SBR rubber - red for hot water
SBR Red Rubber sheet suitable for hot water is a copolymer of styrene and butadiene with properties very similar to Natural Rubber and can be readily substituted as a low price alternative. It has generally good physical properties making it an economical gasket material.
SBR conforms easily to uneven flange surfaces, has good abrasion resistance, excellent impact strength, very good resilience and a high tensile strength. Red Rubber comes in a smooth plate finish or a textured fabric finish which will give you even better seal adherence.
It can be compounded for use as a skirtboard rubber and is often used as a lining rubber, conveyor belt cover or other extremely demanding applications. Red Rubber (SBR) is a very popular flange gasket material for hot or cold water.
SBR Red Rubber is not suited for use with oils, fuels, solvents or hydraulic fluids.
