We manufacture our components with pure Silicone Rubber. There are many materials are used to manufacture, including silicone and natural rubber. What difference between silicone and natural rubber?
• Serving time
The serving time of silicone or rubber-related products is a vital issue for many industries. Silicone lasts four times as long as rubber but costs two or even three times as much. Therefore, silicone o-ring owns a longer life and more cost-efficient saving in a long run.
• The ability to resist ultraviolet light or extreme temperatures
Rubber is a dye material that changes from the moment it is produced. The change of pressure and temperature as well as exposure to the condition of UV light can speed up the damage level of rubber o-ring, which in turn can affect density, color, hardness, and texture. Silicone, however, is not affected by ultraviolet light or extreme temperatures.
• Applications in the Medical and Food Processing Industry
Silicone o-ring is widely applied in medical and food processing industries for its unique properties. The service life of silicone and its resistance to pressure and temperature make it an ideal material that can withstand longer sustained stresses and pressures than rubber without corroding or cracking in the process. Less pollution, long-term financial savings, and overall more hygienic construction all contribute to the advantages of using silicone.
