Rubber-Cal’s General Purpose Rubber is a durable and affordable high density rubber sheet that can be used for a vast number of applications. Made from tough and reliable styrene butadiene rubber, this black rubber sheeting has a durometer of 50A to give it a firm surface with a fair amount of pliability. The soft rubber sheets are still tough enough to resist most indentations without sacrificing their flexible nature. The elastomer sheeting has been through a chemical heating process called vulcanization, increasing its durability and giving it a smooth and solid finish. SBR synthetic rubber is best known for its high abrasion resistance, making it a great material for industrial, commercial, and residential applications alike. Synthetic rubbers like SBR material are tougher and longer lasting than alternatives. This sheet rubber has excellent resistance to most physical conditions, including abrasions, moisture, and UV light. This makes the rubber material great for applications both indoors and outdoors, as the synthetic elastomer structure can withstand the damaging effects of weather. In addition to its intense durability, this soft elastic rubber has a working temperature range from -10° F to 190° F, so it can withstand the conditions of most industrial settings without showing any wear for a long time. The heat and friction of industrial machinery is no match for this sheet rubber product; artificial rubbers are specially designed to handle extreme conditions. A few key features of this vulcanized rubber sheet are its natural abilities to enhance traction, absorb shock, and reduce noise. Such qualities make this 1/4-inch rubber sheet an excellent material for protective bumpers or pads. The solid elastomer absorbs any vibrations to reduce sound and movement for a safe and reliable surface. Our General Purpose Rubber is available in five different gauges from 1/16” to 3/8”, with this 1/4” as the second thickest available. These thick sheet rubber can be used for countless applications, from keeping abrasive equipment in place to soundproofing or even insulating a room. The large rubber sheets can also be cut into small pieces for even more possible uses, such as making seals and gaskets. This versatile soft rubber product comes with pressure sensitive adhesive (PSA) backing for easy DIY installation in any application. Our General Purpose Rubber withstands even the toughest conditions, making it ideal for high-stress applications.
