Solid Silicone Profiles
The SFS Group manufactures complex solid silicone extrusions from a wide range of compounds and hardnesses. In-house die making ensures quick turnround from order to despatch. Many years of experience ensures that SFS profiles are offered to tight tolerances, and that the correct materials are chosen to suit the application.
Solid Silicone Cord
SFS Solid silicone cords are available from 1.0mm to 60mm diametre. Standard hardness is 60° shore A, but other hardnesses from 30° to 80° can be manufactured. Many sizes held in stock. Different grades available such as conductive silicone for RFI/EMI shielding.
Solid Silicone Sections
SFS manufactures square and rectangular sections, and has a massive range of tooling. Rectangular strips can be extruded up to 300mm wide. As tooling is made in-house, there is no charge for new dies if the size is missing from our range.
Solid Silicone Tube
SFS manufactures silicone tube with bore sizes from 1.0mm up to 80.0mm. Hardnesses from 30° to 80° shore A. SFS has a large range of colours available including tints, and we offer a colour matching service.
Solid Silicone D Sections
SFS has many D section tools, which can be supplied with or without hollow centres. Typically used for sealing, the wall thickness and material hardness can be varied to improve compressibility.
Solid Silicone P sections
P sections are designed for sealing applications. The bub of the P forms the seal, while the tail is used for locating. SFS has a large number of P section dies, and can also manufacture to customer design. The P sections can have a hollow bulb, or a solid bulb.
Solid Silicone U Section
U channels are used as edging strips, either to form seals or to add protection. SFS has many different shapes and configurations available from simple U channels to ones with ribbed surfaces or bulbs for extra sealing.
