Synthetic rubber Sheet is any type of man-made elastomer that is mainly derived from petroleum. Synthetic rubber Sheets are used in many different applications worldwide, with the most common uses being in the industrial and automotive sectors. There are many different types of synthetic rubber Sheets that are available on the market. Each elastomer has its own unique traits that make them unique, and Rubber-Cal makes it a point to stock a variety of synthetic elastomers that have the largest market demand. Unlike organic rubber products, synthetic rubber sheet does not have a carbon-to-carbon backbone that can leave it susceptible to ozone, UV, heat and other ageing factors. Synthetic rubber sheet also generally comes with good levels of chemical and temperature resistance, with specific degrees varying according to the type of elastomer.
Each synthetic rubber sheet offers a unique characteristic and has been developed by industry for specific types of use. For example, silicones, as well as other synthetic rubber sheet, excel in temperature extremes, being able to operate normally from a range of -100°C to +300°C. Synthetic rubber sheet offers superior properties such as elongation, tear strength, compression set, fire resistance and, in some cases, tensile strength that are superior to that of natural rubber products.
