Natural Rubber Benefits & Advantages

Broad Chemical Compatibility

Natural rubber has been used as a versatile material in engineering for many years. It combines high tensile and tear strength with an outstanding resistance to fatigue.

To achieve the properties required for a given products, raw natural rubber can be compounded.

  • Adjustable hardness from very soft to very hard
  • Appearance and color ranges from translucent (soft) to black (hard)
  • Can be compounded to meet nearly any mechanical requirement
  • Ability to be electrically insulating or fully conductive
  • Protection, insulation and sealing properties
  • Absorb vibration and silence noise
  • Available in any surface roughness and shape

Properties Affected by Compounds

  • Hardness
  • Modulus
  • High Resilience
  • High Damping
  • Low Compression Set
  • Low Creep/Relaxation
  • Cross Link Density
