ORK Door EPDM Rubber Seal Strip High Temperature Resistant Expanded
Rubber strip is manufactured and supplied in various different grades dependent
upon its eventual application. More common rubber strip products
are produced in either Neoprene strip or EPDM strip rubber. Our
rubber strip products are supplied in square section to meet any
given width, length, and thickness you may need. Manufactured
Rubber strip is available in white or black colours dependant on
the grade of rubber chosen and can be supplied in strip, roll or
Neoprene strip and EPDM strip are normally supplied in a black
colour and available with or without an adhesive backing, often
know as rubber tape (rubber strip complete with one sided self
adhesive). Solid rubber strip is ideal for applications where a
heavy load will need to be applied onto it in order to create a
seal. With very little compression, our rubber strip products are
suitable for a whole host of outdoor as well as indoor
applications. Numerous different grades of rubber strip are
available meaning whether it is an outdoor use, a high temperature
strip or a seal against a water application you are after, we have
Solid Rubber strip or coil can give many advantages including gap
filling, anti chaffing, draught solutions, cushioning, as well as
proving excellent resolutions to both packing and filling problems.
EPDM Rubber weather strip is also readily available and is the
process of sealing openings such as doors, and windows, from the
The function of rubber weather strip is to prohibit rain, and any
other water, from entering a gap by either blocking it outright or
by intercepting most of it and returning or rerouting it.
Furthermore, rubber weather strips supplied by Foam and Rubber
Strip have a further advantage of keeping interior air in, and
therefore saving energy with heating and air conditioning. Rubber
strip can be supplied in a solid state or as an expanded foam
rubber depending on the application.
Available in almost and given length and width, our rubber strip
products can be tailored to suit any application. Our rubber strip
products are available in square section, sheet, roll, strip, or
coil formats. Furthermore, any rubber based strip product we supply
can have a peel away adhesive backing applied to it in order to aid
in sealing/bonding applications as well as helping in certain
applications as a third had fixing when clamping down onto it.
With the introduction of a brand new slitting machine in March
2009, it has enabled us to be even more versatile, now being able
to supply solid rubber strip in widths from 3mm up to 1000mm, and
thicknesses from 0.5mm right up to 40mm. With most base materials
being held in stock, the vast majority of requirements can be
turned around immediately. Standard thicknesses of solid rubber
strip products we are able to manufacture include 0.5mm, 1mm,1.5mm,
2mm, 2.5mm, 3mm, 4mm, 5mm, 10mm, 12mm, 15mm, 20mm, and 25mm.
Solid rubber strip is naturally a closed cell structure by nature
meaning it will prohibit the flow of any air or water it comes into
contact with. With little compression in solid rubber strip it
lends itself to sealing with heavy weight loads being placed on top
of it. Frequently used within the construction trades, our rubber
strip products enable sealing to take place through cushioning and
packing of large and heavy metal loads. Most rubber strip is
supplied in a black colour; however certain grades of neoprene
strip and EPDM strip are also available in white.
Our rubber strip (EPDM strip and Neoprene strip) products are also
available in different hardness’ ranging from a more soft 40 Shore,
through to a standard 60/70 Shore and right up to a hard 80 Shore
dependant on grade and choice of material required. Grades of
rubber strip are readily available to cater for any required
application and include medical, food, fire and flame retardant
variants, LSOH, water, chemical grades and many more. Please ask
one of our sales team members which grade of material is most
suitable for your specific application.
Moreover, we also have the facility to apply a self adhesive
backing to any rubber strip product we produce. Furthermore, rubber
can be supplied as strip in both solid and expanded states
dependant on customer requirements. For more on our expanded rubber
strip, please feel free to browse the ‘foam strip’ section.
A common material we supply a vast majority of our solid rubber
strip in is neoprene rubber. Neoprene rubber strip has many
attributes including its suitability for weathering and sea water
applications as well as where mineral oils and greases are
apparent. With a respectable temperature range of -20 C / +90 C
neoprene rubber strip lends itself as an ideal solution to a
multitude of indoor and outdoor solutions. Dependent upon grade of
neoprene chosen certain benefits includes:
- General fuel and oil resistant
- Excellent acid resistance, good ozone / weathering and oxidation
- Available in BS2752 spec material in various harnesses’.
- Not suitable for applications requiring resistance to aliphatic and
aromatic hydrocarbons and ketones.
A common material we supply our solid rubber strip products in is
EPDM rubber. EPDM rubber strip is generally used for water
resistance purposes in components such as roofing applications,
weather stripping, and window sealing etc where good resistance to
ozone and weathering is of paramount importance. Thicknesses of our
standard EPDM strip range from 1mm, 1.5mm, 2mm, 3mm, 4mm, 5mm,
6mm,10mm and 12mm.
With a good temperature prevail of -30 C to +120 C, our EPDM rubber
strip again lends itself to a multitude of sealing solutions.
Dependant on grade of EPDM chosen certain benefits include:
- Good resistance to ozone/weathering and fresh and sea water.
- Provides a strong resistance to abrasion and shock.
- Available in plain or adhesive backed formats.
- Impermeable to gases. Good resistance to acids, aging and ultra
- Available in WRAS and non WRAS approved grades where potable water
needs are required.
- Poor resistance to lubricating oils and petrol.
- Available in different harnesses’ ranging from 60 Shore to 80
