Sheet Rubber Uses and Applications

The spectrum of sheet rubber uses and applications is far ranging. In general sheet rubber offers a good amount of resistance to substances like acids, alkali’s, oxidizing elements, weathering and ozone.  In addition rubber has capability to preserve it’s form in low temperature environments.

Given the wide variety of sheet rubber types, finding the most appropriate one for your needs is often a difficult task. Further to knowing the polymer type, you also must factor in specification elements such as, color, grade, hardness, elongation, tensile, and compression set. All of which will differ given the working environment you require the rubber to perform in.

Some of the most common industrial uses for sheet rubber include gaskets and seals. For instance, sheet rubber provides good resistance to chemicals and can perform well in fully or semi-submerged conditions. In addition, its elastic properties also make it ideal for use in shock absorbing/vibration dampening applications.

Here are some other popular uses of sheet rubber:

  • Anti-Vibration Padding
  • Automotive Bumpers
  • Automotive Interior Trim and Cording
  • Bumper/Rubber Padding
  • Conveyor Belting
  • Cushioning Pads
  • Flooring
  • Floor and Window Wiper Blades
  • Gaskets and Seals
  • O-Rings
  • Shock Absorbing
  • Snow Plow Deflector Blades
  • Surface/Shear Protection

Environment, performance specifications and product longevity all play a critical roll when selecting which sheet rubber polymer to use.
