Our Materials

Neoprene

Neoprene, commonly known as chloroprene is a solid rubber material with good resistance to oils, chemicals, UV and Ozone. Available in a range of shore hardnesses and thicknesses in sheet format. Some common products produced using Neoprene rubber are safety gloves, laptop covers/sleeves and sports/medical equipment.

Neoprene sponge is a closed cell synthetic rubber with similar properties to EPDM and Natural sheeting in terms of its resilience and resistance to abrasion. Neoprene sponges have a good resistance to oils, whereas resistance to petrol and other hydrocarbons is moderate

EPDM

EPDM rubber features excellent elasticity, resistance to UV rays, ozone and general weathering, as well as an excellent resistance to extreme temperatures. In addition to great weathering properties, EPDM also exhibits good resistance to water-based chemicals and vegetable-based hydraulic oils.

As a result of its useful properties and longevity, EPDM rubber is widely used in a range of applications and industrial sectors including, the Automotive, Lighting, Heating and Roofing sectors.

Silicone

One of the major benefits of silicone is that it maintains a high level of flexibility and low compression set even when subjected to extreme low and high temperatures. It also exhibits fantastic resistance to UV and ozone as well as being highly resistant towards water, acids, bases, chemicals, oils and fungus.

Due to its many advantageous properties, silicone rubber is a mainstay in a wide range of industrial sectors, including aerospace, automotive, electronics, medical and even food and drink production.

Nitrile

Nitrile rubber is a synthetic rubber co-polymer of acrylonitrile and butadiene. Also known as Buna-N or NBR, Nitrile rubber is resistant to aliphatic hydrocarbons, oils and fuels; and has a temperature range of -20˚C to + 100˚C.  It is similar to commercial and natural rubber, as it can be attacked by UV/Ozone. Nitrile rubber gaskets are popularly used in the aeronautical, petrochemical and automotive industries.

CB Frost

Our aim is to work to form long lasting, mutually beneficial relationships with both our supply chain and customer base. It is this dedication to developing partnerships that maintains our consistent supply base and our reputation for excellent customer service, and ensures customers come back time and time again.

Our Materials Continued

Polyurethane

An open cell lightweight, soft foam predominantly used in the furniture industry. PU foams, as they are commonly known, have been adapted in applications requiring cushioning, gap/dust sealing and anti-vibration/noise reduction.

Polyethylene

Polyethylene foam is a closed cell, cross-linked foam material that is frequently used for packaging purposes, as well as vibration dampening and for a range of sealing applications. Polyethylene foam gaskets are particularly effective as a dust and moisture seal.

PVC

PVC sponge gaskets are manufactured from Polyvinyl Chloride low density closed cell sponge and is available in two forms; slow or fast recovery. Useful properties of PVC sponge gaskets include a high resistance to ozone and solvents; it also works well for acoustics and sound insulation.

Cork

Cork can be supplied in a range of different grades, for example, Neoprene bonded or Nitrile bonded Cork. Cork has excellent oil and anti-vibration properties and is a highly effective material for sealing applications like fuel and oil pumps, electrical transformers and switchgear. It can also be used as flooring expansion jointing strips or gaskets.
