Insertion Rubber Sheeting (Fabric Reinforced)

Insertion Rubber Sheeting  

Insertion rubber sheeting is manufactured from a blend of natural and styrene-butadiene rubber (NR / SBR) with an encapsulated single ply cotton reinforcement. The fabric insert helps to prevent stretching and provides additional strength and tear resistance compared to standard commercial quality grades.

Insertion rubber is commonly used in general purpose applications and can be purchased by the roll, manufactured into sleeves, or cut to suit your specific requirements into gaskets using our CNC machining technology. Fabric reinforced rubber sheet (insertion rubber) is also available to buy online at PAR Direct by clicking the link above.
