Neoprene Insertion Rubber

Neoprene Insertion Rubber

ASG offer a range of sponge, foam, plastic, cork and rubber materials, stocking many of them in roll form ready for despatch or conversion.

One type of solid rubber being Neoprene Insertion Rubber, which is manufactured in roll form usually at 1.4meters wide x 10meters long and in thicknesses starting at 1.5mm, which can be supplied in full, cut into sheets or converted into various other products including gaskets, washers, pads and strips, supplied with a plain or self-adhesive finish using our in-house laminating service and conversion facilities which consists of bandsaws, presses, kiss cut machines, slitters, log cutters and an oscillating knife.

Solid neoprene rubber is often taken in roll form as they give the customer and end users the flexibility to cover large surface areas and to be able to cut their parts out as and when they are required.

    Key Characteristics of Solid Neoprene Insertion Rubber:

    • Colour: black
    • Shore Hardness: 70°C
    • Temperature: -20°C up to +110°C
    • Resistances: suitable for most oils, greases, water, ozone, moderate chemicals and acids.
    • Applications: Gaskets, pipe flanges, chute liner, sleeves, container seals

    What Are Solid Neoprene Insertion Rubber Rolls?

    Neoprene Insertion Rubber (or polychloroprene / CR) rolls, are a synthetic rubber, black in colour manufactured to the same specification as standard neoprene rubber but is produced with a mesh/fabric reinforcement layer running through the centre referred to as the ‘insertion’.

    The reinforcement gives these rolls of economy grade material, an even higher tensile strength and wear resistance, whilst still maintaining good chemical stability and maintains its natural flexibility over a wide range of temperatures, it is highly durable as the material holds a high tolerance to extreme weathers and conditions, with good resistance to oil, chemicals and ozone.

    Why Use Solid Neoprene Insertion Rubber Rolls?

    Rolls of Neoprene Insertion Rubber are manufactured using the same formulation and compound as standard neoprene rubber, but with a mesh/fabric reinforcement layer running through the centre, increasing the durability of the material. This 'insertion' or reinforcement also prevents the material from stretching and increases its wear and tear resistance when used for physically demanding applications and during conversion.

    Neoprene insertion rubber has good resistance to chemicals, UV, ozone/weathering and moderate resistance to oils (animal/vegetable) and inorganic salts. It has a wide working temperature range of-20°C to +110℃ and is a strong material with excellent abrasion properties.

    Neoprene insertion rubber can be converted into a range of products such as sleeves, tubes, gaskets and washers for use in countless applications including electrical insulations, engineering applications, tank seals, window seal and cable protection, to name a few.

    Benefits Of Neoprene Insertion Rubber

    • Popular for internal / external applications
    • Increased durability and tensile strength compared to standard neoprene
    • Impermeable to water and dust
    • Moderate resistance to oil, chemical greases and fats.
    • Excellent resistance to ozone, weathering and ageing
    • Can be converted into a range of products

    Grades Of Insertion Rubber Available

    NBR/SBR insertion (Nitrile) is manufactured using nitrile rubber and SBR compounds to create a material suitable for general purpose gasketing. This commercial grade rubber offers resistance to fuels, petroleum, oils and many solvents making it suitable for use within a variety of industrial applications.

    EPDM/SBR insertion rubber is another hybrid made up of 2 different compounds. This particular grade of material offers good resistance to weathering and Ozone deterioration and provides properties such as a high tensile strength and tear resistance. Commercial grade EPDM rubber is typically used for applications such as pipe seals, weather strips and dust seals.

    SBR Insertion rubber (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

    Advantages Of Neoprene Insertion Rubber Rolls

    Rolls of Neoprene insertion rubber and components cut from them are popular amongst a range of industries due the number of excellent properties.

    Neoprene insertion rubber rolls are used where a more durable, strong, abrasive material is required in an environment where exposure or sealing against extreme weather, water , salts, oil grease, UV/Ozone and gases is necessary.

    This material maintains its flexibility across a wide temperature range and keeps its chemical resistance properties even in very hot or cold environments. Neoprene insertion rubber can be supplied in full rolls and sheets, or easily converted into bespoke gaskets, pads, strips or washers which can be used for a broad range of physically demanding applications from boating, marine sealing and insulation - through to being cut into flange gaskets, belts and sleeves. Rolls are often preferred for cutting components as they generally give a better yield in comparison to using sheets.
