Materials - Rubber

Rubber is available in a variety of different compounds, all which have varying properties to provide an ideal solution for a given application. Rubber such as EPDM and Neoprene (CR) are a general purpose rubber due to their resistances to weathering and heat, making them suitable for common gaskets, seals, washers or any other customised products. Rubber such as Nitrile (NBR) has a high resistance against solvents, oils and hydrocarbons, and thus is used in applications where it would be susceptible to these elements, such as pneumatic seals, oil seal gaskets and low pressure hydraulic seals. Silicone has a much higher tolerance to heat and is excellent in the resistance to hot air, whilst specialised rubbers like Viton and Hypalon have specific properties which resist a wide range of acids, alkalis and salts. Reinforced rubber compounds known as insertion rubber is also available where the rubber is lined with either nylon or cotton reinforcing to vastly improve tear strength and longevity.

In addition to our vast range of compounds, PRP also stocks FDA (Food and Drug Administration) white EPDM, Nitrile and Natural rubber which comply with FDA regulations 21 CRF 177.2600, for use in food and medical industries. We also stock a range of potable EPDM rubber sizes which comply with AS/NZS 4020:2005 and AS 1646.2:2000 for use in pipelines or other drinking water applications.

PRP has rubber ranging from 0.8mm thick up to 25mm thick, with rolls sizes generally 1200mm or 1500mm wide. Other sizes and harnesses (duro) can be provided upon request. Please click below for technical data sheets on our common rubber varieties, or contact us for more information.
