MacLellan Rubber offer a range of Natural Rubber Sheeting materials to meet the commercial and specification standards required by our global customer base.
Natural Rubber compounds are widely used for their excellent wear characteristics and with some modification their ability to resist high loads and ozone degradation. Typical applications include Bridge Bearing pads and strip, Shotblast booth liners, Impact pads in hoppers, Marine Door Seals.
Our commercial Natural Sheeting products are available in a limited range of shore hardness’s from 60 through to 80 Shore A and offer a good level of physical characteristics, such as Tensile Strength and Compression Set, that conform to the general standards of commodity materials of this nature.
MacLellan’s high quality Natural Rubber Sheeting materials are designed to meet European and Global quality standards for applications typically in the Construction and Engineering Industries, including BS 1154, BS 5400, and BS EN 1337. These products are designed to provide exceptional load bearing and wear resistance.
MacLellan’s also produce Specification Natural Rubber Sheeting products that meet standards including BS EN 1395, BS 2494, BS 5292 and BS 2050, offering enhanced Ozone Resistance and Wear Resistance. These Sheet Materials require high levels of Polymer content and are regularly Batch Tested to ensure compliance.
MacLellan’s FoodSafe Natural Rubber complies to BS EN 1395 and has been developed to be Nitrosamine Free and Animal Derived Ingredients Free (ADI) making it suitable for wide range of applications not only on the Food Industry but also for Drinks, Pharmaceutical and Cosmetic’s manufacturers.
All of our Specification and FoodSafe Natural Rubber Sheeting is manufactured in the UK or Europe to ensure absolute compliance with the standard, using high quality European sourced Natural Rubber polymers. The compounds are batch tested every 150 Kilos to guarantee consistency of the mix, and where required externally tested for compliance.
Typically supplied on the roll, our Natural Rubber sheeting can be easily cut into sheets, strips or gaskets using the appropriate equipment.
NR is the common abbreviation used for Natural Rubber and sometimes referred to as India rubber or Caoutchouc and for high wear applications as Para Rubber or Para Gum. The raw material is harvested mainly in the form of the latex from the rubber tree but only became recognisable in its current form when Charles Goodyear developed vulcanisation in the 1940’s.
