MIL-DTL-25988 Fluorosilciones with Full COAs and Low MOQs

Specialty Silicone Products (SSP) makes MIL-DTL-25988 fluorosilicones with a full certificate of analysis (COA) for each batch and with no extra testing fees or costs. Plus, SSP supplies these military and aerospace silicones in sheets, rolls, and ready-to-mold compounds with low minimum order quantities (MOQs). Several of SSP’s MIL-DTL-25988 fluorosilicones have independent testing reports from Akron Rubber Development Laboratory, Inc. (ARDL), and all of SSP’s MIL-DTL-25988 [...]

EMI O-Rings: Applications and SSP’s Advantages

Electromagnetic interference (EMI) occurs when external electromagnetic energy mixes with another electronic system and then disturbs the system's original flow. EMI is one of the identified causes of the decrease in performance or, in some cases, the failure of electronic devices. To put it in perspective, an example includes external signals that may interfere with the sensitive equipment in an airplane. Other EMI sources may be coming from older consumer electronics without EMI shielding, [...]

Low Outgassing Silicones with ASTM E595 Test Data

Specialty Silicone Products (SSP) makes low outgassing silicones and publishes the ASTM E595 test data that we receive from independent laboratories. All third-party test reports are available on SSP’s website so that you can view and download the results. Pacific Testing Laboratories of Valencia, California has tested numerous EMI/RFI silicones and Exova OCM has tested a 60-durometer sample of a USP Class VI silicone. Currently, several grades of SSP’s aerospace elastomers are being [...]

EMI Shielding for 5G Telecommunications Gaskets

5G telecommunications gaskets need reliable EMI shielding for electronic enclosure seams, power and signal panels, and connector backshells. As 5G networks proliferate, the isolation of sensitive circuits and electronic systems is becoming increasingly important, especially in urban environments. Noise from power supplies, propagation from repeater station antennas, and other forms of electromagnetic interference (EMI) can degrade electronic system isolation and increase crosstalk between [...]

Faces of SSP: Meet Chuck Geysen, Quality Manager

Specialty Silicone Products (SSP) is pleased to introduce Chuck Geysen as our new Quality Manager. Chuck is responsible for driving the culture of quality at our Ballston Spa, New York (USA) manufacturing company and will focus on updating and improving SSP’s Quality Management System (QMS). This includes a strong emphasis on effectiveness and key metrics, adherence to ISO 9001:2015 requirements, and root cause/corrective actions to achieve year-over-year reductions in non-conformances. [...]
