Natural Rubber Gaskets (Gum Rubber Gaskets)Polyisoprene (NR)
Natural (Gum) rubber is an elastic material that was originally derived from milky sap or latex of some tropical plants (specifically the rubber tree). The natural rubber also referred to as “gum rubber”, has many positive characteristics. It has superior resilience, high resistance to tear and abrasion, tensile strength, good compression set, and molding properties. Natural rubber is soft and displays good flexing qualities at low temperatures.
