Silicone Sponge UL 94 V-0 | Flame Retardant | National Silicone

Medium Flame Retardant Silicone Sponge

UL 94 V-0 Closed Cell Silicone Sponge Rubber

This medium firm closed cell flame retardant silicone sponge is typically a grey or black color and is rated UL 94 V-0. Passing the vertical burn test, which is more stringent than horizontal test (HB), is seen as a critical safety standard for applications where flame and fire protection is of the highest importance. The material is produced with a fabric impression on both sides, is flexible and offers excellent compression set resistance.

More Information

UL 94 V-0

  • UL 94 V-0 is a safety and flammability standard by Underwriters Laboratories.
  • This material is compliant with the UL 94 V-0 test standard for flammability.
  • The vertical burn test measures the self-extinguishing time of a vertically oriented polymer specimen. The test evaluates both the burning and afterglow times and dripping of the burning test specimen.
  • In order to be rated UL 94 V-0, the burning must stop within 10 seconds, no flame propagation or dripping.

 

AMS3195

  • AMS3195 is an aerospace material specification is from SAE International Group.
  • The specification covers silicone rubber sponge in the form of sheet, strip, extrusions, and molded shapes.
  • Our medium density silicone sponge sheet is in accordance with the physical property requirements of AMS3195 test standard.
  • This product has been used typically for general applications requiring closed-cell, medium sponge rubber that will be flexible from -103 to +401 °F (-75 to +205 °C), but usage is not limited to such applications. Compression set may be high at the higher temperature.
