SILTEQ specialise in the manufacture of custom made silicone and fluorosilicone compounds for use within moulding, extrusion, calendering and hose manufacturing applications.
In recent years SILTEQ compounding has seen a significant increase in the amount of compounds produced. It has also seen significant investment in mixing equipment which has had a positive impact on the total volume output. With vast knowledge in this area SILTEQ compounds are formulated to suit customers’ specific requirements. We manufacture a full range of silicone compounds developed for different applications in hardnesses from 10 – 90 IRHD. We can also formulate compounds to meet your specific requirements.
SILTEQ can develop tailor made compounds which meet industry specific criteria such as UL 94 V-0, BS 6853, NFF16-101, USP Class VI, MIL R 25988 and SAE J 20 to name a few. Challenge us to meet your specifications. Please send your criteria to email@example.com and we shall respond quickly with an offer you will be more than happy with. SILTEQ can also pre-form compounds to suit various processes and package the materials in a multitude of different formats.
SILTEQ are completely independent meaning that they are free to source materials from any of the large principal silicone manufacturers around the globe.
SILTEQ have a full range of Silicone compounds ranging from general purpose to high strength and have a fully equipped compound mixing facility capable of producing ~500 tonnes of compound per year.
SILTEQ have a comprehensive range of phenyl silicone compounds for extreme low temperature applications down to -110°C.
SILTEQ has a full range of fluorosilicone compounds for a multitude of applications requiring excellent resistance to fuel and solvents over a broad temperature range.
SILTEQ laboratory has a full range of testing equipment available for research and development and would be happy to match any specification or any specific customer requirements. Just e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or call +44 (0)1204 474333.
Silicone’s vital role in developing electronics
Silicone allows the development of electronic devices that are easier to use, more powerful, more versatile and more cost-effective. Without silicone, many of the electric innovations we take for granted probably wouldn’t exist.
Silicone compound operating temperatures can range from -110°C to +300°C with very little difference in physical performance!
Silicone compounds can be filled with a vast range of additives to alter the physical performance in many ways.
Silicone can be either electrically insulating or conductive and its hardness can vary from 10 to 90 IRHD.
