Silicone Rubber, Glass Braided
UL Recognized for use in electronic ignition or similar application in gas ranges or gas or fuel oil burner systems where protected from damage during handling, installation and servicing of the appliance. Silicone rubber is a very flexible, easily to terminate, relatively low cost, high temperature insulating material -80°C to +200°C (with glass overbraid) insulation. The silicone rubber compound is typically augmented with a braid for added abrasion resistance and increased flammability characteristics. Typical insulation thicknesses range from .020" to .045". Silicone rubber compounds are available which provide flame resistant insulation capable of passing Underwriters Laboratories vertical flame test VW-1, and the Mil-W-16878 specifications for flammability. Furthermore, silicone rubber compounds are fungus resistant, resistant to weathering, and because they are extremely stable and contains no sulphur, chlorine or other acid producing chemicals, do not not cause staining, corrosion or deterioration to other materials with which they come in contact ~ and have outstanding electrical characteristics.
