Jehbsil Platinum Silicone is our highest specification grade of solid silicone rubber. It is particularly suited for food contact, medical grade, drinking water contact and pharmaceutical applications. It can be extruded into any shape, is available in many hardness grades (40-90 Shore A). Platinum cure silicone also exhibits superior elongation, tensile strength, tear strength and compression set compared to GP silicone.
All platinum cured silicones are FDA, WRAS, RoHS and USP class VI certified, and Plat-60 and Plat-70 grade tubing are AS 4020 approved. Platinum silicone can be used at extremely high and low temperatures, and are chemically resistant to UV light and a wide variety of substances.
Custom grades of silicone can also be engineered on request to match specific mechanical property requirements, typically by combining different peroxide grades (eg. 55 Shore A). All Jehbsil silicones can be made to match any colour on demand.
