Custom Thicknesses for SSP Continuous Silicone Sheet



Custom Thicknesses for SSP Continuous Silicone Sheet

Most suppliers of continuous silicone sheet make products in standard thicknesses such as .032, .062, .093, and .125 inches. If you’re a buyer who needs continuous silicone sheeting in a custom thickness, however, you’ll probably find that the minimum order quantity (MOQ) is higher because of setup times and custom call outs. Projects that need continuous silicone sheet like this don’t just incur additional costs. They’re at risk of falling behind if your silicone supplier already has long lead times.

For engineers, there are other risks as well. For example, you may need to change your gasket design, housing, or application because the silicone sheeting that you need costs too much or is not readily available. Problems like this are unacceptable. At Specialty Silicone Products (SSP), we want you to be able to get continuous silicone sheet in whatever thickness you need – and without the headaches and delays associated with custom runs or design changes.  

SSP offers 12-inch wide continuous silicone sheet in minimum runs of just 30 feet. Our Ballston Spa, New York (USA) manufacturing facility can also produce continuous silicone sheeting in any custom thickness from .005” to .250”. Do you need a product that is .068 or .0174 inches thick? SSP can do that! Plus, whether you need materials in standard or custom thicknesses, SSP prides itself on its turnaround times, commitment to quality, and customer service.

There are other advantages to working with us as well. If you’re a gasket fabricator, you can specify silicone sheet in a custom thickness that makes it harder for competitors to bid the job, especially if your customer’s purchasing department starts shopping around. You’ll also improve your ability to satisfy cost-conscious original equipment manufacturer (OEM) customers. For example, If your OEM requires silicone sheeting in a custom thickness, they can keep their gasket design and you can keep their business. 

Do you need continuous silicone sheet in a custom thickness? May you need a standard product with better service, quality, or availability instead. For continuous silicone sheeting that works for you, contact SSP on-line or email Dominic Testo.
