Laimes® silicone is used for many interior and exterior uses, including seals, gaskets, and thermal insulation, making it an excellent material choice for aerospace applications.
Performance Properties of Silicone
Silicone rubber holds a number of performance properties that are critical for the aerospace industry.
Waterproof - Does not absorb or transfer moisture to protect electrical components and the interior of the cabin.
Electrical Insulator –has good insulating properties and does not conduct electricity. Ideal for electrical components, panels and lighting.
High and low temperature resistance – Maintains performance integrity over a wide high to low temperature range.
Noise and Vibration Dampening – Resists compression set and remains resilient to act as a barrier for vibration and sound.
Chemical Resistant – Resistant to a variety of chemicals, acids, bases, and oils so it won’t break down over the long term.
