Solid Neoprene Insertion Rubber
Solid Neoprene Insertion Rubber
Advanced Seals & Gaskets Ltd supply and convert many types of solid rubber materials, one of which includes neoprene insertion rubber. Solid neoprene insertion rubber (CR) is manufactured in roll form usually at 1.4meters wide x 10meters long and in thicknesses starting at 1.5mm, which are stocked by ASG ready for despatch or to be converted into other products such as sheets, washers, gaskets, strips or pads.
As our products are manufactured on-site our customers have the benefit of ordering bespoke parts made to order, supplied in a range of adhesive-backed or foil finishes. Solid neoprene insertion rubber offers resistance to most oils, greases, water, ozone and moderate chemicals/acids.
What is Solid Neoprene Insertion Rubber?
Neoprene Insertion Rubber (or polychloroprene / CR) is a synthetic rubber, black in colour manufactured to the same specification as neoprene rubber but is produced with a mesh/fabric reinforcement layer running through the centre referred to as the ‘insertion’.
The reinforcement gives this economy grade material, an even higher tensile strength and wear resistance, whilst still maintaining good chemical stability and maintains its natural flexibility over a wide range of temperatures, it is highly durable as the material holds a high tolerance to extreme weathers and conditions, with good resistance to oil, chemicals and ozone.

Why use Solid Neoprene Insertion Rubber?
Solid Neoprene Insertion Rubber is manufactured with a mesh/fabric reinforcement layer running through the centre, increasing the durability of the material. This 'insertion' or reinforcement also prevents the material from stretching and increases its wear and tear resistance when used for physically demanding applications.
Neoprene insertion rubber has good resistance to chemicals, UV, ozone/weathering and moderate resistance to oils (animal/vegetable) and inorganic salts. It has a wide working temperature range of-20°C to +110℃ and is a strong material with excellent abrasion properties.
Neoprene insertion rubber can be converted into a range of products such as sleeves, tubes, gaskets and washers for use in countless applications including electrical insulations, engineering applications, tank seals, window seal and cable protection, to name a few.
Advantages of Neoprene Insertion Rubber
Neoprene Insertion rubber is popular amongst a range of industries due to the number of excellent properties. Neoprene Insertion rubber is used where a more durable, strong, abrasive material is required in an environment where exposure or sealing against extreme weather, water, salts, oil grease, UV/Ozone and gases is necessary.
This material maintains its flexibility across a wide temperature range and keeps its chemical resistance properties even in very hot or cold environments. Neoprene insertion rubber can be supplied in full rolls and sheets, or easily converted into bespoke gaskets, pads, strips or washers which can be used for a broad range of physically demanding applications from boating, marine sealing and insulation - through to being cut into flange gaskets, belts and sleeves.
Benefits of Neoprene Insertion Rubber
- Popular for internal / external applications
- Increased durability and tensile strength compared to standard neoprene
- Impermeable to water and dust
- Moderate resistance to oil, chemical greases and fats.
- excellent resistance to ozone, weathering and ageing
- Can be converted into a range of products
Grades of Insertion Rubber Available
NBR/SBR insertion (Nitrile) is manufactured using nitrile rubber and SBR compounds to create a material suitable for general purpose gasketing. This commercial-grade rubber offers resistance to fuels, petroleum, oils and many solvents making it suitable for use within a variety of industrial applications.
EPDM/SBR insertion rubber is another hybrid made up of 2 different compounds. This particular grade of material offers good resistance to weathering and Ozone deterioration and provides properties such as high tensile strength and tear resistance. Commercial grade EPDM rubber is typically used for applications such as pipe seals, weather strips and dust seals.
SBR Insertion rubber (Styrene-butadiene rubber) is a cost-effective, commercial-grade, general-purpose rubber with good abrasion resistance, tensile strength and a low compression set. SBR rubber is not suitable for applications involving chemicals, ozone, very strong acids, grease, fat oils and hydrocarbons
