Silicone rubber is terribly susceptible to silicone oil absorption which is why I avoid Guarder hop up sleeves completely. Most of the seals used in airsoft are not silicone rubber because it actually has terrible tear resistance and it's intolerance to silicone oils that we use to condition most of our other seals makes it pretty garbage material.
