Types of Rubber

To assist you in making an informed decision about the type of rubber that you are looking for, Specialised Moulding, your specialist rubber product manufacturers, has provided a list of some of the common types of rubber that are available:

Natural rubber is the foundation for all and is created using the latex sap from the Hevea Brasiliensis tree. Used for hoses, tubing, seals, and alike, it has a high tensile strength with the ability to withstand fatigue from active wear and tear.

Styrene-butadiene rubber is a synthetic rubber that is ideal for use in the production of tyres and in the automotive industry. It has impeccable impact strength, is abrasion resistant, and too has a high tensile strength.

Butyl is a synthetic rubber that is outstanding in controlling the permeability of moisture and gas within a particular application. It is highly heat, corrosion, and chemical resistant, making it ideal for the production of sealants, o-rings, and tank liners.

Nitrile is a widely used synthetic rubber that finds perfect application for use with a variety of petroleum-based fuels, oils, greases, and hydraulic fluids. Its properties make it highly versatile, including its impressive tensile strength and abrasion resistance.

Silicone is a synthetic rubber that can be used effectively in static applications. As a sealant and lubricant, it is suitable for applications involving petroleum fluid, water, and steam.

Other types of rubber that are commonly used in industry include NeopreneĀ®, Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer, VitonĀ®, Polyurethane, and Hydrogenated Nitrile, each with their own beneficial characteristics and properties.
