Choose the right rubber sheet for your applications
Issue Time:2019-12-17
Rubber sheet is a versatile product commonly used for weather stripping, construction materials and industrial applications.  Sheet rubber can be produced from natural rubber, synthetic rubber, reclaimed rubber or recycled rubber. While it’s common for companies to order whole rolls of rubber at a time, Qihang Rubber also has the capability to cut sheet rubber into custom shapes and sizes.

Preferred for its durability, flexibility, weather resistance, and high performance, sheet rubber is popular for creating gaskets, washers and spacers. But, not all rubber sheet is the same. Finding the right elastomer for your application is important to the life and durability of the part. Don’t wind up with an economy grade material when you need a specification grade material just because the price is lower! Choose the right formula for your applications. Some common compounds used for rubber sheet include EPDM, FKM , SBR, Neoprene, Nitrile and natural rubber, but can be created from other formulations.
