Silicone Sealing Through Application Development 900116

New sealing methods and materials are emerging as alternatives to traditional pre-molded gasketing in automotive applications, and the use of silicones has been prompted by the need to develop sealing materials that can withstand higher temperatures over a longer service life. Advances in sealing technology have led to innovations whose potential benefits include reduced gasket inventories, greater design flexibility and reduced manpower requirements. This paper discusses the changes which are required in traditional design techniques to ensure reliability in sealing and efficiency in manufacturing.
