Bluestar Silicones at Chinaplas: to Present its Range of Elastomers for Sealing Applications and more

Published on 2015-05-12. Author : SpecialChem

As one of the world’s leading manufacturers of silicones, Bluestar Silicones presents its customized specialty silicones rubber with high performance at the 29th International Exhibition on Plastics and Rubber Industries (CHINAPLAS 2015) for the wide applications in the fields of automobile, wire and cable, food contact and medical device.

At this CHINAPLAS 2015, Bluestar Silicones showcases its wide range of products, including the new BLUESIL MF 7471 U FR for high thermal resistant cables used in the railway vehicles and new BLUESIL MF 9200 series high-performance elastomers for sealing in automotive application.


This product is a kind of low smoke halogen free-flame retardant silicones rubber used for the railway vehicles. Compared with the traditional silicone rubber, BLUESIL MF 7471 U FR adopts the platinum flame-retardant technology combined with the special flame-retardant additive for the silicone rubber to maintain the high-strength of mechanical property, hydrophobic property and insulating property while achieving the high fire resistance. Usually, the traditional silicone rubber makes use of mineral filling for fire resistance which can have the good flame retardant efficiency but with the reduction of insulativity, water repellency and mechanical strength of silicone rubber itself.

With the development of China high-speed railways towards the north and other high and cold areas, the minimum operating temperature reaches -40℃ while the railway generate the extremely high temperature during the high-speed operation. The test proves that BLUESILTM MF 7471 U FR high thermal silicones rubber of Bluestar Silicones still has excellent both low and high temperature resistance properties, flexibility and mechanical strength between -60℃ and 250℃ . BLUESILTM MF 7471 U FR has passed TUV certification in full compliance with the technical requirements of EU EN50382. Now, this product has been successfully applied in the power system insulation of motor as the core component of high-speed railways, and well recognized by the world’s largest cable company.

BLUESIL MF 9200 products

BLUESIL MF 9200 series products are specially designed for ensuring sufficient sealing of under the hood application for automotive, possess the outstanding low compression set for recoverable deformation after the long-term use. The wide application of automotive turbocharger technology and the sustainable improvement of fuel efficiency nowadays have led to the demanding requirements for high thermal resistance of engine. With the excellent high thermal resistance, BLUESILTM MF 9200 series products are still able to maintain the excellent mechanical property at the high temperature of 250℃ under the extremely hard conditions. In addition, under the aging test conditions of hot oil for ASTM Type 901 and 903 of the United States Standard, BLUESILTM MF 9200 series products also show their low swelling property. Now, this series products have the mature and wide applications in the cylinder liner gasket sealing of automotive engine, O ring, automotive rubber hose and others thanks to their excellent mechanical properties of low compression set, heat resistance and oil resistance.
