Full Range of Rubber Materials Available
We utilize a wide range of rubber materials to die cut washers and gaskets, each with its own characteristics and suitability for different applications. Here are some common types of rubber materials used:
Natural Rubber (NR)
Natural rubber is derived from the sap of the rubber tree. It possesses excellent elasticity, resilience, and low compression set, making it suitable for a wide range of applications. Natural rubber is resistant to water and most organic solvents but may be affected by oils, fuels, and ozone.
Styrene-Butadiene Rubber (SBR)
SBR is a synthetic rubber that exhibits good abrasion resistance, durability, and low-temperature flexibility. It has better resistance to chemicals and heat aging compared to natural rubber. SBR is commonly used in applications where resistance to water, alcohols, and mild acids is required.
Nitrile Rubber (NBR)
Nitrile rubber is a synthetic rubber with excellent oil and fuel resistance, making it widely used in automotive and industrial applications. It also exhibits good resistance to chemicals, water, and abrasion. NBR is particularly suitable for applications requiring sealing against petroleum-based fluids.
Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer (EPDM)
EPDM rubber is a synthetic elastomer known for its excellent weather resistance, ozone resistance, and aging resistance. It is resistant to water, steam, alkalis, and polar solvents but may not perform well with oils and hydrocarbon-based fluids. EPDM is commonly used in outdoor applications and in industries such as automotive, construction, and HVAC.
Silicone rubber is a synthetic elastomer with exceptional temperature resistance, ranging from extremely high to extremely low temperatures. It exhibits excellent flexibility, electrical insulation properties, and resistance to UV radiation. Silicone rubber has good compatibility with various chemicals but may not be suitable for applications involving petroleum-based fluids.
Fluoroelastomers, commonly known by the trade name Viton®, are synthetic rubbers with outstanding resistance to chemicals, fuels, oils, and high temperatures. They exhibit excellent sealing properties and are often used in demanding applications such as aerospace, automotive, and chemical processing industries.
Neoprene is a synthetic rubber that offers excellent resistance to weathering, ozone, oil, and chemicals. It has good physical properties, including flexibility, durability, and resistance to abrasion. Neoprene also exhibits good flame resistance and maintains its stability across a wide temperature range.
Butyl rubber is a synthetic elastomer known for its exceptional impermeability to gases, including air and moisture. It possesses excellent airtight and watertight properties, making it ideal for applications where sealing against gases or liquids is critical. Butyl rubber also exhibits good resistance to weathering, ozone, and aging.
