Technical Textiles

Technical textiles are manufactured primarily for their technical performance, tenacity, durability and its functional properties. Silicone rubber coatings can be used to add value and functional abilities to these fabrics.Silicone rubber is a unique synthetic elastomer made from a crosslinked polymer that is reinforced with silica. It offers a perfect balance of mechanical and chemical properties required by many of today’s most demanding industrial applications.

Silicone Coating

Silicone rubber coating is water and chemical resistant and provides high ease of processing. Silicone rubber is a material of choice in industry when retention of initial shape and mechanical strength are desired. It also handles well under a wide range of temperature and is tenacious over extreme weather conditions.

Far superior to organic rubbers in general, offering:

  • Superior cold resistance (specialty silicone rubber grades can perform at temperatures as low as -85°C)
  • Better retention of tensile and elongation properties after thermal stress.
  • Relatively high surface friction (useful for some applications such as conveyor belts)
  • Less chance of worker sensitization after repeated handling, especially compared to acrylics and urethanes

Typical coating methods include Dip/immersion coating, Kiss coating (lick roll), Knife coating (over air, roll or rubber sleeve), Rotogravure coating, Extrusion & Spraying.
