Silicone rubber offers excellent resistance to the aging process. It is also unaffected by sunlight or ozone. silicone rubber offers a great range of resistance in both hot and cold environments. In addition, silicone offers far superior tensile strength, elongation, tear strength, and compression sets in extreme temperatures than conventional rubbers. In addition to temperature resistance, other advantages of silicone rubber include insulation from electricity, compression set resistance, and the ability to repel water.
