Fabric reinforced rubber articles are created by inserting cloth into the rubber. This type of reinforced rubber is commonly used for conveyer belts, gaskets and any other type of product where a higher strength is needed.
The rubber is reinforced by inserting the fabric. This cloth provides the extra strength needed for a multitude of applications as well as an extra stiffness. The rubber matrix, with low strength and stiffness, provides air-fluid tightness and supports the reinforcing materials to maintain their relative positions. These positions are of great importance because they influence the resulting mechanical properties.
URM delivers products in various qualities. These qualities or types of rubber are commonly defined by various specifications such as abrasion resistance, extreme weather and temperatures resistance, being FDA compliant, ageing characteristics or resistance to certain types of chemicals. These characteristics greatly define the use of the final product. Such as EPDM rubber being used in seals and as an insulator.
