Rubber Types

Soft Natural

This refers to natural rubber compounds usually in the range of 35 to 65 Shore A durometer hardness.

Semi-Hard Natural

A classification of rubber with a face stock in the range of 80 to 95 Shore A durometer. Semi-hard rubbers are normally backed with a soft rubber tie gum. The semi-hard face stock offers strong chemical resistance, while the soft rubber backing provides good adhesion.

Hard Natural (Ebonite)

Comprised of rubber compounds with a face stock that has sulfur content exceeding 40 parts and has a Shore A durometer rating of 100 or more.


A derivative of butyl rubber containing about 1% chlorine with excellent impermeability to gases and good heat resistance. Hardness is typically in the range of 45 to 65 Shore A durometer.


Synthetic rubber produced by the polymerization of chloroprene with good resistance to oils, heat and caustic solutions. Shore A durometer range is between 35 and 80.

*Nitrile, Hypalon, EPDM, and custom formulations are also available.
