Silicone is a quality, long lasting product that is ideal for a variety of industries. Its properties are second to none, with a wide temperature range of -40 degrees C to +250 degrees C continuous. The product is UV stable and non-toxic. Silicone has an FDA approval which makes it an acceptable food grade product.
If you are looking for a solution to your silicone sealing needs, then Jehbco can offer you an answer, whether it be standard o/rings or custom made seals. We have over 2,000 extruded shapes on record, including solid silicone in a variety of hardness, ranging from 25 shore A up to 80 shore A, which can be joined into almost any cut-length for your seal and o/ring requirement.
Other silicone products available include silicone sponge. It is a soft but durable product, mainly used in the lighting industry. The material will take up those uneven gaps that a solid silicone cannot and still retains the same characteristics of its solid counterpart. The sponge can be made into varying profile shapes or o-rings and joined at your required length.
Flame retardant o-rings are also available. With government regulations becoming more stringent, the need for self–extinguishing products around fire doors and in highly flammable situations is becoming more apparent. This product is easily made into your seal requirement by the addition of a powder that makes the silicone flashpoint go beyond 500 degrees C.
Many years of expertise are associated with our fabrication department. We produce a variety of items for the lighting, food, medical and engineering industries. Pneumatic seals, cut washers and corner joins to name a few. Valves and connectors are also available. We use a heat press vulcanisation process to give the seal a strong bond which gives flexibility when joining different cut-lengths. Certain o/rings can also be moulded to suit your needs.
