BORSIL

BORSIL is a broad portfolio of silicone-based elastomers for extreme thermal and chemical conditions.

We can distinguish different ranges of silicones:

  • regular silicones with a standard continuous temperature resistance of -50°C to +200°C can be increased to 250°C,
  • high tear-resistant silicones,
  • high resilient silicones, with a exceptionally high  compression resistance,
  • low temperature resistant silicones with a continuous temperature resistance of -110°C to +200°C,
  • high temperature silicones with a continuous temperature resistance of -50°C to +300°C,
  • heat conductor or conductive  silicones,
  • smart photoluminescent silicones (3 colors available),
  • thermochromic silicones (possibility of choice of temperature and color transition, programmable 3 colors and 3 temperatures).

BORSIL compounds range successfully meet ATA (Air Transport Association of America) specifications (50, 52, 53 and 54 for silicones, and 61 and 63 for fluorinated silicones).

FLEXCOAT®

[:fr]Protection et réparation des inserts métalliques par notre procédé composite [:en]Overall composite protection and repairing solution for metal inserts and roller cores

Numerous components evolve in aggressive environments such as, for instance, squeegee rolls for pickling lines in the steel industry. The lack of chemical protection or a poor chemical protection of the metal core (mainly flanges and journals) may cause severe damages. In worse cases, the roller core will even be rejected.

Benefits of the substitution of the ebonite by the glass fiber reinforced composite solution (FLEXCOAT®):

  • Higher mechanical resistance (shock and impact resistance)
  • Exceptional chemical resistance and stability (specially formulated resin)
  • Largely improved bonding properties
  • Superior thermal stability
  • Conservation of the metal part (multiple covering & recoating operations)
  • Recovering with the FLEXCOAT® technology in order to restore the initial diameter for former holders
  • Rollers that are damaged by corrosion can be fully repaired

Benefits of the total steel substitution by the FLEXCOAT® technology :

  • Impressive weight gain (sleeves for instance)

FLEXIBORE®

Thermal neutrons absorption

As a rubber solutions provider, BORFLEX remains committed to innovation in its products and technology.

We inspire our customers with our groundbreaking ideas.

We have developed and optimized FLEXIBORE® , a specific powdered bore (B4C) natural rubber compound.

FLEXIBORE ® finished product contains 50% of its weight in B4C powder. The B10 included in our material absorbs the neutrons . The diffusion effect  is not significant, compared to the neutron absorption.

FLEXIBORE ® is also used in neutron spectrometry to reduce background noise.

ISOFA
