DuraSil® Silicone Fabric

DuraSil® Silicone Fabric

DuraSil® Silicone Fabric is used for applications where surface grip with excellent release is desired

Description

DuraSil® Silicone Fabric

The DuraSil® Silicone Series is the most conformable, flexible, trackable, and wear resistant product line offered by AFC. This series is made from woven fiberglass substrates that have been coated on one or both sides with silicone rubber. These fabrics provide a higher friction surface with different release qualities than PTFE (Fluon®) coated fabrics. In fact, some products that may adhere to PTFE coated fabrics may not adhere to silicone coated surfaces. Available in multiple colors and with multiple plies, (up to three), these fabrics areused in applications where a surface grip with excellent release is desired.

DuraSil® Coated Fabric Characteristics

DuraSil® Fabrics are engineered to retain the distinctive properties of silicone, but by adding a glass fabric to the matrix, AFC is able to obtain the added benefits of dimensional stability, durability, excellent tensile strength and low elongation. DuraSil® Fabrics have received USDA approval for food processing and handling, and are FDA compliant (21 CFR177.2600). In addition, the DuraSil® Fabrics can operate in temperatures from -100°F to 500°F (-73°C to 302°C).
