Product Announcement from Merryweather Foam, Inc.
Do you have a cushioning or sealing need? Silicones are ideal for sealing, cushioning, vibration isolation, insulation and thermal management gaskets. Their resistance to environmental extremes, mechanical resilience and safety features make them perfectly suited for critical applications in transportation equipment, communications and electrical enclosures, electronic products and components, industrial machinery and appliances.
- High and low temperature gaskets, cushions and seals - Radiant heat shields
BISCO® Silicones are a full line of cellular, solid and specialty silicone materials produced in roll-stock to be fabricated into gaskets, heat shields, fire stops, seals, cushions and insulation for industrial applications.
These materials are resistant to temperature extremes, UV and ozone and are extremely resilient to mechanical fatigue. They exhibit excellent compression-set and creep resistance. All cellular products carry the most stringent UL flame ratings available.
BISCO Cellular Silicones are available in a wide range of firmnesses and are ideal for use as gaskets and seals, cushions, and thermal and acoustic insulation in demanding conditions. Both open- and closed-cell offerings withstand temperatures from -67°F up to 400°F (-55°C to 204°C). All of these products possess unsurpassed compression-set resistance, making them an excellent long-term sealing material for electrical and communication enclosures, electronics, high intensity discharge lighting (HID) enclosures, and appliances. They pass stringent smoke and toxicity regulations, making them critical in many mass transportation applications. They also carry the most stringent UL flame ratings available, 94V-0 and 94HF-1, as a result they are frequently chosen for insulation and vibration applications inside communication enclosures, electronic products and industrial machinery.
BISCO Solid Silicone Materials are designed for high temperature and high pressure gasketing applications. They are available in a range of thicknesses and durometers. They offer high temperature resistance (-80° to +425°F, -62° to +218°C), excellent sealability, UV and ozone resistance, and excellent recovery after compression. BISCO Solid Silicone Materials are designed for high temperature and high pressure gasketing applications. They are available in a range of thicknesses and durometers. They offer high temperature resistance (-80° to +425°F, -62° to +218°C), excellent sealability, UV and ozone resistance, and excellent recovery after compression.
BISCO General Purpose Solid Silicones are offered in a range of durometers from 40-70 Shore A. Standard products are available in thicknesses of 0.031" to 0.125" and certain grades are also available with fiberglass reinforcement for added dimensional stability and increased tear strength.
BISCO Performance Solids offer greater versatility for a variety of challenging designs in a variety of colors. They are are offered in a range of durometers from 10-60 Shore A. Standard products are available in thicknesses of 0.010" to 0.125". Their tight tolerances and softness makes them ideal for demanding sealing applications.
BISCO EC-2000 Electrically Conductive Solid Silicones are an ideal EMI/RFI shielding solution when high shielding effectiveness is a must. They are the softest conductive solids on the market today (Shore A 30 and 40), exhibiting exceptional compression force deflection to increase design flexibility for all types of enclosures. Further, the shielding effectiveness that most products only achieve with silver filled product, BISCO EC-2000 Electrically Conductive Solid Silicones achieve with a nickel filled product, lowering cost without sacrificing Shielding Effectiveness. These materials are suitable for use across a wide temperature range (-80° to +425°F, -62° to +218°C) and are available as continuous, 36" wide rolls to increase customer yields.
BISCO Specialty Silicone Materials are a line of products designed to meet specific industry needs. The materials include acoustic barriers, a patented fire blocking material, a silicone coated fiberglass cloth, and molded silicone foam tubes. All of these materials can withstand extreme temperatures and meet stringent industry flame tests.
