Product Description

Our manufacture our silicone self grip profiles from a high quality, FDA compliant silicone rubber compound. They provide excellent edge protection and sealing capabilities in high temperature and hazardous environments. In many applications you can install these self grip profiles without the use of adhesive. This provides a secure fit, while also enabling you to install and remove the profiles as required. We currently offer 3 profiles available as standard, we can also bespoke manufacture self grip profiles to your exact specifications.

These silicone self grip profiles feature a good combination of durable mechanical properties with highly versatile resistance. Our self grip profiles are resistant against thermal deterioration as well as being flame retardant to UL94-HB specifications. This compound provides good resistance against exposure to fuel and lubricants. It also provides excellent resistance against water, water glycol mixture and salt spray, as well as a variety of detergents.

The stainless steel inlay within our silicone self grip profiles enables you to securely install them along a curve. It also ensures that the profile is able to maintain it’s shape to better seal or protect against impacts. We regularly supply these profiles for use in edge trim or door seals in high temperature or hazardous environments.
