Gum Rubber a polymer of isoprene units, a hydrocarbon diene monomer, is a versatile natural material that is cost-effective, resilient and abrasion resistant. When vulcanized it will become a thermoset material.
Denver Rubber Company gum rubber offers many benefits for challenging applications. Inherent properties include:
- Resistant to most acids, salts, ammonia, and alkalis chemicals
- Pliable, formable, supple, soft and flexible
- Cold temperature resistant
- Maintains a high coefficient of friction during most applications
- Shape and size memory
- Tear resistant
Gum Rubber is a preferred choice for applications that require a flexible elastomer with great compression set, flexibility and chemical capabilities characteristics.
