Bespoke Silicone Profiles – Our Manufacturing Capabilities

At Viking Extrusions, we provide an unbeaten experience, supplying our clients with products and opportunities you won’t find anywhere else in the industry. We can offer minimum order quantities as low as 10m depending on profile size and also have the machinery and capacity to produce large production runs of many thousands of metres, specialising in the manufacturing of complex rubber profiles, producing:

  • Single hollow voids
  • Multiple hollow voids
  • Irregular shapes
  • Small profiles
  • Large profiles (our maximum tool size is 152mm diameter)

We can extrude profiles in a wide range of material grades, from 20° Shore A to 80° Shore A, including the ability to manufacture products in all colours. Our production staff are highly experienced in pigmenting silicones to match RAL and Pantone numbers and colour-matching customer samples.

As standard, our silicone profiles are extruded to ISO 3302-1: 2014 E3 tolerances. However, if required, we may be able to offer tighter tolerances. To discuss your project requirements, please contact us to speak to one of our experienced team members or to view our manufacturing tolerances, visit our tolerances page.

Extensive Silicone Profile Solutions

The years of experience we have in silicone extrusion manufacturing have allowed us to expand our selection of products, with our close-knit and expert team combining their capabilities to create joined rings, fabricated gaskets and adhesive-backed profiles.

Cut to Length Silicone Profiles and Joined Rings

Our extensive length-cutting capabilities put us ahead of the competition, with a selection of in-house cutting equipment and machinery allowing us to supply silicone profiles cut to any length required. We also have a comprehensive range of joining presses and are able to supply silicone rubber profiles, either glued or vulcanised into rings of any size.

For more information on our cutting and joining capabilities, visit our Cut to Length Silicone Extrusion and Silicone Rubber Joined Rings pages.

Fabricated Silicone Gaskets

As well as being joined into rings, we can join profiles into more complex fabricated gaskets, such as picture frame gaskets, achieved using mitre-joined or moulded corners.

We can supply silicone rubber profiles complete with adhesive backing tapes applied. Specialist tapes are available on request.

The advantages of silicone rubber profiles

Silicone rubber is an inorganic synthetic elastomer made from a cross-linked silicone-based polymer, offering a unique set of advantageous properties which cannot be matched by other organic elastomers, including:

We manufacture many different types of silicone rubber profiles – for all applications.

We manufacture silicone rubber profiles from many different types of compounds and are confident we will be able to deliver the perfect solution for your industry purposes. The most popular types of silicone profiles we provide are:

  • General purpose silicone profilesThe most common type of our general-purpose silicone is FDA-approved and can be pigmented to almost any colour.
  • Platinum cured silicone profilesOur platinum-cured silicone has excellent biocompatibility and is FDA and USP Class VI approved, making it suitable for medical and pharmaceutical applications. Platinum-cured silicone has high tear strength and transparency and is commonly used in food processing, peristaltic pumps and many other applications.
  • Heat stabilised silicone profiles – Suitable for applications up to 260°C.
  • High temperature silicone tubing – Suitable for applications up to 300°C.
  • Metal-detectable silicone tubing X-ray-detectable silicone used for food processing applications.
  • Flame retardant silicone profilesAvailable to EN45545-2 specifications for rail applications and FAR/JAR 25.823 for aerospace usage.
  • Conductive silicone profilesSemi-conductive compound with low volume resistivity, used for electro-conductive parts, EMI shielding and heating elements.
