Due to its ease of use in various applications, rubber sheeting is preferred across multiple industrial sectors. Rubber sheets are also known for their efficiency as an insulator. At Allied Packing and Rubber, we provide the best rubber sheeting Houston Texas has to offer.
What Rubber Sheeting?
Making it ideal for applications where protection or sealing is needed, rubber sheeting is available in many different durometers. A numerical value indicating the resistance to indentation is given to each piece of rubber sheeting.
Many industries opt for rubber sheeting in applications because it can be a very cost-effective material.
Rubber Sheeting Options
Because it is available in multiple styles and specifications, rubber sheeting is a popular option among various industries. Rubber sheeting can be cut to suit any specific application.
There are significant differences in their production that divide rubber sheets into the following types:
Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer (EPDM) Rubber Sheets
Used in applications dealing with automotive brake fluids, weak alkalis, and acids, EPDM is an elastomer that is the most effective rubber used outdoors, with high resistance to sunlight and ozone.
Neoprene Rubber Sheets
Neoprene rubber sheets are created from synthetic rubber by polymerizing 2-chlor-1, 3-butadiene. It is resistant to ozone, oxygen, freon, and ammonia, amongst many other fluids, and is commonly used for exposed environment applications.
A synthetic rubber sheet that performs well in hot and corrosive environments with a -20°F to 400°F temperature rating is Viton, high-performance fluoroelastomers. Viton sheets are resistant to aliphatic hydrocarbon fluids, mineral acids, lubricants, fuels, and oils. It also has excellent resistance to fungus and mold.
Silicone Rubber Sheets
Silicone is a synthetic rubber used to make rubber sheets. It can withstand 200°C and is chemically inert, making it superior in the food processing industry.
Buna-Nitrile Rubber Sheets
The standard in hydraulic and pneumatic sealing elastomers is Buna-Nitrile rubber sheets. It is the top choice of materials to use with petroleum-based hydraulic fluids because of its oil-resistant nature. Buna-N has good abrasion resistance, high tensile strength, and resistance to compression.
