Silicone Rubber with High Flex-Fatigue Resistance

Important: This article contains additional information about SSP's flex-fatigue resistant silicones. Silicones resist a wide range of service temperatures, but they don’t always offer strong flex-fatigue resistance – a measure of an elastomer’s ability to withstand repeated flexing or bending. Flex-fatigue resistance is an important requirement for military and aerospace applications, however, so design engineers and technical buyers need to source silicone rubber with care. [...]
