical Resistant – Resistant to a variety of chemicals, acids, bases, and oils so it won’t break down over the long term.
Electrical Insulator – Does not conduct electricity making it ideal for use in electrical components, panels, and lighting.
Noise and Vibration Dampening – Resists compression set and remains resilient to act as a barrier for vibration and sound.
