Silicone Performance Properties Critical to the Rail Industry
Resistant to Temperature Extremes – maintains integrity and flexibility between temperatures as high as 230℃/446℉ and as low as -100℃/-148℉.
Exceptional Long-Term Sealing Performance – Excellent compression set characteristics and resistance to stress relaxation combine to create a tight long-term seal against wind, rain, moisture, dust, and environmental contaminants.
Resistant to Environmental Degradation – able to withstand the effects of UV light, Ozone, Oxidation, Radiation, Corona Discharge, and general weathering.
Vibration Isolation and Noise Dampening – creates an effective and durable barrier against the transfer of vibration and sound to the passenger compartment to enhance passenger comfort and safety.
Water Resistant – will not absorb water or transfer moisture to protect electrical components and protect against corrosion.
Flame Resistance Protection – meets UL 94 V0 flame spread resistance standard in keeping with key passenger safety requirements.
Chemical Resistance – will not break down or be contaminated when exposed to a variety of common chemicals, acids, and oils.
