Bisco BF-2000 Ultra Sof -Silicone Foam DiscPreviously called EP-2022, BISCO® BF-2000 – Ultra Soft Silicone Foam (liquid silicone base) has been a nice addition to Stockwell Elastomerics’ line of silicone products. With a typical force deflection of 1.5psi required to deflect the material 25%, it is the softest silicone foam material currently offered by Stockwell Elastomerics. BF-2000 has excellent rebound (compression set resistance), a wide operating temperature range, is UV resistant and is UL 94V-0 flame rated. These properties lend themselves to cushioning and padding for electronics or dust gaskets. LCD gaskets or touch screen gaskets are common applications due to the very low rebound force. Like the vast majority of materials carried by Stockwell Elastomerics, pressure sensitive adhesives (PSA), both acrylic and silicone, can be applied to one or both sides of the BF-2000 silicone foam.

Stockwell Elastomerics’ silicone foam offerings includes:

BF-1000 is an Extra Soft Silicone Foam with an open cell structure

F-12 is similar to BF-1000 except with a fabric finish on one side and slightly courser cell structure

HT-870 is a Soft Silicone Foam with an open cell structure

HT-800 is a Medium Silicone Foam with a modified closed cell structure

HT-820 is a Firm Silicone Foam with a modified closed cell structure

HT-840 is an Extra Firm Silicone Foam with a modified closed cell structure

All the above silicone foam products listed are UL 94V-0 listed (see specific datasheet for details).

    Much like a traditional spring, the load to compress an elastomer increases with the distance or amount of compression. In a static state the load will equal the rebound force of the spring or in this case an elastomer. Many manufactures publish Compression Force Deflection Curves (CFD curves) which graphically illustrate the force to % of compression. In an earlier blog post I give an example of how to use these curves. https://www.stockwell.com/blog/gasket-compression-pecentage-calculation/

    Thanks for your comment,
