Rubber

RUBBER is a very unique material. Its main characteristic is elastic recoil, i.e. elasticity. You can stretch a rubber band until it reaches a length much greater than its original one without breaking it; then, when you let it go, it will immediately return to its original shape and length. In the same way, you can compress, bend or twist it, and it will return to its original shape each time once the stress is removed.

Rubber sheets

Rubber sheets are widely used in the industrial sector both for the production of seals and supports and for coatings to provide protection from chemical agents and abrasion. They can be supplied in rolls or plates, depending on the thickness; custom cuts are performed upon request. The finishing of the plates is normally smooth; upon request, one or both of the surfaces can be supplied with a cloth impression. All of the plates can be produced with one or more textile inserts.

Textile rubber sheets

Suitable for current uses without specific characteristics of resistance to heat, chemical agents or weather. Insertion of one or more textiles based on the thicknesses. Surface textile impression upon request. OIL-RESISTANT RUBBER SHEETS Nitrile rubber base, suitable for oils and mineral and animal fats, fuels (with maximum % of aromatic substances based on its quality) and liquefied gases at room temperature.

Oil-resistant rubber sheets

General characteristics Resistance to heat: up to a maximum of 80/90°C. Natural rubber can soften (after temporarily hardening) as a result of prolonged exposure to high temperatures; this phenomenon is due to the decomposition of the material. Resistance to low temperatures: down to ca. -55°C. Electrical characteristics: well-formulated compounds have an appreciated insulating power. Gas permeability: high and therefore not suitable for this purpose.

SBR rubber

General characteristics Only using reinforcing fillers, SBR vulcanizates have the same mechanical characteristics as natural rubber; however, they have a better resistance to abrasion, high temperatures and aging, but a lower elasticity and flexibility at low temperatures.

EPDM rubber (ethylene propylene diene monomer)

General characteristics The characteristics of the vulcanizate depend primarily on the type of rubber used, even if they are substantially very similar. In general, EPDM vulcanizates have a good resistance to heat, aging, and chemical agents, good elasticity, good resistance to low temperatures and good insulating power.

NBR rubber

General characteristics The characteristics of NBR vulcanizates depend primarily on the acrylonitrile content of the nitrile rubber used and on the type and quantity of plasticizer. In general, however, it can be said that NBR vulcanizates have a good resistance to gasoline, oils and mineral greases, but are poorly resistant to aging. The resistance level of natural rubber can be achieved through the addition of reinforcing fillers.

CR RUBBER (chloroprenic)

General characteristics Articles produced with chloroprene rubber are generally highly inflammable, have a good resistance to ozone, weather, chemical agents and aging, medium resistance to oils, good mechanical characteristics and a good elasticity, even at very low temperatures.

FPM RUBBER (Viton®, Fluorel®,Tecnoflon®) or fluorinated rubbers

General characteristics Fluorinated elastomers are non-flammable and have a good resistance to high temperatures, ozone, oxygen, mineral oils, synthetic hydraulic fluids, fuels, aromatic compounds, many solvents and organic chemical agents. If the compounds are correctly formulated, they are resistant to water, steam, and a series of acids. The HIGH price and elasticity at low temperatures, which is not always satisfactory, are the disadvantages of this type of rubber.
