Description: Style AG7008 is a 70 durometer translucent grade silicone gasketing material designed for use in a wide variety of gasketing applications. Style AG7008 offers extreme high and low temperature resistance, with a service temperature of -80°F to +450°F, and has the ability to withstand +500°F on an intermittent basis. 70 durometer translucent grade silicone provides excellent UV and ozone resistance and is non-toxic. This low volatile material is peroxide free and takes a low compression set. 50 durometer translucent grade silicone is manufactured with FDA approved ingredients listed in CFR 117.2600, an FDA regulation which deals with rubber articles intended for repeated use in contact with food. This low volatile material is peroxide free and takes a low compression set. Commonly used in applications where food is present, a unique feature of Style AG7008 70 durometer translucent grade silicone is that it is non-yellowing, which means the material will not discolor over time.
