This commercial grade silicone rubber sheeting is perfect for non-specification grade applications where extreme temperature resistance is the critical factor. This silicone 40 Shore A is a very low durometer silicone material. This sheet rubber is unique among other silicone elastomers as it has an eye-catching red/orange color, allowing it to stand out when used in an application. Additionally, it is available in more diverse thickness options, ranging in gauges from 1/32" to 1/2" thick. Buy this silicone 40 shore A in quantities as small as 3ft wide by 5ft long.

Temperature Resistant Silicone: Like all other silicone elastomers, this sheet rubber has the ability to function in the face of extreme temperature conditions. If your application involves temperatures ranging from -103 F to 450 F, then this silicone rubber sheeting is the right kind of sheet rubber for you. This temperature resistance has gained silicone a reputation as a solid performer in laboratory, construction, and automotive applications.

Low Durometer Silicone: Durometer is a very important factor to consider when deciding on a sheet rubber product for your application. It measures how resistant to physical indentation a rubber is. A low durometer silicone rubber rating, such as this silicone 40 Shore A, indicates that this is a pliable and flexible material. This product is good for applications where a supple and pliable rubber sheet is needed. A low durometer silicone rubber is less dense and lighter in weight than sheet rubber with higher durometer ratings.

Moderate Chemical Resistance: While this may be a temperature resistant silicone product, it also brings with it the ability to resist certain chemicals. This feature comes in handy if you are using this material in laboratory settings of a commercial nature. It can resist ammonia gas, sodium sulfate, and vinegar. Check with a Rubber-Cal expert to see how this silicone rubber sheeting will fare against your specific type of chemical.
