e-Sil 100 Series

Conductive Carbon/Silicone Rubber

Download as PDF
e-Sil 100 is a silicone rubber filled with a special conductive carbon. Excellent electrical properties with superior strength and physical properties are achieved by special selection of elastomer type and fine tuning of carbon type and concentration. These properties are maintained over an extremely wide temperature range.
Ideal for static discharge and corona applications.  e-sil100.jpg
Excellent voltage handling capability for grounding and lower current densities.
Effective over a wide range of temperature.
Superior tensile strength comparing to competing materials.
Excellent compression set to maintain sealing force over very long period of time.
Chemical resistance for process cleaning agents.
Available in sheets in every thickness and custom die-cut parts.
Available also in custom molded parts to any shape.
