Cut to Length Silicone Rubber Extrusions

We have 30 years’ experience cutting extruded silicone tubes, strips, cords and profiles into lengths of all sizes. We have a large range of modern in-house joining equipment and are able to supply both small prototyping batches as well as production orders of many thousands of parts.

Cutting Tolerances

We supply cut parts to ISO 3302-1: 2014 as standard. Detailed information on our cutting and extrusion tolerances is available on our tolerances page.

In certain circumstances, we may be able to achieve tighter tolerances than those listed on our tolerance chart. If your project requires tighter tolerances, please contact one of our technical advisers who will be happy to discuss possibilities.

Properties of Silicone Rubber

  • Temperature Resistant – Silicone rubber is thermally stable over large temperature ranges from -60°C to + 200°C (and higher for specialist grades).
  • UV and Ozone Resistance – Silicone rubber has excellent UV and Ozone resistance, making it an ideal material choice for outdoor and long-term applications.
  • Electrical Insulation – Silicone rubber exhibits high electrical insulation properties. It is frequently used to make gaskets and seals used for electrical enclosures.
  • Excellent Moisture Resistance – Silicone rubber can be immersed in cold, warm or boiling water for long periods of time with virtually no effect on mechanical strength or electrical properties.
  • Chemical Stability – Silicone rubber is highly inert and does not react with most chemicals. It is biocompatible and hypoallergenic and is suitable for use in food contact and baby care products.
  • Flame Retardant – Specialist additives can be added to silicone rubber compounds to give them flame retardant properties.
  • Steam Resistant – Silicone rubber is generally not deteriorated by steam at normal pressures. Special grades of silicone are available which have greater resistance to superheated or pressurised steam.
