Silicone sponges are flame resistant

Rogers Corporation has introduced new Poron HT-800 silicone sponge materials that have been certified to the stringent UL-94V-0 and UL-94HF-1 flame classifications.

Rogers reckons the new silicone sponge materials will be of interest to developers of electronic and electrical equipment, who need UL certified materials in order to ensure their own products earn UL classification.

All Poron silicone materials are characterised by their high resistance to compression set, and resistance to temperature extremes. Their flame retardant properties allow them to satisfy the most stringent transportation industry standards regarding fire and toxic smoke emission for use in passenger jets, trains, and other vehicles.
