Most commercially available silicone sponge products are made from gum based polydimethylsiloxane (PMDS). The polymer is chemically expanded when heat cured to create the closed cell sponge structure. Closed cell means that the cells are non-interconnecting; therefore they do not allow water to wick through the sponge.
Generally, silicone sponges have superior mechanical properties and offer many of the performance benefits of solid silicone in a softer and more compliant form.
