Rogers Corp. introduced BISCO®HT-350, a new cellular silicone solution for gasketing and sealing in applications requiring lightweight and low compression force. Well suited for a wide variety of enclosures, the new medium-firm BISCO HT-350 silicone material pairs the lightweight properties of a foam with the enhanced sealing capabilities of a traditional sponge rubber.
With as little as 5 percent compression (using the standard ASTM F37 test method), the material provides exceptional sealing for industrial, automotive or mass transit enclosures, where cushioning, vibration isolation and insulation must withstand a wide range of environmental extremes. The new option is highly flame resistant
The HT-350 is also a cost-effective sealing solution, particularly in large volume production.
“We’re very pleased to add this new HT-350 foam offering to our portfolio of high performance sealing solutions. By expanding our product line, we can offer designers increased choice and flexibility along with the reliability they expect from our BISCO products.” — Dan Kubick, Rogers product manager for BISCO silicones
