What is VMQ?
“VMQ” stands for Vinyl Methyl Silicone, which is a type of silicone rubber material commonly known as Silicone Rubber or Silicone Elastomer. VMQ is a versatile elastomer with a wide range of applications due to its unique combination of properties.
Colors: Custom Colors
Application: automotive seals, gaskets, medical devices, food-grade components, electrical insulation, O-rings, grommets, baby bottle nipples, bakeware, and more.
Recommended Wall Thickness: 1mm-10mm or even thicker.
Vinyl Methyl Silicone (VMQ) is chosen for applications requiring high-temperature resistance, electrical insulation, and overall durability in demanding environments. There is a table to show the common VMQ properties below.
