Automotive & Transportation Elastomers

Various fluorosilicone plastic parts

Be Flexible with Silicone and Fluorosilicone Engineered Elastomers

Build durable sealing, gasketing and heat-resistance components.

Rely on engineered elastomers from Dow Consumer Solutions to meet Automotive industry challenges for energy efficiency, lightweight, greater comfort and safety. In your search for high-performing automotive components that need to resist fuels, oils, solvents and chemicals in extreme heat, cold and harsh operating conditions, consider the advantages of using fluoro liquid silicone rubber to:

Obtain a Level of Performance Many Organic Elastomers cannot Match

  • Long service life in adverse operating environments and weather conditions 
  • Wider operating temperature range, from -40 to 316°C (-40 to 600°F), with special compounds functional down to -100°C (-148°F) 
  • Inherently good electrical insulating qualities that do not change significantly under exposure to severe environmental stress, such as extreme heat and cold, low or high humidity, water immersion, oil, ozone, UV rays, air pollution 
  • Excellent mechanical sealing performance with long-term flexibility, elasticity and resistance to aging, cracking and compression set 
  • Wide range of choices in hardness, specific gravity, tensile strength, elongation, color pigments and flow properties
  • Selection of standard rubber bases and custom blends, primers, additives, cure mechanisms and fabrication options
