MIL-SPEC Sheet Rubber Materials

Rubber and Gaskets used in the defense industry must stand up to extreme conditions. Many of these materials must be Mil-Spec Certified in order to be used in the defense industry.  Mil-Spec is a set of strict standards used by the U.S. Department of Defense, ensuring products meet certain requirements, commonality, reliability and compatibility.

UIP provides Military-grade sheet rubber and gasket material in Nitrile and Neoprene in a variety of durometers, tensile strengths, and temperature ranges.  Each rubber material offers its own set of advantages for applications requiring oil and solvent-resistance, abrasion-resistance, resistance to ozone, sunlight, water, heat and steam, as well as offering excellent tear strength, temperature specifications, compression set and vibration dampening.

Other Mil-spec materials including EPDM, Viton, and SBR (Styrene-Butadiene Rubber) are available upon request.
