AGSIFIRES is a flame retardant closed cell soft density silicone sponge which is designed for gasket applications requiring a low compression set, a resistance to extreme temperatures, and flammability measures. The flame retardant soft density silicone sponge has a closed cell structure which prevents water absorption of less than 3% per ASTM D1056 and has a smooth surface finish allowing for better sealing and the ability to apply an adhesive. AGSIFIRES meets the UL94 HB and FMVSS 302 specifications. It also meets self-extinguishing and UL flammability classification. Atlantic Gasket’s AGSIFIRE silicone sponge endures a temperature range of -76°F (-60°C) to 500°F (260°C) intermittent and also has excellent resistance to oxidation, UV, ozone, and weathering.
AGSIFIRES flame retardant soft density silicone sponge, offered by Atlantic Gasket, comes in a variety of widths, thicknesses, and a red color. This silicone sponge is also available in flame retardant medium density (AGSIFIREM) and flame retardant firm density (AGSIFIREF) along with widths of up to 36” and thicknesses from .062” to .500”. AGSIFIRES has the ability to have a pressure sensitive adhesive laminated to this silicone sponge, and Atlantic Gasket can slit it to widths as narrow as ¼" or as wide as 36". The silicone sponge can be cut to size for custom parts either using our high-speed die-cutting process or our high-precision waterjet-cutting machine for production quantities and/or prototype requirements.
