Silicone solutions

Reliable in Extremes

The know-how and focus on customer requirements distinguishes REHAU as a specialist in the area of hose and silicone technology. The REHAU range includes a variety of products made from silicone, and the material types are adjusted for specific customer applications.

Using high-quality, versitile, synthetic rubber, REHAU produces, amongst other products, hoses, profiles, moldings and boards with the latest equipment applying various production processes such as extrusion, foaming and compression molding.

Silicone rubber is a polymer material from the elastomer group. It is a material with excellent physical properties, particularly in extreme situations. In addition, REHAU silicone products can be extruded in special material formulations making it suitable for a wide range of applications.

Silicone Profiles, Seals, Sheets and Strips

Description

REHAU produces silicone profiles, seals, sheets and strips for most industry applications. Our products are available in:

  • RAU-SIK compact and foamed
  • Any cross-section required, or as a co-extrudate
  • With self-adhesive tape or low-friction surface coating

Typical applications of REHAU silicone profiles include:

  • Shower seals
  • Grafting clips used in agriculture
  • Sun roof seals
  • Balcony profiles and seals
  • Chimney and flue gas profiles and seals
  • Oven seals and gaskets


Typical properties of REHAU Silicone RAU-SIK:

  • Resistant to a constant temperature in dry heat of up to approx. +392°F, in special formulations up to approx. +572°F and to approx. +599°F for a short time
  • Flexible at low temperatures up to approx. −76°F, special formulations up to approx. −130°F
  • Permanently elastic at high and low temperatures
  • Excellent shape retention once solid
  • Ageing, weathering, ozone and UV-resistant
  • Neutral smell and taste
  • Resistant to many chemicals
  • Water-repellent
  • Electrically insulating
  • Without plasticizers, therefore no plasticizers migration
  • Vapor and steam-resistant up to approx. 2 bar
  • Flame-retardant
  • Flue-gas resistant

Silicone hoses

REHAU manufactures silicone hoses for almost every area of application, available in a broad range of sizes and specifications to meet the individual requirement. Our silicone hose product range is made up of the following:

  • RAUSIL - 'Talcum-coated' silicone hose providing a lubricated surface for easier processing e.g. cutting to length.
  • RAULAB - 'Untalcumed' silicone hose, better transparency, used for applications where visual monitoring is required, e.g. in laboratory work.
  • RAUSIMOLL - 'Foamed' silicone hose, providing thermal insulation in extreme temperatures.
  • RAUSILAM - 'Fibre-reinforced' silicone hose, used in applications where high- pressure and temperature resistance is required.
  • REHAU's RAUSILAM hoses have been specifically developed for the area of Resin Transfer Moulding (RTM). REHAU provides a unique solution for this industry.

Typical applications of REHAU silicone profiles include:

  • Milk hoses for agriculture
  • Hoses for vending machines - hot and cold applications
  • Hoses for industrial kitchen equipment in food and beverage applications
  • High-pressure hoses for the automotive industry
  • High-pressure hoses for resin transfer in the aircraft/transportation industry
  • High-pressure hoses in machinery and plant equipment construction
  • Hoses for laboratory control
