  • Premium Grade, Certified Fire Resistant Anti-Static Rubber Sheet.
  • Independently tested and certified by the Mine Safety Technology Centre.
  • Widely used for underground mine applications as well as other areas that require a fire-resistant, anti-static rubber.
  • Available by the lineal metre. Custom fabricated parts also available.

FRAS Rubber is a specialised type of rubber that is used in areas where static build-up, ignition points or fire potential are considered to be high risk. This rubber sheeting is made from a SBR (styrene-butadiene rubber) polymer that is modified to give it its fire resistant and anti-static properties.

Our FRAS Rubber is independently tested and certified by the Mine Safety Technology Centre and meets the requirements of MDG 3006 / MDG 3608 Non Metallic Materials for Use In Underground Coal Mines.

This low static and fire-resistant premium-grade rubber has a variety of benefits. These include…

Good Mechanical Properties.

FRAS Rubber has good mechanical strength and moderate abrasion, impact and UV resistance. Our FRAS Rubber Sheet has a shore hardness of 65 Duro (Shore A) and a minimum tear strength of 60 N/mm.

This rubber is often used as a liner, protective barrier or wear pad and exhibits good resiliency.

High Level Performance.

Given that this rubber sheet is used in highly critical applications, it is subjected to additional testing. Areas of measurement include…

Ignitability & Flame Propagation Testing.

  • Has a mean persistence time of the flame of ?30s
  • Has a mean persistence time of the afterglow of ?120s
  • Has a mean persistence time of the flame for each individual test piece of ?45s
  • The afterglow persistence time of each test piece is ?180s 45s

Oxygen Index Testing.

The calculated oxygen index is not less than 28%.

Electrical Resistance Testing.

The mean value for Electrical Resistance on both upper and lower surfaces is not greater than 300 M? (300x106 ohms).

Applications for FRAS Rubber Sheet.

FRAS Rubber is most often used as a rubber skirt, lining, strip, pad or curtain. It is also used for making gaskets and seals and as an insulating, isolating or protection material. Some example uses for this rubber include:

  • Fire resistant skirting rubber.
  • Anti-static skirting rubber.
  • Impact curtains.
  • Ballistic rubber curtains.
  • Underground mining equipment curtains and shields.
  • Anti-vibration mounts.
  • Insulating strip.
  • Isolation barriers.
  • Transfer and joining sleeves.
  • Flange gaskets and seals.
  • Ventilation ductwork seals.
  • Conveyor dust sealing curtains.
  • Mud flaps for underground mining vehicles.
  • Vent bands.
  • Ventilation fan housing seals.
  • Many other applications in the mining, mineral processing, construction, oil & gas, manufacturing, automotive, food processing or agriculture sectors that require a rubber that is fire resistant and/or anti-static.

Will you supply my order in one continuous length or multiple lengths?

We’ll always supply as long a roll as possible to give you maximum versatility (nothing worse than being just a little too short). Maximum roll length for all thicknesses listed here is 10 metres so if you ordered 8 of one size, it would be supplied in a single roll.
