Rubber Sheets

Natural NR / SBR Rubber Sheets

Natural Rubber Poly-isoprene is derived from latex liquid extracted from rubber trees. This rubber has excellent mechanical properties, low compression set and high resilience. It also has excellent dynamic and rebound properties. The operating temperature range is from -50° C to + 90° C. It is available in a wide range of hardness from 30° to 80° Shore A. Many of them have good resistance to acids, alkalis and salts. It is not recommended for use in areas where it could come in contact with oils and hydrocarbons. They are special purpose high abrasion resistant rubber sheet, made from premium quality dry Natural Rubber with outstanding resistance to cut, tear and abrasion used for anti-abrasion rubber linings for material handling equipment in mines.

Application wise, they are used as skirt-board sheets, bridge bearing pads, shot blasting sheets, Chute Lining, High Tensile Tan Gum sheets and commercial sheets with & without cotton insertion etc.

Commercial Grade Neoprene

Commercial Grade Neoprene rubber is an excellent general purpose polymer for most applications. This grade of rubber is used as a barrier or gasket material and can also be used inside rooms for sandblasting and impact resistance for industrial needs.

Commercial Grade Neoprene is known for its resistance to oil, gasoline, sunlight, ozone and oxidation material providing excellent cold temperature flexibility, abrasion resistance, repeated flexing applications, wide temperature range and has a physical toughness.

Applications: electrical insulation, wear resistant pads, vibration pads. isolation mounts, buffers, diaphragms, industrial matting, water retaining structures and in industrial applications such as gaskets, hoses, and corrosion-resistant coatings.

Superior Grade Neoprene Rubber Sheets

Superior Grade Neoprene rubber has a better resistance to rugged environments. The polymers in the rubber have increased tensile strength. This neoprene rubber has a nominal recovery from compression depending on the durometer. The superior strength rubber has excellent resistance to most alkalides and petroleum based products. It also handles the rigors of constant stretching and flexing while maintaining its physical characteristics.

Applications: industrial gaskets, medium duty diaphragms, compression fit pipes, industrial seals, cart or bed liners, and many uses for outdoor use.

EPDM Rubber Sheet

EPDM Sheeting is one of the most versatile types of sheeting and is the most suitable for outdoor applications. It is highly resistant to ageing, even when exposed to the most aggressive conditions: steam, UV rays, ozone, saltpeter or extreme weather conditions. EPDM sheets are used in general industry and in construction, marine and outdoor applications.Properties:

  • Excellent inherent high and low temperature ranges. Typically -45º C to +120º C for standard compounds.
  • Special compounding can increase some grades to function continually at +140 º C.
  • EPDM is inherently resistant to attack by oxygen, U.V., Ozone and extreme weather environments, and will give long service in these conditions.
  • EPDM does not have good adhesion properties.
  • Resistance to Chemicals; resistant to many chemicals and solvents. Good resistance to many corrosive chemicals. The performance of EPDM in hot water and high pressure steam is better than in dry heat.

Application:

  • Food Industries
  • Sealing

Silicone Rubbber Sheets

Silicone rubber sheeting is physiologically inert, thus making it the preferred choice of the medical, pharmaceutical and food processing industries.

It also maintains its stability in extreme environments, and its operative properties remain invariable over a wide temperature range, making it useful for a large number of industrial applications in the automotive, electronics and lighting sectors, amongst others.

Properties:

  • Excellent resistance to heat (dry air), at +200º C continuous and +220º C intermittent.
  • Remains flexible at low temperatures of -70ºC.
  • Resistant to ultra-violet light, ozone and weathering.
  • Good electrical insulation properties.
  • Silicones have comparatively low mechanical properties, tensile strength, elongation and tear strength, however they keep constant even at high temperatures but should not be used with high pressure steam.
  • Resistance to chemicals; moderate resistance to general chemical products; but acids, alkalis, esters and ketone should be avoided.

Application:

  • Food Industries
  • Industrial maintenance (high temperature)
  • Sealing

High elongation and tear resistant silicone

High elongation Silicone sheeting is specifically designed for industrial lamination processes requiring the use of large-sized protective membranes and high temperature resistance, and it is indispensable in the wooden panel lamination and photovoltaic panel industries.

Viton Rubbber Sheets

Viton® sheeting, is highly appreciated for the most demanding industrial applications as it has the highest resistance to hydrocarbons, acids, alkalis and even oxidants, and its mechanical properties remain intact at temperatures of up to 250ºC.

Different types of optimised Viton® sheeting exist according to the final use required, and there is a demand for it in heavy industries such as oil and petroleum refineries, steel works and chemical plants, and also in industries with special requirements such as the food industry.

Properties:

  • Viton is serviceable in continuous heat of up to 250º C and intermittent heat of up to 300º C.
  • Satisfactory resistance to low temperatures of typically -20º C and – 40º C by use of special grades.
  • Viton exhibits good flame resistance and are usually self extinguishing upon removal of flame source
  • Viton has excellent resistance to oxygen, ozone and natural weathering.
  • Viton compounds have outstanding resistance to compression, especially at elevated temperatures.
  • Resistance to chemicals; amongst all synthetic rubbers Viton’s are the most resistant to many of the solvents and chemicals, giving long service where other materials do not.
  • Excellent resistance against hydrocarbons, aliphatics, aromatic and chlorinated chemicals.
  • Good resistance to acids and alkali’s including oxidants. Poor performance against ethers, ketones, and bases.

Application:

  • Food Industries
  • Industrial maintenance (oils)
  • Industrial maintenance (high temperature)
  • Sealing

Nitrile Rubber Sheets

NBR nitrile rubber sheeting is specially formulated to prevent oil attack, meaning its mechanical properties remain intact even in direct contact with oils and grease.

Nitrile rubber sheeting specifically created to withstand contact with industrial oils, hydrocarbons, kerosene and high temperatures. Our nitrile rubber sheeting is mainly used in the manufacture of seals and other elements for industrial environments, in food grades for the food processing and health industries, and in special applications for transformer oil or dielectric oils for electrical installations and equipment.

Properties:

  • Good general resistance to oils.
  • Good mechanical properties especially tensile strength, flexibility, compression set and impermeability to gases.
  • Moderate ageing properties.
  • Temperature range: -30º C to +120º C, with the possibility of reaching -40ºC.
  • Good adhesion to metal.
  • Moderate resistance to low temperature.
  • Resistance to Chemicals; good resistance to inorganic chemical products except antioxidant agents and chlorine, and has satisfactory resistance to general hydrocarbons. Being a polar rubber means it is not recommended for use with polar liquids like ketones, ethers and amines. Limited resistance to aromatic hydrocarbons.

Application:

  • Industrial maintenance
  • Electrical transformers
  • Food Industries
  • Sealing
