CUSTOM SILICONE EXTRUSION CAPABILITIES

Custom silicone extrusion is indeed a key element in thousands of applications across multiple industries. For example, as you will find on our case study history page, one manufacturer relied heavily on silicone tubing to, above all, withstand extreme temperatures for long periods of time. Surprisingly, basic silicone compounds, all in all, could not stand up to the extreme environment. Therefore, a custom silicone extrusion (with special additives) was necessary.

As a matter of fact, over the past thirty years, with advances in production capabilities, the custom silicone extrusion process has become more accessible. Subsequently, making silicone the go-to elastomer for use in engineered products.

All things considered, here at ARCO®, we design custom silicone extrusion products to meet just about any need. In particular, those with precise business, food or military specifications (such as FDA 26CFR).

Furthermore, ARCO® Silicone can develop unique formulations using application specific compounds. To clarify, we can create products to match the durometer, color and performance characteristics each customer’s finished product requires.

Custom silicone extrusion capabilities may include, but are not limited to, attributes such as extreme high/low temperature tolerances, flame retardant feature, metal detectable feature, as well as oil, UV, ozone and steam resistant properties.

We regularly supply engineers, manufacturers, and inventors-alike with tubing, cords, and bands as well as other, more complex, profile shapes in solid silicone.  In addition to that, we also produce open cell or closed cell silicone foam. By the same token, the finished product can be manufactured in continuous lengths or cut to length and packaged to meet the customer’s usage needs. Lastly, we can imprint your product information, logos or graphics on the finished product.
