The Benefits of Natural Rubber
Flexibility and Strength for Your Products
The primary benefit of natural rubber is that it has high tensile strength. This is the maximum that a material can be stretched and still withstand the stretching. A material like natural rubber with high tensile strength will not break or be weakened easily. Natural rubber is one of the most flexible types of rubbers and is resistant to water, some chemicals, cutting, tearing, and wear, making it ideal for many applications. However, if your application requires resistance to light, heat, or ozone, a synthetic rubber or material like neoprene may be a better option. We are happy to discuss whether natural or synthetic rubber is best for your specific needs.
