|ASTM D1418 Designation:||NR|
This material is the vulcanized product of the juice of the Hevea tree (latex).
Seals in food and beverage applications. Most popular material for non-hydraulic sealing applications. Mainly used for dampeners due to its ability to absorb vibration.
|Standard Compound:||-50°C (-58°F) to 70°C (158°F) – Dry Heat Only|
|Hardness (Shore A):||40 to 90|
High tensile strength, high resilience, high abrasion and high tear resistance properties, with a good friction surface and excellent adhesion to metals. Until the invention of synthetic elastomers in the 1930’s, this material was the only polymer available for O-ring manufacture. Natural Rubber features good resistance to organic acids and alcohols, with moderate resistance to aldehydes.
Not widely used in sealing industry due to poor compression set performance and lack of resistance to many fluids.
