Silicone O-Rings (VMQ) Duro 50 - Brick Red - FDA:
The term silicone covers a large group of materials in which vinyl-methyl-silicone (VMQ) is often the central ingredient. Silicone elastomers as a group have relatively low tensile strength, poor tear and wear resistance. However, they have many useful properties as well. Silicone has a good heat resistance, good cold flexibility, and good ozone and weather resistance as well as good insulating and physiologically neutral properties.
- Heat resistance-Up to approximately 400°F (204°C)
- Cold flexibility-Down to approximately –75°F (–59°C)
