Silicone Rubber, 1000 Psi (6.89 Mpa) Minimum Tensile Strength, 55-65 Durometer
- Aerospace Material Specification
This specification covers a silicone rubber in the form of sheet, strip, tubing, molded shapes, and extrusions.
These products have been used typically for parts required to operate or seal at temperatures from -90 to +205 degrees C (-130 to +401 degrees F), compounded especially for high strength, but usage is not limited to such applications. Silicone elastomer is resistant to deterioration by weathering and aircraft piston engine oil and remains flexible over the temperature range noted. These products are not normally suitable for use in contact with gasoline or aromatic fuels and low-aniline-point petroleum-base fluids due to excessive swelling of the elastomer.

Welcome to the AMS-CE Elastomers Committee Discussion Forum.The AMS-CE Elastomers Committee maintains Aerospace Materials Specifications (AMS), Aerospace Recommended Practices (ARP), Aerospace Information Reports (AIR) and Aerospace Standards (AS) on elastomeric materials. AMS-CE, which reports to the Aerospace Materials Division, coordinates and maintains liaison with industry, government and other standardization groups on elastomeric materials. A significant part of this committee is concerned with elastomeric fluid sealing materials, their applications, material development, testing, quality, design parameters and design practices.
