Description: Style AG6008 is a 60 durometer translucent grade silicone gasketing material designed for use in a wide variety of gasketing applications. This low volatile material is peroxide free and takes a low compression set. 60 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. Style AG6008 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. 60 durometer translucent grade silicone provides excellent UV and ozone resistance and is non-toxic. A unique feature of Style AG6008 60 durometer translucent grade silicone is that it is non-yellowing, which means the material will not discolor over time. Commonly used in applications where food is present, 60 durometer translucent grade silicone is formulated to meet 3-A Sanitary Standard 18-03 Class IV.
Atlantic Gasket’s translucent grade silicone gasketing material is also available in 50 durometer (AG5008) and in 70 Durometer (AG7008). Additional durometers can be produced. 60 durometer translucent grade silicone can be converted into rolls ranging from as narrow as 1/4" wide, up to 36" in width. Atlantic Gasket can supply 60 durometer translucent grade silicone without adhesive or with either our standard acrylic adhesive or our high-temperature acrylic adhesive. AG6008 can be manufactured to standard and custom thicknesses. Atlantic Gasket has the capability to fabricate 60 durometer translucent grade silicone by die-cutting or waterjet cutting to meet both prototype and production requirements.
