Silicone rubber

Silicone rubber is characterized by high thermal resistance and can withstand temperatures ranging from –70 to +160 °C (–90 to +320 °F). Silicone rubber absorbs lubricants, thereby minimizing friction and wear. SKF silicone rubber seals are particularly suitable for applications with very low or very high temperatures and for low-friction sealing of bearing arrangements. They are not very resistant to oxidized oils or certain EP additives and should be protected against abrasive substances. Sealing lips made of silicone rubber should not be exposed to dry running.
