Silicone Cord


Ideal for Pressure Box and Mold Base Seals

silicone cordThe thermoforming environment requires high-temperature durable seals. Our 70-durometer silicone rubber cord is extruded in H, A and O cross sections to meet your thermoforming tool-building requirements.


Especially suited for pressure boxes, our "H" seal forms tighter compression for positive sheet-gripping and creates a double seal that eliminates blowouts and squeal.


The "O", "H" and "A" sealing cords have a variety of applications (see chart below).

Save time. Save the hassle. Buy your silicone cord groove end mills directly from Segen!

Our solid carbide, end mills are made specifically for cutting the precision grooves for installation of our silicone cord.


(For best results, always pre-cut a smaller groove to remove excess material before running your new form cutter through the material. Recommended speed is 2500 RPM, with a feed-rate of 30 IPM. Ample coolant flow is strongly recommended. Feeds and speeds may vary slightly, depending on the depth and width of the seal groove.)
