Cellular Rubber is a porous, closed cell grade of rubber which is manufactured in an expansion process based on natural or synthetic rubber. Cellular Rubber can be applied in virtually any situation for sealing, insulating and for shock-absorbing applications. It is used successfully and cost effectively in many areas of industry.
Natural Rubber (NR), in its pure form, is used in countless everyday products. Hardly any other material offers values as high as natural rubber for tensile strength, tearing strength, elasticity and low-temperature flexibility.
EPDM, a synthetic rubber, is the elastomer all-rounder. It stands out for its high resistance to external influences such as ozone, light and water, so it is particularly appropriate for outdoor use. It also has good acid and alkaline resistance and high tensile strength. EPDM products can be used across a wide range of temperatures. They are still very flexible in cold conditions and they can withstand a maximum temperature of up to 140°C while under constant stress.
Chloroprene Rubber (CR) is a synthetic rubber with impressive fire-resistant behaviour. CR materials are self-extinguishing, so they are used in areas with high fire risk. CR is also highly resistant to brittleness, the elements and saltwater. Also known as Neoprene, CR rubber is used for diving suits and heat-insulating sports clothing.
Nitrile rubber (NBR) is a synthetic rubber with very high resistance to oil, fuels and a wide range of chemicals. Compared to other elastomers, NBR has high abrasion resistance even at high temperatures, and it is very hard-wearing.
EPDM-PE Blend This high-quality blend of cellular rubber and polyethylene combines all the positive properties of rubber and PE. It has the high elasticity and fine-celled, velvety surface of a pure EPDM and the high temperature resistance of a pure polyethylene.
