BISCO® BF-2000 – Ultra Soft Silicone For Custom Gaskets and Seals
BISCO® BF-2000 Ultra Soft is a highly compressible silicone foam. The combination of low weight and softness makes this flame retardant foam ideal for transportation, industrial, and electronics applications where low closure force and dust sealing are critical. BISCO Silicones are available in various thicknesses and manufactured in roll form to allow fabricators to easily convert the material to the proper dimensions.

Features and Benefits
- Ultra low softness allows designers to use less force to seal enclosures and still protect their device from the environment.
- High compressibility allows material to conform to variable width gaps, thereby allowing more design flexibility.
- Excellent memory and low stress relaxation reduces maintenance costs associated with gasket failures due to compression set and softening.
- Resistance to ultraviolet light, ozone, extreme temperatures, and flame enables consistent performance in all environments.
- Available through distribution sites throughout North America, Europe, and Asia.
- Vibration isolation in electronic components and transportation vehicles
- Low closure force gaskets within portable electronics such as laptops and LCD screens within aircraft and rail interiors
- Fire retardant thermal insulation
- Available with a pressure-sensitive adhesive on one or two sides to allow easy application to a variety of surfaces.
