BS2752 Solid Rubber Strip
Advanced Seals & Gaskets Ltd offer an extensive range of high-quality solid rubber strips, all manufactured using some of the latest states of the art machinery. BS2752 solid rubber strips are one of 1000’s products we are able to produce in-house, which are made to order, manufactured using one of our many machines including bandsaws, strippers, log cutters and even presses depending on the size and quantity required.
For every small strip in high volume runs, a kiss-cut option may also be available for a quicker turnaround and use. BS2752 strips can be manufactured in thicknesses starting at just 1mm, in widths anywhere up to 1.4 meters and in any length up to 10 meters long.
On-site production allows us to closely oversee the whole process to ensure that we constantly produce high quality, competitively priced strips, supplied in a choice of finishes including foils, self-adhesives or laminated with other materials.
What are BS2752 Rubber Strips?
BS2752 is a Neoprene (or polychloroprene/CR) synthetic material, which is manufactured to a higher specification to standard grades of neoprene and complying with the British Standard 2752 and offering higher tensile strength and resistance to temperature.
BS2752 neoprene rubber is available in a range of hardnesses from 40°- 80° shore (the shore hardness is measured using a shore durometer which indicates the level of resistance to indentation, the higher number on the scale indicate a greater resistance - harder the material/lower number indicate less resistance- softer the material).
BS2752 strips are pieces of the material often cut to a specific width, in pre-cut lengths or continuous coils as requested by our customers, used in a similar way to a gasket placed between two surfaces to create a seal, provide cushioning, anti-vibration or insulation.

Why use BS2752 Rubber Strips?
Neoprene BS2752 rubber strips hold a range of desirable properties which means they can be used within countless applications, including where there may be exposure to the ozone, sea water, mineral oils, fuel, grease and dilute acids or alkalis.
The material has a wide working temperature range of -30°C to +110℃ and is a strong material with excellent abrasion, tensile strength and elongation at break properties. BS2752 can be manufactured or converted into a range of strips and tapes for use in countless applications including electrical insulations, engineering applications, window seals, anti-vibration and cable protection, to name a few.
Advantages of Using BS2752 Rubber Strips
Neoprene BS2752 rubber strips are very popular amongst a range of industries due to the number of excellent properties and the range of hardnesses available.
BS2752 rubber is used where the properties of standard neoprene are required, but with higher mechanical strength and temperature resistance. BS2752 is a durable, strong, abrasive material, which can be used in environments where exposure or sealing against extreme weather, water, salts, oil grease, UV/Ozone and gases is necessary.
BS2752 rubber is easy to convert into strips which can be used for a broad range of applications from extreme aerospace and defence industries through to boating or marine sealing and insulation.
Benefits of Using BS2752 Rubber
- Popular for internal and external applications
- Variety of hardnesses available
- Impermeable to water and dust
- Moderate resistance to oil, chemical greases and fats.
- excellent resistance to ozone, weathering and ageing
- improved tensile strength and resistance to temperature compared to standard grades
Different Grades Available:
Advanced Seals & Gaskets Ltd work with a multitude of manufacturers, allowing us to offer customers a wider choice of neoprene material grades from which strips can be cut:
Standard Neoprene (CR) is one of our most popular solid rubber materials, with various thicknesses held in stock. Neoprene is suitable for use where there is exposure to grease, oil, acids, ozone and even seawater.
Flame retardant neoprene rubber can handle continuous temperatures of -30°C to +100°C, this material meets the test requirements of the flammability standard UL94-V0 and is in line with ISO 340. Flame retardant neoprene rubber sheets are also tested in accordance with anti-static BS 490.
Food Quality (FDA) neoprene is white in colour and conforms to EC and FDA regulations for use within the food processing and pharmaceutical industries. Properties including resistance to fats, greases and vegetable oils, combined with higher tensile strength and wider working temperature range of -30°C up to +130°C make it a popular material to use.
