Lighting & LED

The continued growth of the lighting industry and in particularly LED sees an increasing demand in materials not only meeting stringent requirements, but also providing longevity. The range of elastomers available to lighting engineers and designers is quite extensive. Unsurprisingly, with so much choice, choosing the right material can become difficult and it’s easy to get lost in an ocean of information, grades, hardness’ and specifications.

PremSil Silicone Sponge has extreme temperature resistance, chemical stability and low compression set. It’s that fantastic sealing ability which makes it the material of choice in many lighting applications, performing comfortably with the heat generated in lighting enclosures. This, coupled with silicone’s excellent environmental resistance, allows for use in outdoor applications where protection from weathering is vital for performance. Silicone’s inherent durability to weathering reduces the life cycle cost & maintenance regime significantly. Naturally, a sponge also offers an inherent cost saving and improved sealing properties over a rubber counterpart.

Food & Beverage

Whilst there are several FDA approved elastomers on the market, silicone can certainly be classed as the ‘go to’ for FDA requirements and it has many excellent properties to thank for that.

PremSil  P201F is our platinum cured FDA approved Silicone Sponge that has fantastic temperature resistance, withstanding extreme temperatures from -50°C to over 200°C, making it great for use in a wide range of applications within the industry. P201F FDA boasts great chemical resistance to many chemicals and oils that are commonly present in areas where consumables may be handled or processed. Couple these properties with our sponge’s excellent elasticity, compression and flexibility and you have a reliable silicone sponge rubber which is great for repeated use in equipment, food processing and machinery.

Naturally, a sponge offers an inherent cost saving and improved sealing properties over an equivalent rubber product.

Automotive

As demands for power, performance and quality in the automotive industry increase, so does the need for silicone, thanks to its thermal stability. New technologies are seeing higher temperatures and engineers must take these increases into account when choosing materials for automotive applications.

PremSil silicone sponge’s excellent temperature resistance from -50°C to 250°C (High-temperature grades are +280°C) is helping increase the lifespan and reduce maintenance of automotive parts. As electric car requirements start to increase globally, it is this excellent thermal stability which offers a perfect solution to the increase in Lithium Ion batteries in cars – alternative rubber counterparts such as EPDM simply can’t cope with the heat. PremSil silicone sponge is also resistant to abrasion, UV and weathering such as rain, wind, and frost adding to reasons why this is the material of choice in the automotive industry.
