Elastomers

 

Neoprene - EPDM - SBR 

Blend

A general purpose material satisfying medium density requirements

Neoprene - EPDM - SBR

Economy Blend

(Self extinguishing)

Meets many general purpose specifications including UL-94HF1

EPDM

Good for outdoor applications, resist weathering and aging

Neoprene

Good flame resistance, weathers well, all purpose elastomer

Nitrile Resists abrasion, temperature range is narrow
Silicone Outstanding heat resistance, excellent in severe weather, wide range of temperature, longer service life

 

Foam

 

Polyurethane

Open cell, flexible, good recovery, insulates against dust and sound

Vinyl

A PVC based closed cell material with low compression characteristics

Polyethylene

White/black material, smooth skin, low water absorption

Silicone

White/Grey/Charcoal, smooth skin top and bottom, low outgassing

 

High Temperature Boards
and Insulation

 

Fiberglass

Thermoprotection in low to high temperature ranges

Non-woven Fiberglass

Thicknesses .005 to .250, reduced dielectric breakdown, minimal swelling, UL approved

Boards

Tight dimensional tolerances, low thermo conductivity, high temperature stability, resists thermo shock

Fabrics UL Specifications, flame retardant, low smoke emissions, resist mildew
Wool Rates to 1800 F, inorganic bonding, molds and forms to most surfaces and shapes
Films and Papers Stiff, tear resistant, dielectric barrier, high temperature insulator, good elongation resistance

 

Miscellaneous

 

Fish Paper

Used for electric insulation, tough, flexible

Fiber Cork

Deadens sound, insulates, anti-skid

Felt

General purpose used to seal against weather and dust, low temperature

 

Foil is an optional surface finish available and applied to several materials to assist in the deflection of heat.
