Silicone rubber (VMQ)

VMQ O-ring

VMQ O-rings from COG

Areas of application of this rubber are suggested by its outstanding temperature resistance (-55 °C to +200 °C), although this must not be applied to hot water or steam. Although silicone rubber almost matches NBR in oil resistance, it does not match the latter's physical and mechanical properties.
