Rubber Sheet

A rubber sheet is a type of elastomer mainly used in industrial, residential, automotive, and commercial applications. It is a vulcanized natural or synthetic rubber reinforced with one or more layers of fabric. It is usually available in various thicknesses and widths and can be custom-made to meet the needs of specific applications.

When it comes to the volume of production of our rubber products, the rubber sheet is one of the largest we have supplied to various industries in the Philippines. It is very flexible and serves as the finishing touches or protective layers of different manufacturing industries on their products to protect against vibration, corrosion, slips, noise, damage, and more. Of course, a multi-purpose product is made from high-quality compound materials such as:

  • Silicone
  • EPDM
  • Neoprene
  • Nitrile
  • Synthetic
  • and natural rubber. 

The compound materials always depend on where and how they are used. For example, silicone sheet is often used in machines’ core parts because it has exceptional resistance against high operating temperatures to natural rubber, which can be dissolved in high temperatures.

Manufacturing Process

An industrial rubber sheet is a sheet of rubber that a company manufactures for various industries. The manufacturing process of a rubber sheet can be divided into three main steps: vulcanization, calendering and cutting.

  • Vulcanization is a process of heating the rubber to create a cross-linked network of molecules, which gives the rubber its strength and elasticity.
  • Calendering is the process of rolling the vulcanized rubber into a thin sheet.
  • Cutting is the process of cutting the sheet into various sizes to be used in a specific industry.

Benefits

There are many benefits of using an industrial rubber sheet. They are durable, versatile, and can be used in various applications. Industrial rubber sheets can be used as gaskets, seals, and vibration-damping pads. They are also used in constructing floors, roofs, and walls. Industrial rubber sheets can withstand high temperatures and pressures, making them ideal for use in industrial settings. In addition, rubber sheeting is easy to install and maintain, making it an ideal choice for home and business owners.

Which is better, metal sheet or rubber sheet?

There are a few things to consider when deciding between metal and rubber sheets. The metal sheet is more durable and will last longer, but the rubber sheet is more flexible and can resist high temperatures better. Ultimately, deciding between metal and rubber sheets depends on your specific needs.

A metal sheet is better if you need a strong and durable material. Metal sheets can withstand a lot of wear and tear, making them ideal for high-traffic areas. They are also fire-resistant and easy to clean. However, metal sheets can be very heavy and difficult to cut or shape.

Rubber sheets are more flexible than metal sheets to conform to uneven surfaces. They also resist high temperatures, chemicals, UV light, and impact.

Features of RK’s Rubber Sheets
