Natural Rubber Sheet are used in applications requiring elasticity and flexibility combined with resistance to abrasion, tearing and low temperatures. It is a tough, non-marking, organic material that resists alkalis, salts, mild acids and other types of chemicals. It is a common tire, gasket and mounting material.
Natural rubber sheeting has excellent tear strength and is used commonly for abrasion resistant applications such as chute linings and shot-blast cabinets. Natural rubber is a superior compound for all wear resistant uses however does not have great weathering properties.
Natural Rubber is a good gasket material due to excellent physical properties. Natural rubber has superior resilience, tensile, elongation and abrasion resistance, good low temperature flexibility and compression set and excellent adhesion to fabric and metals.
