Description: Style AG40HS is a 40 durometer high strength silicone gasketing material designed for use in gasketing applications where demanding physical properties need to be met. A premium grade silicone, Style AG40HS offers a high tensile strength and very good tear resistance. A fungus resistant material, 40 durometer high strength silicone also provides users with an extreme low and high temperature range, with a service temperature of -94°F to +450°F. Style AG40HS 40 durometer high strength silicone is manufactured with FDA approved ingredients listed in CFR 117.2600, an FDA regulation which involves rubber articles intended for repeated use in contact with food. The material takes a low compression set and offers excellent UV and ozone resistance. 40 durometer high strength silicone is formulated to meet the physical requirements of ZZ-R-765 Class 3B Grade 40 (with exception to flex test).
Atlantic Gasket’s high strength grade silicone gasketing material is available in a wide range of durometers, ranging from as soft as 30 Durometer (AG30HS) to as hard as 80 Durometer (AG80HS) with standard durometers in between. 40 durometer high strength silicone can be converted into rolls ranging from as narrow as 1/4" wide, up to 36" in width. Atlantic Gasket can supply 40 durometer high strength silicone without adhesive or choose from either our standard acrylic adhesive or our high-temperature acrylic adhesive. Style AG40HS can be manufactured to a wide range of standard and custom thicknesses. Atlantic Gasket has the ability to fabricate 40 durometer high strength silicone by die-cutting or waterjet cutting to meet your requirements and can provide support from the design stage through the production phase.
