Reinforced fibreglass silicone sheeting from Jehbco

Supplier News
article image These reinforced fibreglass silicone sheeting products are non porous
Reinforced fibreglass silicone sheeting products with a thickness of either 0.38mm, 1.5mm, 3.0mm or 6.4mm are available from Jehbco Manufacturing .

The fibreglass silicone sheeting, which is typically used for gaskets or seals yet has a range of other applications, is non-porous and can withstand temperatures ranging from -60°C through to +260°C.

The sheeting is also non-toxic, chemically inert and resistant to fungus.

The fibreglass silicone material used to produce the sheeting is resistant to deterioration caused by weathering and engine oil.

Furthermore, it maintains its flexibility within the broad temperature range previously mentioned, and is FDA approved, so the fibreglass silicone sheeting products can be used in food related industries.

Two grades of the fibreglass silicone material are used, and this is dependent on the thickness required.

Typically the DSP1564 Grade is used for thicknesses greater than 0.8mm; meanwhile the DSP7628 Grade is used for thicknesses of 0.8mm of less.
