Gum Rubber

GUM RUBBER

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.

 

PROPERTIES

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

 

APPLICATIONS

Gum Rubber is a preferred choice for applications that require a flexible elastomer with great compression set, flexibility and chemical capabilities characteristics.

  • Gaskets
  • Pads
  • Seals
  • Tubing
