Neoprene Rubber Pads

Neoprene Rubber Pads

One of the many solid rubber products  offered by Advanced Seals & Gaskets Ltd are neoprene rubber pads, this material is manufactured in roll form usually at 1.4mtrs wide x 10mtrs long and in thicknesses starting at 1.5mm, which are stocked by ASG ready to be converted into various other products including cut pads, supplied with a plain or self-adhesive finish using our in-house laminating service.  Our solid neoprene rubber pads are produced  on-site by following drawings, samples or measurements provided by our customers using one of many state of the art machines including presses, bandsaws or CNC oscillating knives which can be used to manufacture the final product.  From one off samples to multiple batch runs, which depending on size can be supplied as loosely cut parts, or kiss-cut on rolls  where a high quantity is required or for use on fast paced assembly lines.

    **Neoprene sponge is not suitable for use with oxidising acids, ketones and some hydrocarbons**

    What are Solid Neoprene Rubber Pads?

    Using a combination of in-house machinery ASG  can produce square or rectangular neoprene rubber pads with the option of radius corners, and also as circular or oval shaped pads or ‘discs’,  in a range of thicknesses.  Manufacturing these pads in-house means we can offer the option to supply them in a plain or self adhesive backed finish and even laminate multiple types of material together to create bespoke and unique variations known as composite materials.

    Neoprene (or polychloroprene/CR) is a synthetic rubber, black in colour,  which has good chemical stability and maintains its natural flexibility over a wide range of temperatures.  Neoprene rubber is highly durable as the material holds a high tolerance to extreme weathers and conditions, with good resistance to oil, chemicals and ozone.  Solid neoprene rubber pads are available in a range of hardnesses  from  40°- 70° shore (the shore hardness is measured using a shore durometer which indicates  the level of resistance to indentation ,the higher number on the scale indicate a greater resistance - harder the material/lower number indicate less resistance- softer the material).

    Why Use Solid Neoprene Rubber Pads?

    Customers often choose to have their pads manufactured from solid Neoprene rubber  as this material has a range of desirable properties meaning it can be used within countless applications.

    Neoprene rubber has good resistance to oils, chemicals, UV, ozone, weathering and moderate resistance to oils (animal & vegetable) and inorganic salts, with a wide working temperature range of-20°C to +70℃ (depending on grade) and is a strong material with excellent abrasion properties.

    Different Grades of Neoprene Rubber Available

    Advanced Seals & Gaskets work with a multitude of material manufacturers and suppliers, giving our customers more choice when using neoprene rubber.  Neoprene rubber pads can be supplied in a number of grades and hardnesses, some of the main ones being:

    (BS2752) British standard 2752 is a higher performing, stronger grade of neoprene rubber which offers a wider working temperature range of  -30°C up to +120°C,greater resistance to ageing, weathering, acids, inorganic salts, oils and ozone as well as improved strength and anti-abrasion qualities in comparison to standard neoprene.  This grade is available in shore hardnesses of 40°, 50°, 60°, 70° and 80.

    Flame retardant neoprene rubber 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.

    Food Quality (FDA) neoprene is white in colour, and conforms to EC and FDA regulations for use within the food processing and pharmaceutical industries.  Properties including resistance to fats, greases and vegetable oils, combined with a higher tensile strength and wider working temperature range of  -30°C up to +130°C make it a popular material to use.

    Benefits of Using Neoprene Rubber

    • Popular for external applications
    • Durable
    • Variety of Grades available
    • Impermeable to water and dust
    • Moderate resistance to oil, chemical greases and fats.
    • excellent resistance to ozone, weathering and ageing

    The Advantages of Using Soid Neoprene Rubber Pads

    Solid neoprene rubber pads are very popular within a range of industries due the number of excellent properties and the various grades available.  Neoprene rubber pads are used where a 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.

    Neoprene rubber pads are often used as a type of gap filler, where they can create an air or liquid tight seal between surfaces, they can also be used as load distribution  underneath equipment and machinery and also to reduce the stress on materials or surfaces when fasteners are driven through them.

    When used as composites, such as rubber and cork laminated, solid neoprene rubber pads will also absorb vibration when used between objects and surfaces, where there is likely to be a lot of movement or repetitive impact.
