Siltec’s technology portfolio enables the production of extrudates with fabric reinforcements, e.g. glass fabric inserts for over- and underpressure tubes. Siltec also offers the coextrusion process, which enables the combination of different shore hardnesses, colors or material properties in a single extrudate. For example, a silicone profile can be produced with a hard foot and a soft profile head.
The surface structure of the silicone extrudates can be modified according to customer requirements. Thus, particularly slippery and smooth surfaces can be produced by a FA treatment or a surface structure with grooves for a better haptic and grip. A detailed overview of the possible surface modifications can be found here.
For better identification, your silicone extrudates can be labelled, printed or marked with color or contrast stripes during production. Here you will find an overview of the various marking and marking options such as inline printing and laser marking.
