The Benefits of Natural Rubber
Flexibility and Strength for Your Products
Benefits of Natural Rubber
• High tensile strength
• High resistance
• High abrasion properties
• High tear-resistance properties
• Good friction surface
• Excellent adhesion to metals
• Good resistance to organic acids and alcohols
• Moderate resistance to aldehydes
However, if your application requires resistance to light, heat, or ozone, a synthetic rubber or material like neoprene may be a better option. Natural rubber is not widely used in the sealing industry because of its poor compression set performance and its lack of resistance to a variety of fluids. It is also banned for most medical applications.
We are happy to discuss whether natural or synthetic rubber is best for your specific needs.
