The latest addition to the range of silicone products available from Jehbco Manufacturing is the versatile and strong Dow Corning RBB-2210-30b.

This high quality material is a 30 shore A high-tear silicone elastomer that can be extruded to almost any profile shape. Further, with a tear strength of 35 kN/m, high elongation and excellent compression set, it can suit many applications.

Jehbco Manufacturing notes that low durometer silicones can often be difficult to work with due to the soft nature of the material. Whilst extruding, they can tend to collapse and not hold shape. The company, however, has mastered techniques that have been developed with almost 40 years of experience to enable customers to receive die shapes to their exact requirements and tolerances.

The new Dow Corning silicone is highly versatile, as it is not only soft to suit more flexible sealing situations, but also exhibits a high tear strength, which enables it to withstand harsher environments that are not normally suited to standard silicone rubbers.
