Architectural Building Gaskets

Architectural building gaskets formed from silicone rubber have been used in the building industry for years as silicone offers many valuable benefits not typically found in organic rubber. It is thermally stable and flexible from -50ºc to +250ºc, extremely resistant to ozone degradation and weathering, can be pigmented in any colour (including metallic finishes), and has excellent physical strength.

Silicone Altimex manufactures a wide range of silicone extrusion profiles for architectural building gasket applications in a vast array of colours. Our profiles can be seen adorning the faces of some of Europe’s most prestigious buildings.

Typical applications include:

  • Curtain walling systems
  • Structural glazing gaskets
  • Fire retardant ducting
  • Architectural wall cladding systems
  • Decorative in-fill and expansion joints
  • Structural and non-structural
