Solid Rubber

Solid Rubber


Solid rubber is available in base polymers from Butyl and SBR, through Nitriles, Silicones, and Fluoroelastomers like Viton and FKM products. It's available in various Shore A durometers, with Shore 20 being the softest and 90 the hardest. Colors are typically black and white, with other colors available upon request, in multiple thicknesses, and in sheets or rolls. Solid rubber does not compress; instead, it changes shape and conforms to whatever surfaces it's applied to under load. 



Typical applications include flat gaskets for mechanical and fluid sealing. This material can be found in applications from industrial, agricultural, recreational, vehicular (on and off-road), appliance and electronics, medical, etc. It can also be used in energy-damping applications and sound abatement.

Common Applications
  • Air and Fluid Sealing
  • Sound Abatement
  • Vibration Isolation
  • Damping Reduction
