- Economical general purpose rubber.
- Good UV resistance.
- Cut into convenient strips.
Neoprene Rubber Strip is simply the same versatile and economical general purpose type of rubber we offer in sheet, cut into convenient strip form. Because of its good sealing performance and UV resistance, Neoprene rubber is often selected for lining and sealing joints. In these applications it is both easy to work with and long lasting.
Reflecting its popularity, Neoprene Rubber Strip is available in a huge selection of sizes and thicknesses. This all-round rubber is highly flexible and has good resistance to heat and flex cracking.
Applications for Neoprene Rubber Strip include...
- Making seals and gaskets for water pipes and tanks
- Floor protection and anti-slip strips
- Bumper strips and protective linings
- Seal strips for gutters and roofing
- Sealing around sheds and metal sheeting
- Sealing of refrigeration fluids and in heating, air conditioning or ventilation systems
If you're thinking about using rubber for sealing, it may well be worth checking the rubbers compatibility with the media first. To make this easy, we've put together a comprehensive guide that details the general chemical compatibility and resistance of 8 different types of rubber (including this one). You can access it right here.
What glue should I use to stick it down?
It depends a little on what surface area we’re talking about. If it’s small and really high strength adhesion is required, a super glue that is compatible with rubber, such as Weicon VA 8406 or Weicon VA 100 could be ideal. For larger areas, a sprayable adhesive or contact adhesive may be the answer.
We keep saying “may” for a reason though. It all depends on what you need to stick it to, temperature, desired cure time and so forth. There’s a really great tool called the Weicon Adhesive Finder (www.adhesive-finder.com) that may be able to assist .For further information and assistance please do not hesitate to contact us.
Does it come with an adhesive backing?
Not as standard no. It can be arranged on special request.
Are other colours available?
No, not of this particular grade.
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.
How can I cut this rubber?
You’ll be able to cut some of the thinner grades with scissors, up to about 3mm (depending on the scissors). Thicker strips are best cut with a box cutter (Stanley knife).
