Food Quality Nitrile Rubber Strip

Here at Advanced Seals & Gaskets Ltd, we manufacture 1000’s of high-quality food quality solid nitrile rubber strips, sometimes referred to as gasket strips, sealing strips or isolation strips. Food quality solid nitrile rubber strips are all manufactured by our highly skilled workforce using state of the art machinery, following our customer samples of drawings. 

We can produce bespoke food quality solid nitrile rubber strips using our bandsaws, strippers, log cutters and even presses depending upon the size and quantity required. In-house production allows us to closely oversee the whole production process to ensure that we consistently produce high quality, competitively priced strips.  

Our food quality solid nitrile rubber strips are cut from rolls, which are manufactured in a range of standard thicknesses starting at just 1mm, these can be supplied coated with self-adhesive backing or laminated to other materials, which can then be cut into solid nitrile rubber strip in widths starting at 4mm wide and in a choice of 10 meter long continuous coils or pre-cut shorter lengths.

What are Food Quality Solid Nitrile Rubber Strips?

Food quality nitrile rubber, used to manufacture solid nitrile rubber strips, is a high quality synthetic, tasteless and odourless material available in blue or white variants which are used within the food, drink and pharmaceutical industries.

Food quality nitrile rubber offers excellent resistance to animal fats, vegetable/fish oils and greases, as well as higher tensile strength and resistance to high temperatures compared to standard grades.  Food quality solid nitrile rubber strips are cut from sheets or rolls to order, meaning we can supply them to meet your exact specifications in terms of lead time, size and finish. 

Food quality solid nitrile rubber strips can be used for noise/vibration control applications or as a gasket/seal, placed between two surfaces to create a low-pressure seal preventing the leakage of dust, liquids or gas.

    Why use Food Quality Solid Nitrile Rubber Strips?

    Food quality solid nitrile rubber is often used for strip production as it is a high-quality material formulated to conform to FDA standards (Food and Drug Administration). By meeting these standards, we can ensure the material is safe for use in food, drink and pharmaceutical applications, where its colour helps with the detection of dirt and foreign bodies whilst protecting the ingredients from taste and odour contamination.  Food quality solid nitrile rubber strip is water-resistant and therefore does not support mould growth, it also offers resistance to high temperatures, oil and many chemicals.     

    Advantages of Using Food Quality Nitrile Rubber Strips

    Food Quality Nitrile rubber is FDA approved ensuring the material used in strip production will not contaminate or affect the smell and taste of any food or drinks it comes into contact with.

    Advanced Seals & Gaskets Ltd are able to offer a wide variety of products from food quality solid nitrile rubber including solid nitrile rubber strips all of which are available in white or blue depending on the colour of the product it is being used with. 

    This high-quality material provides excellent resistance to animal fats, fish & vegetable oils and greases, confirms with EC and FDA standards and offers a number of good mechanical properties including high tensile strength, abrasion and temperature resistance.

    Popular applications for food quality solid nitrile strips include machinery belts for food processing and packaging, seals, gaskets and protection pads.

    Benefits of Food Quality Nitrile Rubber Strip

    • Water, mineral, oil, petrol and abrasion-resistant
    • Can be formed into complex seals and extrusions
    • Wide working temperature range
    • Resistant to animal, fish and vegetable oils and greases
    • Taste and odourless so will not contaminate food/drink
    • Excellent for food/drink/pharmaceutical processing and packaging

    Different Grades of Solid Nitrile Rubber

    As ASG works with a network of material manufacturers and suppliers, we are able to offer customers a choice of nitrile rubber types to choose from, some of the most popular include:

    Standard solid Nitrile rubber (NBR) is a synthetic rubber with good tensile strength, anti-abrasion properties and resistance to petrol, mineral & vegetable oils and some acids and alkalis, the material also some flame retardancy, and a working temperature range of -20°C to +70℃ ideal for the production of parts used where oil resistance is required including fuel hoses, automotive seals, gaskets and even rollers within the printing industry. 

    (British Standard ) BS 2751 Nitrile is higher quality synthetic elastomer compared to commercial nitrile in terms of its improved elongation at break, tensile strength and resistance to a broader temperature range of -30°C up to +110°C. BS2751 nitrile is manufactured inshore hardnesses of 40° to 80°.   

    Blue Metal detectable nitrile rubber is a synthetic elastomer that is manufactured with an additive visible to metal detector scanners.  This grade of material has excellent tear and abrasion resistance and is suitable for food, beverage and pharmaceutical applications as a way of detecting and reducing contamination.

    Blue Food Quality (FDA) Nitrile rubber has all the qualities of the white FDA silicone rubber, as it conforms to  EC & FDA regulations, for use within food and pharmaceutical processing industries where the material needs to be resistant to vegetable oils, animal fats, fish oils and greases. The blue coloured rubber is preferred for applications where white rubber cannot be clearly seen through the food or drink produce.
