Natural rubber is obtained from latex, a natural secretion of certain plants. Latex is composed of long polymer chains which must be partially broken between rollers or rotating blades to soften or grind the rubber before adding compounding ingredients. Compounded rubber is then sheeted, extruded in a specific shape, applied as a coating, or moulded for vulcanization.
Aquaseal uses natural rubber in products such as belting, hoses, tubing, insulators, valves, and gaskets.
The natural rubber has a high degree of resilience, tensile strength, and tear resistance. In addition to outstanding wear resistance, it has a low permanent set and good flexing capabilities at low temperatures. The average temperature range for this material is from -60° to + 75°C.
Benefits of Natural Rubber
- Can withstand low temperatures, allowing it to bond easily with metal parts
