There are several types of cloth-inserted rubber materials available, each offering its own unique benefits. Cloth-Inserted rubber consists of an elastomer such as SBR, Neoprene, or Nitrile/Buna-N, impregnated with one or more layers of fabric, usually polyester, nylon, cotton, or fiberglass. The fabric reinforcement significantly increases tear/tensile strength and provides high dimensional stability, while reducing gasket creep in flanged gasket applications with high compression loads.
UIP offers a variety of cloth-inserted rubber options in various widths and thicknesses, each with its own advantages. It is important to choose the right elastomer for your application. We are happy to help you determine the suitable product for your needs.
