Choosing Between Synthetic and Natural Rubber for T Shaped Rubber Extrusion

Material Selection for L Shaped Rubber Extrusion, D Shaped Rubber Extrusion and T Shaped Rubber Extrusion 

Rubber extrusion is useful for manufacturing hoses, tubing and seals, for example. The process involves the forcing of bulk rubber material through a die of a designated cross-section to produce L shaped rubber extrusion, D shaped rubber extrusion and T shaped rubber extrusion, for example. As with any other customization, your return on investment depends on your material selection. 

For example, manufacturers often compare natural and synthetic rubber while planning a T shaped rubber extrusion project. Natural rubber is notable for resistance to mechanical stress, high levels of elasticity, high tensile strength and low damping levels. On the other hand, synthetic rubber materials tend to be useful for resisting damage that comes with both aging and weathering. Some examples of synthetic rubber include neoprene, nitrile and butyl.
