Food Quality Neoprene Washers
Working with suppliers and manufacturers from across the world, Advanced Seals & Gaskets Ltd are able to offer washers cut from a diverse range of neoprene materials in both rubber and sponge types, one of which is a Food Quality Neoprene Rubber. 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 washers can be cut.
All our washers are manufactured in-house using a combination of a skilled workforce and high-spec machinery, using either our oscillating knife or one of our many presses, depending upon size, thickness and quantity required.
Our range of machinery means we can manufacture food quality nitrile rubber washers to match your specified dimensions in any quantity quickly and efficiently, which in return passes on a quality product and a cost-saving.
Food quality neoprene washers are produced using either samples, drawings or dimensions provided by customers, which would detail the Outer Diameter (OD), Internal Diameter (ID) and the Thickness, manufactured in a plain or self-adhesive or foil-faced finish, as singular cut parts or kiss cut on a roll.
What are Food Quality Solid Neoprene Rubber Washers?
A ‘washer’ is a flat piece of material that is placed between two surfaces or between joints in order to reduce friction and prevent unsteadiness, creating a level surface for nuts, bolts and other fixings to rest on, improving the fit for fixings and can be used as a water or airtight seal.
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.

Why use Food Quality Solid Neoprene Rubber Washers?
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 washers are safe for use in food, drink and pharmaceutical applications, where their 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.
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 Washers
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 washers are popular for use within the food, drink and pharmaceutical industries as their white colour allows for dirt or foreign object detection, they’re odourless therefore protecting products from contamination and offers resistance to animal and vegetable fats, oils and greases.
Applications in which food quality neoprene rubber washers are often utilised include food, beverage and pharmaceutical processing and packaging, sealing gaskets, 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.
