Latex Rubber Sheets

Latex Rubber Sheets

Latex rubber sheetsLatex rubber sheets are made of the purest form of rubber. It has a smooth surface on both sides, high tensile strength and elasticity. Latex rubber is available in the classes food safe later rubber, antistati latex rubber and high temperature latex. It is commonly used for printed films, membranes, seals and vacuum blankets.

Latex rubber sheeting is made of natural rubber latex harvested from special type of trees that do not have to be cut down for the manufacturing process. This makes latex rubber sheeting a renewable resource that biodegradable as well.

Compared to calendered rubber sheeting, latex rubber sheeting has great physical properties and is used where tensile strength, elongation and/or tear resistance are needed. Some of the advantages of latex rubber sheets include:

 High tensile strength

 High elongation

 Excellent tear resistance

 Excellent flexibility

 Excellent recovery
