AMS 3303 Silicone Rubber, 60 Durometer
SSP-352 is a 60-durometer silicone rubber that meets the physical requirements in the AMS 3303 specification. This heat-cured elastomer is also designed to meet the AA 59588 2A &2B, Grade 60 spec. SSP-352 uses a DBPH or dicumyl peroxide system and is supplied as compression molded sheet stock or a ready-to-mold compound. It can be pigmented as required, but the most popular colors are red and black.
AMS 3303 Specification
The AMS 3303 specification covers silicone rubber in the form of sheets, strips, tubing, extrusions, and molded shapes. SAE International, a professional association and standards-developing organization, defines Aerospace Material Specifications (AMS) like AMS 3303.
AMS 3303 Shelf Life
The shelf life for uncatalyzed SSP-352 is indefinite, but this military and aerospace silicone may need freshening after 1 to 2 years. When catalyzed, the shelf life is 6 months. Cold storage will extend the shelf life for this general-purpose silicone rubber.
