Peroxide Cured Silicone

The majority of Silicones for Industrial applications produced today are based on Peroxide-cured (as opposed to Platinum-cured) Rubber. In this curing process, the siloxane Polymer is blended with an organic peroxide. The material is extruded and then heated. Heat initiates the cross-linking, forming silicone. Catalytic by-products (peroxides and ketones) are volatile and evaporate during the cure process. If not fully cured, or if the extruded section is very deep and over long periods of time, outgassing of peroxides and ketones may occur. The major symptom of outgassing is blooming, or a fine white crystalline powder forming on the surface of the product. This may be removed by heating the product and then rinsing it.

Apex GB have over 20 years experience in manufacturing Plastic & Rubber Extrusions, Extruded Profiles and Tubing. We're quite rightfully proud of our reputation for consistently meeting the needs of customers over that time. Because we've remained small and focussed we've also remained more attentitive, more cost effective and more responsive than larger manufacturers.
