CUSTOM SILICONE EXTRUSION PRODUCTS
Custom silicone can be used in thousands of applications analogous to multiple and various industries. Generally, those industries have needs for products such as silicone tubing, silicone sleeves, silicone hoses (in particular, silicone vacuum and coolant hoses), conductive silicone, silicone sponge, silicone foam as well as food grade bands and tubing. In addition to those commonly requested shapes and sizes, we also offer a multitude of other further complex profiles. In any case, we can design products overall with custom silicone to meet even more business, food or military specifications. Overall, ARCO® Silicone Solutions will develop unique formulations using application specific compounds with the durometer, color and performance characteristics relevant to each customer’s finished product requirements. Furthermore, we create finished products that 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.
Additionally, we supply those custom silicone compounds in solid silicone and open cell or closed cell silicone foam profiles in silicone cording, silicone tubing and silicone bands as well as other silicone cross-sectional or specific profile shape designs. With this in mind, the finished extruded product can be produced in continuous lengths, cut to required specifications and packaged accordingly to meet the customer’s usage needs. Even more, imprinting product information, logos or graphics on the finished product is another option we offer. Now that you know the specifics about our manufacturing capabilities, learn more about our history in helping our clients find the specific compound necessary to meet their need by visiting our Case Studies page.
Most importantly, we specialize in custom silicone compounds and can certainly help you identify alternatives for any elastomer to save cost in the end product.
