DEVELOPMENT & DESIGN FOR INDUSTRIAL APPLICATIONS
Our design experts will assist you in selecting the appropriate material for your gasket applications. They base their recommendations on your needs and specifications to accommodate the appropriate temperature, chemical, vibration, abrasion and movement requirements for your application.
We offer the following rubber & gasket materials:
Natural Rubber (NR) can have many different names, Isoprene, Polyisoprene, but is most commonly known as Gum Rubber. Using NR has many advantages such as high tensile strength, superior resistance to tearing and abrasion, and excellent rebound elasticity. Natural Rubber has the most flexibility at low temperatures, it has less resistance to heat, ozone, and sunlight. NR has exceptional adhesion quality to fabrics and metals but does have very little resistance to oils, gasoline and hydrocarbon solvents. Natural Rubber is a great option for sealing product applications.
Diaphragm Rubber are flexible seals that block undesired items between two places. Diaphragm Rubber can prevent many different substances such as liquids, gasses, and other solutions. This material is tough and effective when it comes to blocking unwanted substances. Diaphragm Rubber is an exceptional material to use when in need of a custom sealing product for your next application.
Nickle Graphite is a material made from the properties of nickel and silicone rubber, giving you the advantages of both substances. This material is typically used between metal surfaces, for electrical operations, and for other sealing applications. Nickle Graphite is a cost-effective material that will meet all your sealing needs.
Here at Denver Rubber Company, we carry Nitrile materials that provide flexible solutions for a variety of fabrication projects. We have an extensive stock of Nitrile materials that can be used for your next application.
Nitrile, also known as Buna-N, acrylonitrile butadiene rubber, or NBR, is a synthetic rubber copolymer of acrylonitrile (ACN) and butadiene. Although its physical and chemical properties vary depending on the polymer’s composition of nitrile, this form of synthetic rubber is useful because it is generally resistant to oil, fuel, aliphatic hydrocarbons, and other chemicals. NBR is typically used in the automotive and aeronautical industry to make fuel and oil handling hoses, seals, gaskets, and grommets. Nitrile’s ability to tolerate a range of temperatures from 40° to 226 °F making it an ideal material for applications requiring a wide range of temperatures. Nitrile, like natural rubber, can be attacked by ozone, ketones, esters, and aldehydes. Nitrile makes for an excellent sealing application.
Polyurethane products often are called “urethanes”, they are an extremely diverse product due to the multiple ways it can be configured during manufacturing. This material can be used in the manufacturing of flexible, high-resilience foam seating, rigid foam insulation panels, microcellular foam seals and gaskets, durable elastomeric wheels and tires (such as roller coaster, escalator and skateboard wheels), automotive suspension bushings, high-performance adhesives, surface coatings, surface sealants, and hoses. Polyurethane materials are a great choice when thinking of your next sealing product application.
Silicone rubber (Q) is an elastomer (rubber-like material) composed of silicone—itself a polymer—containing silicon together with carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen. Silicone rubbers are widely used in many different industries, and there are multiple formulations of it. Silicone rubber is generally non-reactive, stable, and resistant to extreme environments and temperatures from -80°F to +550°F while still maintaining its appropriate properties. With the properties Silicone is composed of, its ease of manufacturing and shaping, silicone rubber can be found in a wide variety of products that can be used for various applications.
Hypalon Rubber is high grade and typically used as a rubber strip. This rubber has excellent adhesion to different metals while being weather and chemical resistant. Hypalon rubber is a very smooth material allowing it to lay correctly on different applications.
Skirt Rubber is most widely known to be used on conveyer belt systems preventing unwanted materials from falling down. This material helps block dust and other spillages from coming onto certain surfaces. This material can be used in a variety of industries because of the different benefits it offers. Some of these benefits include flexibility, wear resistant, and excellent sealing properties.
SMOKE & FLAME RUBBER
Here at Denver Rubber Company, we manufacture smoke and flame resistant rubber. This material is generally used in the industry of public safety. The Smoke and Flame Rubber that we manufacture can be used for a wide variety of projects such as sealing and gasket applications. Our company is sure to meet all the standards of Smoke and Flame Resistant materials.
Mil-Spec Rubber is most commonly known in the Military and Defense Industries. This is because this rubber meets the highest grade standards to withstand extreme environmental changes. Our Mil-Spec rubber meets all the standards these industries need such as environmental changes, protect against temperatures, and work with electricity.
Santoprene Rubber is a high-performing elastomeric material. Santoprene Rubber offers many benefits such as flexibility, ease, fatigue resistance, weathering and ozone resistance, and fluid resistance. This material can withstand a high-temperature range. Santoprene Rubber is typically used in the electrical and auto part industries.
Neoprene (CR), also known as polychloroprene or chloroprene rubber, is a family of synthetic rubber produced by the polymerization of chloroprene. Neoprene is a great general-purpose rubber. Neoprene is known for its high tensile strength, resilience, oil and flame resistance, and resistance to degradation by oxygen and ozone. The material exhibits good chemical stability and maintains flexibility over a wide range of temperatures. Neoprene is used in a wide variety of applications, making it a great option for your next sealing product application
PURE GUM RUBBER
Pure Gum Rubber is a natural rubber that does not have any synthetic compounds. This product is soft and allowing it to have great elasticity when under high stress. Pure Gum Rubbers elasticity makes it a preferred material when needing an application made with rubber.
Butyl is a versatile non-toxic rubber product that can be used for sealing applications. Some of the benefits of using Butyl are flexibility, ozone resistance, high heat resistance, ages slowly. This material is extremely versatile and can be used in many different industries from auto parts to construction.
Red Rubbers components are very similar to those in Natural Rubber. Red Rubber is strong, resilient, and can form to uneven surfaces. Red Rubber works well with both hot and cold water and is often used as a liner. This is a cost-efficient and economical material choice for your next sealing application.
EPDM rubber (ethylene propylene diene monomer) is a type of synthetic rubber. It is an elastomer which can be used for a wide range of applications. EPDM is highly compatible with fireproof hydraulic fluids, ketones, hot and cold water, and alkalis, and unsatisfactory compatibility with most oils, gasoline, kerosene, aromatic and aliphatic hydrocarbons, halogenated solvents and concentrated acids. The main properties of EPDM are its phenomenal heat, ozone and weather resistance. EDPM has distinguished electrical insulating properties, allowing it to be used for a variety of applications. It has good resistance to ketones, ordinary diluted acids, and alkaline. EPDM Rubber is a great choice for sealing product applications.
