Hypalon Rubber Strips

Hypalon Strip

Rubber strips from Advanced Seals & Gaskets Ltd are converted using materials supplied from a host of worldwide manufacturers allowing us to offer a diverse range of solid rubber materials including specialist grades such as Hypalon rubber (used to manufacture our Hypalon Rubber Strips).

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 down into strips. ASG’s in-house conversion facilities house own state of the art machinery which include a number of presses, kiss cut machines, slitters, bandsaws, splitters, log cutters and coaters, enabling us to not only supply Hypalon as complete rolls, but also as bespoke cut strips or coils of materials in lengths of up to 10 meters and widths starting from around 4mm.

    What Are Hypalon Rubber Strips?

    Like most other solid rubber materials, Hypalon rubber is manufactured in roll form (continuous lengths of material) and in a range of standard thicknesses which can be cut down into strips.

    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. Hypalon rubber strips are often used in a similar way to gaskets placed between two surfaces to create a seal, provide cushioning, anti-vibration or insulation.

    Why Use Hypalon Rubber Strips?

    The 2 compounds used in the formulation of Hypalon rubber creates high quality rolls of material produced to offer a number of outstanding properties.

    Hypalon rubber strips offer 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 enables Hypalon to demonstrate 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.

    Popular Applications and Uses for Hypalon Rubber

    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 Solid Rubber Strips Available

    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 Strips of Hypalon Rubber

    When using strips of Hypalon rubber within your application, users benefit from 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 which can later be cut and converted into strips, however being a solid rubber it can also be moulded into bespoke profiled strips or even parts such as tubes.
