Natural rubber is a popular material for manufacturers to use because of its superior qualities. Some benefits of natural rubber include a high stretch ratio, great resilience and a waterproof surface.
Most natural rubber is obtained by tapping into the latex of the para rubber tree or similar trees. After being harvested, this latex is refined and prepared for commercial use. The properties of rubber extracted from a para tree were first discovered in South America by a Frenchman, and this discovery gradually led to the use of rubber for products across Europe.
Today, natural rubber is found being used across many different industries in a wide range of products around the world. Here at Premier Seals Manufacturing, we primarily use natural rubber to manufacture natural rubber gaskets and washers.
(NR….Polyisoprene) General Temperature Range -20/+185 F
Generally resistant to:
Water, air and average concentration acids. Bases, alcohols, salts, ketones, and has the best abrasion resistance.
Generally affected or attacked by:
Strong acids, ozone, bases, oils, solvents, and most hydrocarbons.
This material is typically collected in the form of latex from specific trees. Once the milky substance is refined, the rubber is ready for commercial use. Natural rubber has a large stretch ratio and resilience which can be useful when needed. This extremely waterproof material is used for many products you may use on a daily bases such as the shoes you wear.
Natural Rubber, also known as “GUM” rubber has good tensile strength and tear resistance.
Because of its elasticity and resilience, natural rubber is used in many different applications. Here at Premier Seals Manufacturing, we create natural rubber gaskets and natural rubber washers. Rubber makes a great seal because it is resistant to water and many other fluids. Natural rubber gaskets, for instance, do an excellent job of sealing up a small space between two components and preventing any leaks during operation. In combustion engines, natural rubber gaskets can help to maintain the compression that is essential to create power. Other applications include:
