Rubber is one of the common materials which all humans work closely, and hence we need to understand the variant use of rubber products in our day-to-day life. The companies dealing with rubber often have a complaint that all the customers have all the details related to the product. The only thing they lag is the type of element used during the manufacturing of the product. What’s more interesting here is most of the time, the aspect is rubber.
We all live in customizable worlds, and hence we have the choice to select lovely and reliable products for use. When the concern is about the rubber, one cannot differentiate them on the superior and inferior basis. There is a wide range of rubber available in the market, and hence each of them has their benefits and disadvantages. The strength and weakness of the rubber also play specific essential roles during certain scenarios.
Neoprene is one of the largest synthetically produced rubber, and hence it is one of the most versatile rubber on the planet, making it the best for both indoor and outdoor use. The neoprene also has high tensile strength and can also withstand high-temperature conditions, which makes it best for automobiles, refrigerators, and HVAC applications.
Nitrile is also known as Buna-N, which is also a copolymer of butadiene and acrylonitrile. Nitrile is also the most durable rubber on the planet, which is also used for applications on oil and fuel industries. The strong resistance is the secret behind the use of nitrile, making it robust for pumping fuel and oil in the application. The only flaw in the use of nitrile is it is weak against natural elements like ozone, oxygen, and sunlight, unlike the other natural forms of rubber.
When the industries working with extreme temperature conditions, they love to use silicone due to its high tensile strength and can withstand high resistance and hence making it a premium and most favorable option for working with high-temperature conditions.
EPDM or ethylene propylene diene monomers is also a versatile material that also possesses high tensile strength apart from being dense and versatile. EPDM also comes in the active list of rubbers remaining unchanged in unpleasant conditions like sunlight and ozone.
