Produced from high grade cork granules with a synthetic rubber binder (Nitrile, Neoprene or SBR).
This combines the resilience of rubber with the natural compressibility of cork, producing a material which has high compressibility and high mechanical strength.
Available in numerous grades for many different applications, including automotive, electrical transformers, control gear, switch gear, cable boxes etc.
(Comprehensive data sheets available on request).
Material can be supplied in rolls, sheets, strips or as cut gaskets to customer individual requirement.
Available in thicknesses 0.75mm -12.0mm as standard.
A pressure-sensitive adhesive backing can be supplied on request.
The chemical resistance of these materials is determined by the grade of the rubber binder used. Cork is largely unaffected by petroleum derivatives, but should not be used where strong alkaline or acidic conditions occur.
As well as a rubber binder, grades with protein or resin binders (agglomerate cork) are available. These can also have the addition of a linen reinforcement if required
