Rubber sheets used primarily in industry must have a number of properties that will ensure the safety of both employees, the workplace and the tools used during work. The most important advantages of using rubber plates are, above all, resistance to weather conditions, oils and acids. As acids are commonly used in various industries, their harmful effect on the environment must be taken into account. It is for this reason that acid-resistant rubber sheets were developed. What are they? What are they made of? What are they applicable?
What are acid-resistant rubber sheets?
Acid-resistant rubber sheetsare mats usually in the form of rolls of various thickness, which can be cut to the customer’s dimensions. Our boards are cut on specially designed plotters, which allows for accurate cutting of the size specified by the customer. The rubber sheets are made of the highest quality material.
What are acid-resistant rubber sheets made of?
As there are many types of rubber rubbers, each of them has different properties and resistance to various factors. The most popular are general-purpose rubber plates (SBR), general purpose plates with increased resistance to oils and greases (NBR), and EPDM rubber plates, resistant to weather conditions (including ozone and UV radiation) and acids. EPDM abbreviation is ethylene propylene diene monomer, meaning cross-linked in the process of sulfur or peroxide vulcanization of an elastomer, which is this terpolymer. Rubber plates made of the highest quality EPDM rubber guarantee resistance to weather conditions and acids, which is particularly appreciated in many industries, primarily in the chemical industry, but also in the automotive industry.
Where are EPDM rubber sheets used?
Top-quality rubber plates resistant to weather conditions and various types of acids are used primarily in various chemical plants, where they most often come into contact with acids. They are used to make gaskets, various rubber elements resistant to the influence of the external environment, and the use of EPDM panels in full can be used as anti-slip underlays. Another advantage of using EPDM panels is their abrasion resistance, which is why they are often used as rubber pads in cars.
Acid-resistant rubber sheets – characteristics
EPDM rubber sheets, apart from being resistant to acids and weather conditions, must have a number of other features that will ensure their safe use. Due to the highest quality of the material, the EPDM rubber sheets available in our offer have a high tensile tolerance at break, and the brittleness temperature at which the boards are subject to degradation is high.
Acid-resistant rubber sheets – parameters
We offer a wide range of thicknesses of our EPDM rubber sheets. You can get them in dimensions from 1 mm, 2 mm, 3 mm, 4 mm, 5 mm, 6 mm, 8 mm, 10 mm, 12 mm, 15 mm, 20 mm, 25 mm, 30 mm, 35 mm, 40 mm, 45 mm, 50 mm, 55 mm, 60 mm, 70 mm, 80 mm. EPDM rubber sheets resistant to weather conditions and various types of acids, can be cut to the exact dimensions specified by the customer, please contact us to determine the appropriate parameters.
EPDM rubber sheets are characterized by a wide range of Shore A hardness. The standard hardness of the plates is between 40 and 80 degrees Shore A.
