Silicone sheets in north america

Post by Wheatlpa » Fri Jun 07, 2019 7:02 am

Hi All,

I am trying to find a source for silicone sheets here in north america. I have searched the forum with no luck. I have emailed a source in Germany but they will not ship a small amount that i need and getting triple the size just so they will ship also greatly increases the shipping costs. I have also contacted a supplier in China as listed on the wiki but they never returned my emails.

So, if anyone has a suggestion or connection can you let me know. I could go the plastic route, but i just feel bad about throwing away large amounts of plastic after the vacuum process is done.

Thanks!

Pat

Hows bout these?
http://sscrubber.com
Http://www.rubbercal.com

The chinese are the hungriest.
U should hear from someone in 12 hours minimum if not try another. There all prolly part of the same conglomerate owed by the government. Try to post a supplier request with specifics? Size thickness durometer elongation tear...yadda yadda.

Hi MM,

Thanks for the tip and sorry for the delay in saying so. I contacted SSCRubber and they had everything i was looking for. Now i just need to figure out the best way to building the mould for the ski press. Look for more questions soon.

I would try to get a sheet that has a elongation in the 700 range - anything less is extra work. I couldn’t find anything reasonably priced in the states so a Chinese one was about $200 including shipping. I used rubber cal sheets for a few years but they didn’t last and weren’t flexible enough. Same with the sheets from joe woodworker. The 700 sheets from rubber cal were expensive. I’ll look up the info if you need it. It took a couple of weeks to get it.
