BISCO® Silicone Foam

BISCO® Overview

BISCO® Silicone Foam is a synthetic silicone rubber product produced by Rogers Corporation. BISCO® Silicone Foam is available in both open and closed cell forms. Laser processing BISCO® Silicone Foam is possible with a 9.3 or a 10.6 micron CO2 laser. The energy from a 1.06 micron fiber laser is not absorbed by BISCO® Silicone Foam and is not recommended for use with this material. Laser cutting of BISCO® Silicone Foam with a CO2 laser produces a sharp cut with a slightly charred edge which can be cleaned after processing. Laser engraving of BISCO® Silicone Foam with a CO2 laser produces depth with some debris on the surface which can be easily removed. Laser marking of BISCO® Silicone Foam is not possible with the 1.06, 9.3, or 10.6 micron wavelengths.
