Natural Gum Rubber
Premlene Natural Gum Rubber boasts exceptional strength and has consistently upheld its standing as the favored material across numerous engineering applications. With an extended fatigue life and remarkable strength, it demonstrates excellent resilience even in the absence of reinforcing fillers. This substance exhibits unparalleled resistance to abrasion and tearing. Its operational range extends up to approximately 150°F, and on occasion, even higher. Notably, it retains its flexibility even in frigid environments, down to -40°F. However, it’s important to note that unlike EPDM, Pure Gum Rubber is not formulated for outdoor or oil-resistant applications. Instead it is often used for gaskets and sand/shot blast curtains due to its high abrasion resistance and resilience.
