Generally considered to be superior to synthetic rubbers, natural rubber sheeting provides excellent mechanical properties with very good abrasion resistance and superior elongation, tear and tensile strength.
Its high tear and tensile strength makes it the ideal choice for applications such as grit or shotblast rubber lined cabinets, lining construction chutes or as blade scrapers. Black natural rubber sheeting is one of the more commonly used natural rubber sheets because carbon-black is added as a filler to create an increased natural rubber hardness. The overall stronger material can be used for products such as commercial sheeting and tyres.
Natural rubber sheeting is available as a straight commercial product or with fabric insertion for extra strength - natural rubber sheets are also available in a food grade option. Some of our natural rubber sheeting is British Standard BS1337/3 compliant and is ideal for high performance applications when high tensile and abrasion resistance are crucial - commonly required by government bodies, the construction industry and railway and military organisations.
Suitable for a variety of applications, Coruba stocks natural rubber sheeting in various grades, colours and finishes. Please contact us for professional advice.
