Being based in the West Midlands, we are perfectly placed to be able to access all areas of the country with relative ease. This enables us to serve customers right across the UK quickly and easily. It’s this personal touch which ensures that customers return to Rocon Foam time and time again.
The quality of our Foam Products is also something which impresses our customers. Our silicon foam, for example, provides superior resistance and thermal stability, making it ideal in a number of applications. Silicone is flame retardant and UV resistant, too, and is commonly used in situations where the Foam Products will be exposed to high temperature variations.
Some uses of silicon foam include gaskets and seals, thermal insulation systems, HVAC applications and mouldings and extrusions for cords and tubing. Generally speaking, silicone foam is best used as an insulating foam or where protection against heat is required. Silicon is a very versatile material in terms of being able to withstand very high temperatures without melting, changing shape or warping.
As a result, silicon foam is often used in manufacturing high temperature tubes for autoclaves, as well as being used as a material for firestops, surfactants and gaskets. When silicone foam is being mixed, hydrogen gas is created, which causes bubbles to form within the rubber material itself as it becomes a solid. The outward pressure can be manipulated by temperature or humidity, giving the silicone foam the required properties for that specific purpose.
