Shotblast Rubber Strip

Solid Shotblast rubber is just one of hundreds of materials stocked and converted into cut strip supplied by ASG, with other material types also readily available in sponge of solid grades, some of which are designed for specialist or harsh industries and applications such as solid shotblast rubber.  Solid shotblast rubber is sometimes referred to as Tan Para Rubber which is manufactured in roll form with thicknesses starting at 1mm in varying lengths, which  ASG can use to cut other components including strips.   ASG’s in-house conversion facilities house 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 shotblas rubber 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 Solid Shotblast Ruber Strips?

    Strips of Solid shotblast rubber or para rubber may sometimes also be called sealing strips, impact strips, gasket strips, often used in a similar way to  gaskets placed between two surfaces to create a seal, provide cushioning, anti-vibration or insulation.   Shotblast rubber is produced using natural latex, creating a ‘tan’ coloured soft rubber material - sometimes described as having a similar texture and appearance to material used to manufacture elastic bands. This material has been formulated to have outstanding abrasion and tear resistance, therefore making a very robust and resilient material ideal for use in a range of sealing applications.

    Why use Solid Shotblast Rubber Strips?

    Solid shotblast rubber is extremely strong and durable,  offering a high tensile strength, excellent resistance to abrasion and tear and a good resistance to weak chemicals, dilute acids and alkalis, even when it is cut down into strips.  The material is manufactured in a shore hardness of 45°, has a working temperature range of - 40°C to +85°C and is pre-manufactured in a wide range of standard thicknesses making the production of strips even quicker.

    Benefits of Using Shotblast Rubber

    • Can withstand harsh or abrasive media
    • Working Temperature Range: -25°C to +70°C.
    • Excellent resistance to abrasion.
    • Good strength and durability.
    • High elasticity
    • Excellent tear strength

    Different Types of Shotblast Rubber available

    Black shotblast rubber - manufactured from a black abrasion resistant grade natural rubber.  This material, like the Tan variety, is extremely durable with an excellent tear resistance and an operating temperature range of -40°C to +80°C for use within the most demanding construction applications.

    Advantages of Using Solid Shotblast Rubber Strips

    Using solid Shotblast (Tan Para) rubber strips brings many advantages to users.  It is a highly abrasive resistant natural rubber - even when used with harsh media) that is available in tan or black colour options (with the tan being more readily available) and has a hardness of around 45° to 50° shore depending on the colour taken.   Rolls of shotblast rubber are pre-manufactured in a range of thicknesses allowing for quicker lead times for cut strips as the splitting process used with sponge and foam conversion is eliminated.  Shotblast rubber strips have a very high abrasion resistance and elasticity, designed for very demanding applications including shot-blast cabinet seals, wear or impact strips, chute liners, scraper blades, etc.
