Food Quality Neoprene Rubber Strip
Working with suppliers and manufacturers from across the world, Advanced Seals & Gaskets Ltd are able to offer strips cut using a diverse range of neoprene materials in both rubber and sponge types, one of which is a Food Quality Neoprene Rubber, sometimes referred to as gasket strip, sealing strip or isolation strip.
This material is manufactured in roll form at 1.4meters wide x 5 meters or 10meters long and in thicknesses starting at just 1mm, from which strips can be cut. Using state of the art machinery and following our customer samples or drawings, we can produce bespoke food quality solid natural rubber strips using our bandsaws, strippers, log cutters and even presses depending upon the size and quantity required.
In-house production allows us to closely oversee the whole production process to ensure that we consistently produce high quality, competitively priced strips. Our food quality neoprene rubber strips are cut from rolls or sheets, which are manufactured in a range of standard thicknesses starting at just 1mm, these can be supplied coated with self-adhesive backing or laminated to other materials, which can then be cut into strips in widths starting at 4mm wide and in a choice of 5 or 10 meter long continuous coils or pre-cut shorter lengths.
What are Food Quality Solid Neoprene Rubber Strips?
Food Quality Neoprene Rubber is a synthetic, white coloured, tasteless and odourless material that is used within the food, drink and pharmaceutical industries. The bright colour allows for easy visibility of dirt or materials that may contaminate foods or drinks during production or packaging and can be used in high-temperature applications and where there will be contact with greases and animal/vegetable fats.
Food Quality Solid Neoprene Rubber strips are cut from sheets or rolls to order, meaning we can supply them to meet your exact specifications in terms of lead time, size and finish. Food quality natural rubber strips can be used for noise or vibration control applications or as gaskets, placed between two surfaces to create a low-pressure seal preventing the leakage of dust, liquids or gas.

Why use Food Quality Solid Neoprene Rubber Strips?
Food quality solid neoprene rubber is a high-quality material formulated to conform to FDA standards (Food and Drug Administration).
By meeting these standards, we can ensure these strips of material are safe for use in food, drink and pharmaceutical applications, where its colour helps with the detection of dirt and foreign bodies whilst protecting the ingredients from taste and odour contamination.
Food quality neoprene rubber is water-resistant and therefore does not support mould growth, it also offers resistance to high temperatures, oil and many chemicals. Food Quality Neoprene Rubber strips can be taken for sealing, cushioning or anti-vibration applications where they are utilised in a similar way to a gasket.
Benefits of using Food Quality Solid Neoprene Rubber
- Suitable for food, drink and pharmaceutical applications
- Durable even at high temperatures
- Impermeable to water therefore will not allow for mould growth
- Resistant to greases and animal/vegetable fat
- Good mechanical strength
Advantages of using Food Quality Solid Neoprene Rubber Strips
Food quality neoprene (CR) rubber demonstrates the same chemical characteristics of a standard grade neoprene rubber, but due to the addition of different additives and compounds, it has higher tensile strength and temperature resistance.
Food quality neoprene rubber strips are popular for use within the food, drink and pharmaceutical industries as their white colour allows for dirt or foreign object detection, it is odourless therefore protecting products from contamination and offers resistance to animal and vegetable fats, oils and greases.
Applications in which food quality neoprene rubber seals are often utilised include food, beverage and pharmaceutical processing and packaging, sealing gaskets or oven seals and drink pumps, etc.
Different Grades of Solid Neoprene
As ASG works with a network of material manufacturers and suppliers, we are able to offer customers a choice of neoprene rubber types to choose from, some of the most popular include:
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. Available in shore hardnesses of 40° – 80° Shore.
Flame retardant neoprene rubber sheets 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.
Neoprene insertion rubber (CR) Solid Neoprene 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.
