We’ve developed an Industrial Rubber Products Enquiry Guide which you can download.

 

Below are some examples of things to consider when deciding on the type of rubber to use. The more information you are able to supply regarding your particular circumstances, the quicker and more accurately we will be able to provide a solution.

Top 10 Considerations when choosing your industrial rubber solution

  1. Precise function of the article or material.
  2. Operating temperature; normal operating temperature or temperature range, and maximum and minimum temperatures likely to be encountered and for what periods. Indicate if different parts will be at different temperatures, e.g. the inside and outside of a hose conveying hot liquid.
  3. Exposure to light, radiation and gases; state if the rubber will be exposed to :-
    • Sun, or other strong light
    • High energy (atomic) radiation
    • Outdoor air
    • Atmospheres containing ozone, e.g. from corona discharge
    • Corrosive gases; e.g. chlorine
  4. Exposure to liquids; state if the rubber will be subjected continuously or intermittently to the action of any liquid, for instance:-
    • Water (fresh or sea) or rain
    • Anti-freeze solutions
    • Liquid fuels
    • Lubricating oils or greases
    • Hydraulic fluids
    • Refrigerants
    • Corrosive chemicals, such as acids, strong alkalis or hypochlorites, etc
  5. Abrasion and cutting: state if the rubber will be subjected to any rubbing, abrasive or cutting action and give details, including those of any materials producing abrasion.
  6. Electrical requirements: state any electrical requirements of the article, e.g. insulation resistance, dielectric strength (break-down strength), dissipation of static charges (anti-static or conductive rubber), low dielectric power loss.
  7. Contact Surfaces: state with what surfaces the rubber will be in contact and if staining is important.
  8. Flame resistance.
  9. Are samples available?
  10. What are their exact requirements and potential?

Information is also included within the enquiry guide regarding the variables to consider when deciding on your industrial rubber sheetings, mouldings, seals, diaphragms and die cut gaskets.
