Silicone rubber materials are ideal for certain automotive applications. Silicone rubber is an inert material and exhibits superior resistance to water, chemicals and oils, and extreme temperature ranges, making it an excellent material choice for many vehicle applications.
Parts and components made from silicone rubber can be used in vehicle and subassembly manufacture to:
Enhance driving comfort by reducing noise, vibration and harshness (NVH)
Improve vehicle performance by through superior thermal transfer or shielding
Improve safety by enhancing airbag and inflatable curtain performance
Increase vehicle reliability through durable parts that resist degradation in demanding operating conditions
Where Can CRGI Automotive Silicone Rubber Products Help?
Specific vehicle applications where automotive silicone rubber products from Canada Rubber Group Inc. (CRGI) can help include:
Body and lighting. Silicone rubber can be used to provide durable weather-tight and weatherproof seals for lighting assemblies and body trim.
Chassis and braking systems. Isolators and dampers fabricated from silicone rubber to enhance vehicle ride and handling. Essential fluids and lubricants to effectively contain and seal-in-place with gaskets, seals, dust covers and boots made from silicone rubbers.
Powertrain. High performance silicone gaskets that effectively seal critical fluids and gases under high temperatures and pressures, while withstanding abrasion, flexing stress, and chemical attack. Isolators and dampers that significantly reduce NVH in engine and chassis assemblies.
Vehicle interior. Reducing squeaks and rattles with silicone rubber cable spacers, climate control system sleeves, components for airbag/aircurtain systems, etc.
Electrical systems. High performance silicone rubber seals and gaskets for electrical system connectors. These seals and gaskets prevent the ingress of dirt, dust and moisture, while resisting weathering, aging and compression set.
Miscellaneous vehicle applications. Grommets, plugs, and other custom products fabricated from high performance silicone rubbers.
