Here at Viking Extrusions we have 30 years experience providing high quality silicone sponge tubing to a huge range of industries in the UK, Europe and globally. We have a huge supply of silicone sponge grades, for all applications.
Silicone is the perfect material choice for a variety of applications across many industries. This is because it has many properties that help it to stand out among other materials.
Silicone sponges’ popularity stems from the fact that it offers all the benefits of solid silicone rubber; its unique cellular structure allows for better sealing at lower compression forces.
Silicone is made up of a chain of silicon and oxygen atoms, as opposed to the normal carbon and hydrogen molecules of other rubber. This silicone structure helps to give unique adaptability to the silicone foam tubes.
As standard, our silicone sponge is manufactured to ISO 3302-1:2014 E3 tolerances. However, in some circumstances, if required, we may be able to achieve a tighter tolerance. Contact us and we can help you out with any queries that you may have.

Silicone sponge has many properties which make it the ideal material choice for a variety of applications across multiple industries. Silicone sponge offers all of the benefit of solid silicone rubber but allows for better sealing at lower compression forces due to its cellular structure.
Silicone sponge tubes and hoses are supplied by Viking Extrusions to a diverse range of industries worldwide. Some of the primary industries using silicone sponge tubing include:
Silicone foam has very low water absorption properties, this is why it’s commonly used for items like gaskets and sealants.
Closed cell. Silicone is a closed cell, this means that things like water, dust and moisture cannot enter the cell structure of the material due to the lack of connectivity.
