Hypalon Rubber Sheet

ASG stock, supply and convert sheets of materials manufactured by a host of worldwide manufacturers allowing us to offer a diverse range of solid rubber materials including specialist grades such as Hypalon rubber, which can be used to create products such as hypalon rubber sheets. As with most solid rubber materials Hypalon is manufactured in roll form at 1.4meters wide x 10meters long, starting at 1mm in thickness, which can be used to cut sheets at 1 meter or 2 meter lengths.

Advanced Seals & Gaskets facilities house own state of the art conversion machinery which include a number of presses, kiss cut machines, slitters, bandsaw, splitter, log cutters and coaters, enabling us to not only supply Hypalon as complete sheets, but also as bespoke usable finished products such as washers, gaskets, strips and pads often with the option of self-adhesive or foil facings.

    What Are Hypalon Rubber Sheet?

    Hypalon rubber is manufactured in roll form (continuous lengths of material) and in a range of standard thicknesses which can be cut down and supplied as sheets at 1.4 meters wide and in 1 or 2 meters in length.

    Hypalon rubber is a high quality synthetic material also referred to as chlorosulfonated polyethylene, produced by combining and reacting polyethylene with chlorine and sulfur dioxide, this reaction changes the thermoplastic polyethylene into a synthetic elastomer which can then be compounded and vulcanised to produce the finished material.

    Why Use Hypalon Rubber Sheet?

    The formulation of Hypalon consists of 2 compounds, creating high quality sheets of material produced to offer a number of outstanding properties.

    Hypalon rubber sheets have excellent resistance to ozone, weathering, acids, with an exceptional resistance to chemicals and oils and very high or low temperatures, an operating temperature range of -30℃ to +140℃ and a high tensile strength. By combining the two compounds in the material manufacturing process, Hyplon demonstrates the moisture resistance, a good dielectric strength and chemically inertness of standard polyethylene, with the oil and self extinguishing fire resistance properties produced with the addition of chlorine.

    Using sheets of material is often preferred for large surface covers, for cutting smaller quantities of washers, gaskets or smaller strips and are used where excessive amounts of material aren’t required.

    Popular Applications and Uses for Hypalon Rubber Sheet

    Hypalon rubber can be found used in many industries for specialised, industrial and household application some of which include:

    • Wire and cable jackets
    • Inflatable boats
    • Roofing
    • Seals and gaskets
    • Tubes and hoses
    • Tank liners
    • Shoe soles

    Different Grades of Hypalon Rubber Sheet

    Advanced Seals & Gaskets work with a wide network of material manufacturers and suppliers, giving our customers more choice when looking for sold rubber, our most popular grades of solid rubber roll 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.

    EPDM (Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer) another very popular solid rubber is great for use in outdoor applications. This material is resistant to water, UV, ozone, weather, abrasion, alkalines, ketones and diluted acids.

    Nitrile (NBR) rubber is a popular solid material for use within the automotive industry where there is contact with petroleum, oil and grease.

    SBR (Styrene-butadiene rubber) is a cost-effective, commercial-grade, general-purpose rubber with good abrasion resistance, tensile strength and low compression set. (SBR rubber is not suitable for applications involving chemicals, ozone, very strong acids, grease, fat oils and hydrocarbons).

    Silicone (SI) is an excellent electrical insulation material that can operate at high and low temperatures. Silicone rubber performs well when exposed to UV, weathering, ozone and moisture, and is available in a range of colours.

    Viton rubber materials are manufactured for more demanding applications where there are harsh chemicals and high temperatures present. Viton rubber offers resistance to fluids, oils, acids and petroleum-based liquids.

    Advantages Of Using Hypalon Rubber Sheet

    Customers often choose to take sheets of Hypalon rubber  for the conversion of parts as it saves on waste where an entire roll of material isn't needed.

    Using Hypalon rubber offers a number of excellent qualities which include its chemical inertness, resistance to ozone, weathering and oils, wide operating temperature range, good dielectric strength and self-extinguishing properties.

    Hypalon rubber is usually manufactured in continuous rolls, but can be cut and supplied as sheets , which can be further  converted in gaskets, washers or sealing strips, however being a solid rubber it can also be moulded into parts such as tubes and sleeves.
