Natural Rubber

The "original" rubber material

Working Temperature Range:

High: 220°F / 104°C Low: -60°F / -51°C

Natural rubber is the ideal choice for any product that requires high elasticity/tensile strength and abrasion/tear resistance.  Natural rubber also has good vibration dampening characteristics and low compression set values.  It is also relatively easy to bond to a wide range of substrates.

Advantages:

  • Excellent tear and abrasion resistance
  • Very low compression set values
  • Good vibration dampening characteristics

Disadvantages:
  • Poor ozone and UV resistance
  • Poor resistance to petroleum oil exposure
