Silicone Rubber Fabrications
Silicone Fabrications are available from our silicone compounds. These fabricated parts can be caul sheets, compaction bags, debulk bags, membranes, pressure bags, pressure bladders, pressure intensifiers, reusable vacuum bags, rubber membranes, silicone bags, silicone vacuum bags, vacuum blankets and vacuum forming rubber.
Mosites Rubber Company has been a major supplier of silicone rubber to the Aerospace Industry for over forty years. Our silicone rubber is available in cured roll form, uncured or “B” stage roll form, and fabricated contoured blankets or inflatable bags. Many of our customers have applications that require vacuum bags made on tooling that is too large or otherwise unavailable for shipment to our facility.
These situations have led Mosites Rubber Company to offer technical assistance and training to enable our customers to fabricate silicone vacuum blankets in their plants.
The silicone elastomer is very soft and pliable in the uncured form. This softness allows it to be shaped easily into complex configurations. Multiple layers bond easily and uniformly to themselves and the uncured elastomer can be bonded to cured silicone if an area needs to be repaired or built up. High stress areas can be strengthened by applying fabric reinforced, uncured silicone to the area and vulcanizing it in place.
The overall high strength of the silicone vacuum blanket, the retention of physical properties after numerous production cycles, and the inherent release characteristics of the silicone make it an excellent choice for a reusable, cost effective bagging systems.
