Serving customers for almost 40 years since our inception, our case studies present examples of how we have solved problems for clients across many industries during this time.
How is rubber sheeting made?
Rubber sheeting is predominantly manufactured via a mechanical process known as calendering. During this process, rubber compounds (such as nitrile, natural rubber, or fluoro-elastomer are milled or extruded to soften them, before being forced through cylindrical rolls which determine the width and thickness of the calendered sheeting.
Sheeting can be supplied as unvulcanised (uncured) for further forming by our customers or in order to impart optimum final characteristics vulcanised onsite. Depending on the customers’ requirements we can autoclave or rotocure the sheeting to offer a range of finishes. These processes allow us to produce rubber sheeting and textiles for a variety of different applications.
What are the features of reinforced rubber sheeting?
Reinforced rubber sheeting is used for many general-purpose as well as high-spec applications, including waterproof seals, gaskets, load bearings, insulation, inflatables, and throughout the food/beverage industry amongst others. It is particularly useful when materials that are resistant to creep or deformation are required, particularly on long-life products. We’re happy to discuss any upcoming projects before recommending the correct level of reinforced rubber sheeting.
