What is Silicone Rubber Sheet?
Silicone rubber sheet, or Q sheet, is a synthetic rubber material offering multiple advantages over other rubber materials. Our silicone rubber sheeting is commonly used in hygienic industry settings, as all of the silicone sheet options that we offer are manufactured to meet FDA (Food and Drug Administration) requirements. It is for this reason that silicone sheeting is often popular in the catering or food manufacturing and pharmaceutical industries.

Silicone Rubber Sheet Properties & Temperature Range
Silicone rubber sheeting offers an excellent temperature range and very good resistance to weathering, UV and sunlight ageing. One of the many extraordinary silicone rubber sheet properties is that it is extremely resilient and can uphold a lot of its properties at very high and low temperatures. In fact, some grades of silicone rubber sheeting are even known to stay flexible at temperatures between -100°C and 315°C. This makes silicone rubber sheeting the ideal material for applications with such extreme temperatures.
Another remarkable silicone rubber sheet property is that it can be compounded to provide a low level of resistance in order to conduct signal voltages. Other silicone rubber sheet properties include:
- Good elongation at break
- High tensile strength
- High tear resistance
