Vacuum Press Membranes For Thermoforming And Woodworking

Vacuum press membranes, also called vacuum membranes or silicone membranes, are mainly used for woodworking vacuum presses in bending, forming, laminating and veneering flat and curved surfaces. Our silicone membranes have built a good reputation worldwide for their high elasticity and durability. The silicone membrane is versatile due to its ability to withstand high and low extremes with its broad working temperature range. Unlike natural rubber membranes, our silicone rubber membranes are available in different durometers, as well as smooth or textured surfaces, ensuring that each customer can find the correct silicone membrane for their veneer pressing, wood bending, and composite materials lamination application. Building on its success, Deer Hunter continues to research and develop thermoforming silicone plates specific to the various industries they serve.

Silicone membrane with single-sided textured surface

Textured silicone membrane can be used for vacuum forming solid surface materials (CORIAN, HI- MACS, STARON, Hanex, Avonite, Krion, etc.), thermoplastic such as acrylic, PVC, and also suitable for wood/MDF door and furniture 3D foil lamination. Because of its high temperature resistance and textured finish, the membrane has proven to be the superior choice for vacuum heat presses, where continuous air evacuation is needed.

I purchased 2pcs & 2mm X 1750mm X 2050mm high temperature resistance silicone membrane from DH at an affordable price. Our vacuum table is working very well with incredible turnaround times. In this pro-covid time,  what we have now is a practical approach and everyone just take good care of himself and keep going. In addition, Young is a nice easy-going guy and help me a lot, thanks!

We are looking for the silicone membrane 2 or 3 mm thickness, transparent, 1500 mm wide 14000 mm length. I see that DH2211 would be great. After further negotiation with Young, he really gave me some practical suggestions. Finally, we bought 2mm X 1500mm X 14M as a trial order. It is now working very well for veneer pressing and wood bending in our furniture production.

FAQs

1: Silicone membranes VS Natural rubber membranes?

Silicone membranes offer superior strength, high elasticity and films that are high temperature resistance up to 250°C. Many silicone membranes are highly recommended for woodworking and furniture production. Unlike natural rubber membranes, silicone membrane exhibits excellent extremes in weather conditions including temperature, sulfurization and UV exposure. In addition, some silicone membranes are designed to be hydrophobic making them a better choice in wet or humid environments. Natural rubber membrane is a kind of vulcanized natural rubber sheets, only developed for vacuum membrane presses with working temperature till 100-130°C. It is typically a less expensive choice than silicone membrane; however, it is best used in areas that have mild weather conditions or indoors with limited exposure to sunlight.

2: How much does silicone membrane cost?

The cost of silicone membranes can vary drastically depending on the material, size and complexity of applications. Generally speaking, prices for thin silicone membranes range from $20 to $30 per square meter, while thick membranes can range from $60 to $80 per square meter. Just tell us the dimension and quantity you want, and then we will give you some discount on our vacuum press membranes.

3: Which material is most commonly used in vacuum membrane presses?

Vacuum membrane presses are commonly used to process a wide variety of materials including wood veneer, metal, composite materials, rubber, plastic and fiberboard. Under high working temperature over 130°C, high tear resistant silicone membrane (DH2211) is the best vacuum press membrane material.

4: What can damage silicone membrane?

Exposure to ultraviolet radiation, ozone, and extreme temperatures can damage silicone membranes and reduce their effectiveness. They are also prone to oxidation and degradation due to exposure to some harsh chemicals and solvents. To extend the life of your silicone membrane, store it in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight.

5: How long does silicone membrane last?

That's really a tricky question.There are many factors outside of our control. Silicone membranes are known for their long life span and extreme durability. This type of membrane is often referred to as “elastomeric”, which means it is capable of stretching under stress and then returning back to its original shape. With proper installation and maintenance, our high elasticity silicone membrane can last well over 5 years.
