About Arlon Silicone Technologies Division

Company Profile


Arlon LLC, a division of Handy & Harman Ltd., has been a leader in silicone rubber and silicone adhesive technologies since 1954. Silicone rubber is a unique elastomer that delivers high performance electrical insulation in low temperature and high temperature environments. We focus on precision-calendered silicone rubber coated fabric sheets and specialty extruded silicone rubber tapes. Arlon offers the highest performance reinforced silicone solutions in a broad range of products for aircraft, aerospace, and automotive applications to substrates for flame retardant flexible heaters, ducting, and motor coil insulation.

  By specializing exclusively in silicone, we have developed unmatched technical competence. Our development team can custom design materials and processes from the ground up for the most demanding and complex requirements. Learn more about Arlon's silicone engineering and process capabilities.

  Arlon pursues the most rigorous quality standards and controls. The Quality Management System used by Arlon is certified to ISO9001:2008 quality assurance standards. We have incorporated statistical process control methods throughout our manufacturing operations to assure calendering accuracy and precision. 

Our on-site laboratories are equipped to perform full silicone rubber product evaluations (inluding tensile elongation, lap shear strength, dielectric strength, thermal conductivity, and chemical resistance). Our continual focus on quality has resulted in a world-class customer product acceptance rate.

Arlon engineers advance new products from concept through manufacturing and continually improve upon existing processes and equipment. They frequently work hand-in-hand with our customers At Arlon, focus on customer requirements is paramount -- from our customer support specialists to our sales and applications engineers.
