Silicone Sponge UL 94 HB | Flame Retardant | National Silicone

Medium Flame Retardant Silicone Sponge

UL 94 HB Closed Cell Silicone Sponge Rubber

This medium density, closed cell flame retardant silicone sponge is a blue/grey color and is rated UL 94 HB. It is ideal for sealing and gasket applications where flame resistance and fire safety are a top priority. The material is produced with a fabric impression on both sides, is flexible and offers excellent compression set resistance.

More Information

UL 94 HB

  • UL 94 HB is a is a safety and flammability standard by Underwriters Laboratories.
  • This material is compliant with the UL 94 HB test standard for flammability.
  • The horizontal burn test measures how quickly a horizontally oriented polymer specimen burns across when a flame is applied to one end of the sample.
  • In order for a material to be classified UL 94 HB, it must not have a burning exceeding 40 mm per minute over a 75 mm span for specimens having a thickness of 3.0 mm to 13 mm. For material with thickness less than 3mm the burning rate should not exceed 75mm per minute over a 75mm span. The material will also be rated as HB if it ceases to burn before the 100mm mark independent of thickness.
