Looking to seal the deal with a manufacturing project? You can’t go wrong with natural gum rubber—a versatile, all-purpose material with remarkable properties that make it a go-to among manufacturers.
Natural gum rubber comes from the latex of rubber trees. This material boasts some natural muscle: with high resistance to tears, shocks, and vibrations in different manufacturing environments. And thanks to a tacky quality, it easily adheres to metal surfaces like steel cords.
There are just a few things to keep in mind: natural gum rubber should avoid contact with fuels, oils, greases, or strong acids. But don’t let that stop you from making use of its impressive air and water resistance. From water pumps to pipes, natural gum rubber is a top contender when it comes to picking your perfect seal and gasket material.
