The properties of elastomers

Thanks to their outstanding properties, silicone elastomers are used in many different industrial applications: pipes & hoses (automotive, medical and food), sealing (joints in construction and aeronautics, automotive gaskets) and electrical protection (construction safety cables, energy insulators, spark plug boots, cables and connectors for automotive applications). For food processing and pharmaceutical applications (tubes, profiles and gaskets), the Silbione™ range of elastomers is specially formulated to be safe for human contact and consumption, complying with the strictest regulations all over the world.
