XHF | Silicone Provides Great Solutions for the Automotive Seals
Currently, the automotive industry provides up to 80 million vehicles per year, continually evolves, and demands new high-performance application areas inside and outside the vehicle. These new advanced automotive components are frequently designed to reduce weight and fuel consumption, resulting in smaller and more compact engine compartments.
The reduced space leads to higher temperatures and more stress on vital parts due to increased air pressure, greater water flow, more powerful fuel injection, and corrosive fluids.
Traditional materials often cannot handle these demanding requirements and frequently need help to withstand these high temperatures and harsh conditions.
XHF silicone seals are the perfect solution for automotive sealing requirements. Our seals are manufactured using high-grade materials and come in various sizes and shapes. They provide superior resistance against abrasion, corrosion, and chemicals and long-lasting durability.
XHF silicone seals are designed to be vibration resistant and provide an excellent seal for automotive applications. They are also easy to install, requiring no special tools or knowledge.
With XHF silicone seals, you can rest assured that your vehicle is protected from dirt, moisture, and other contaminants.
Why silicone provides an excellent solution for automobile seals?
Silicone is an excellent choice for automobile seals because of several reasons.
- Thermal stability:Silicone can withstand extreme temperatures, making it ideal for automotive seals.
- Compression set: Silicone has excellent compression-set characteristics; it retains shape and will not degrade over time. This ensures a tight seal even under extreme conditions.
- Chemical resistance:Silicone is highly resistant to chemicals and other damaging substances, making it an excellent choice for automotive seals.
- Durability: Silicone is a strong material that can last many years, making it the perfect choice for long-term use in automobile applications.
- Cost efficiency:Silicone seals are often more cost-effective than others, offering great value for money.
How can silicone be used in the automotive industry?
Silicone can be used for a variety of applications in the automotive industry, including:
- Acoustic & vibration insulation: Silicone reduces noise and vibrations from engines, exhausts, and other parts. Silicone dampers reduce road vibrations and improve the ride comfort of a vehicle.
- Seals & gaskets:Silicone seals and gaskets provide a secure seal around delicate components or between two components.
- Thermal insulation: Silicone can be used for thermal insulation, helping to keep car interiors cooler in hot climates. Silicone wire and cable insulation can reduce heat loss and extend the life of cables.
- Protection & safety:Silicone provides a protective layer around sensitive or hazardous components and is flame-retardant.
- Sealing profiles:Silicone shapes can create perfect seals between parts and provide a clean, professional finish.
- Hoses:Silicone hoses are used for fuel lines, oil passageways, and other applications.
- Connectors:Silicone connectors are strong and corrosion-resistant, making them perfect for automotive applications.
- Protection caps:Silicone protection caps can protect delicate components from dust and debris.
- Turbo-compressor valves:Silicone turbo-compressor valves can handle high temperatures and pressures.
If you want a reliable and durable solution for automotive seals, XHF silicone seals are perfect. They have the following features:
- Heat stability,with temperatures ranging from -60 °C to +300 °C (which can be increased to 300 °C with specific additives).
- Insulation and mechanical performance that outperforms standard organic polymers, including long-term vibration resistance.
- High heat and fire resistance.
- Low smoke emissions and non-corrosive and non-toxic combustion.
- Excellent compression set characteristics, meaning it retains shape and will not degrade over time.
- Highly resistant to chemicals and other damaging substances.
- Long-lasting durability makes it the perfect choice for long-term use in automobile applications.
