Silicone Sponge

Silicone Sponge

Silicone sponge is regarded for its high heat, resistance to compression set and is used in high performance gasketing, thermal shielding, vibration mounts and press pads. Silicone sponge is available in different grades of compressibility and compression deflection that meet ASTM, BMS, and Mil-R specifications.
