Natural Rubber Washers

Here at Advanced Seals & Gaskets Ltd, we stock a wide variety of materials including solid natural rubber. As a leading supplier and converter of solid natural rubber, we perform all conversions on-site, ensuring complete quality control. Solid Natural Rubber is made using naturally occurring latex and is an excellent material for a variety of applications due to its strength, tear resistance, and shock absorption capabilities. Our solid natural rubber washers can be supplied plain or with self-adhesive backings.

Whether we manufacture as a one-off or in large quantities, we work closely with our customers throughout the manufacturing process to provide a completely bespoke service. Utilizing state-of-the-art machinery such as atoms, autos, kiss cutting presses or our CNC (oscillating knife), we ensure we produce washers in the most efficient way, to ensure high quality while keeping lead times down.

 Solid Natural Rubber is available from us in many other forms including:

    What is Solid Natural Rubber?

    Natural rubber is the result of solids suspended in a milky fluid, known as latex, formed in a living organism.  It is a strong, durable and waterproof material, available from us as standard in rolls at, 1.4 metres wide x 10 metres long with thickness starting at 0.5mm.

    Solid natural rubber is manufactured using naturally occurring latex from the rubber tree and is available in various shore strengths. Due to its high tensile strength and good abrasion resistance, solid natural rubber is ideal to produce parts where a strong robust material resistance is required including wear strips, gaskets and chute liners.

    Why use Solid Natural Rubber Washers?

    Washers are flat rings cut from material and placed between two surfaces to create a level surface, act as a spacer or seal, or spread pressure when tightened. Solid natural rubber has many advantages including high tensile strength, durability and water resistance.

    Common uses of solid natural rubber include conveyor belting, outdoor sealing applications such as window and door seals, and components within the automotive industry such as pumps, hydraulics and flanges.

    Different Grades of Solid Natural Rubber Washers

    • BS1154 Natural rubber washers - This high-grade natural rubber has high tensile strength and is-non-abrasive. This material is available in black or white, enabling it to be used within the food and beverage production and packaging industries
    • Tan Shot Blast rubber washers - A superior, long-lasting material with a high abrasion resistance, this material is ideal for very heavy-duty applications such as scraper blades and chute linings.
    • Abrasion Resistant Natural Rubber washers - This high-quality natural rubber is specifically formulated and manufactured to resist abrasion and wear, it has high elasticity and is an effective seal under low compression settings. Available in black, red or white.
