Rubber Sheeting


Rubber Sheeting

Rubber Sheeting
Rubber is an extremely versatile material with excellent sealing capabilities, however it is important to note that rubber can vary greatly in terms of performance and quality.

For day to day general use, commercial rubber sheeting is used. It is the cheapest form of rubber sheet and is  available in many different thicknesses.  It can be supplied with a fabric "insertion" to improve tear strength for gaskets and strips and in most cases is reasonable for most areas of application but generally not excellent. When certain criteria needs to be met, ie oil resistance or high temperature or high abrasion, then the rubbers listed below come into their own for their individual properties.

Specification Rubber is made to exacting standards as outlined in BS1154, BS2751, BS2752, BS5400, BS921 etc. For example, if a rubber must be of a consistent hardness roll after roll, year in year out, then specification rubber is the only way to guarantee this as it is made to the exact same quality each and every time.

Please call us to ensure specific criteria is met or alternatively click here and scroll to the bottom of the page to see a selection of available material.

Gaskets


Gaskets

We can supply a variety of gaskets in many different materials using different cutting techniques, such as a CNC cutter, High pressure water or the more traditional method of a press & steel cutting tools.

Rubber gaskets
For low pressure applications

Rubber, or synthetic versions are commonly known as elastomers. This type of material is very commonly used as a gasket material for low pressure/low seating stress applications. Elastomers are available from a wide range of materials that will perform in temperature ranges of -60C - +315C. There is usually an elastomer that will perform with most chemical services. See the specification sheets of the elastomers available

Further information:
Common rubber gasket materials:-

Fluoroelastomer (Viton®)
Chloroprene (Neoprene®)
Natural rubber
EPDM
Nitrile
Silicone
Butyl
Hypalon®

See the gasket materials page for details of the full range of products we carry.

Asbestos free fibre gaskets
For steam, water, oil, fuel, gas & general use

Since the ban of asbestos based gasketing materials, there has been the introduction of many alternative grades “application specific”. Unfortunately, gone are the days that one material (CAF) is suitable for most services. Please contact us with your application criteria including “temperature, pressure and the media”. Feel confident that we can offer you a suitable material for your requirements.

Semi-metallic gaskets
High & super high temperature for demanding conditions.

A semi-metallic gasket is a composite gasket, which consists of both non-metallic and metallic materials. The metal generally provides the strength and resilience of the gasket. These gasket types are suitable for both low and high temperature/pressure applications. A wide range of materials are available.

Further information:
Types:
Metal Jacketed Gaskets
Spiral wound Gaskets
Cammprofile Gaskets

Nitrile Gaskets
Nitrile cork is widely recognised as the gasket of choice for motor vehicles as it provides a very good resistance to oil and fuel. This gasket is not just limited to the motor industry as it has many uses for a variety of industries.

It can be provided in a variety of grades depending upon your requirements.

Hose Couplings and Fittings


Hose Couplings and Fittings

Whatever application you may have, we are sure you will find a coupling or fitting to meet your needs. We also supply hose clamps to secure your choice in place.

Our fast moving hose fittings and hose couplings include:-

Bauer couplings
Bauer couplings or lever lock couplings are a common fitting, found in agriculture and water authorities amongst other industries due to it's ease of use and quality under often highly demanding applications.

We offer all parts individually as a male Bauer, female Bauer, Bauer lever ring and Bauer O-ring. The Bauer coupling range starts from 2" hose diameter up to 8" diameter.

We regularly fit the couplings in house to PVC and rubber suction pipes, mainly 4" and 6" diameters and secure them with stainless steel strapping. 

Cam-lock couplings
Camlock couplings, or camlocks or cam and groove couplings as they are collectively known, are a quick fit coupling used in a variety of industries. 

BSP couplings
Standard male and female BSP threaded couplings to fit hoses from 1" to 4" as standard. Other sizes available on request.

These are particularly useful as a pump connector, a hose joiner and any other application where a BSP thread is involved.

Available in standard malleable iron, brass and stainless steel, as well as polypropylene and nylon.

Air hose couplings
Oxy-acetylene couplings 
Brass hose tails

If you can't find what you are looking for,  please feel free to call us on 01524 844002 or fax us on 01524 33623.  Alternatively you can e-mail sales@lancasterrubber.co.uk

Rubber Extrusions


Rubber Extrusions

For some applications, a fully moulded rubber product is not a viable option due to the cost involved, size required, and even something as simple as fitting constraints. For this type of part, an extrusion could be the answer. It can be supplied as either a finished part, a full length to be cut and fitted on site, or even vulcanise joined into an endless length.

We can supply hundreds of different rubber extrusions, with many being available off the shelf without the need to wait for production and without the cost of tooling, as well as being able to buy reasonable amounts rather than minimum production runs.

If however, you have an extrusion that is new or not available from the shelf, then we can quote you to manufacture a tool to make the rubber extrusion and thereafter the tool is there for your future orders.

Due to the amount of different rubber extrusions we supply, we cannot show them all here, however we will be adding images as we go along of some of the more popular extruded rubber products we supply.

Rubber and Sponge Cord


Rubber and Sponge Cord

Rubber cord and sponge cord, also known as O-ring cord are very useful sealing products for many applications.

We can supply solid rubber cord as Neoprene cord and Nitrile Cord in thickness' ranging from 3mm to 25mm and can supply thicker gauges subject to minimum order quantities. Also available are cords made from other polymers including silicone and Viton.

Neoprene Sponge cord is available in the following diameters, 3mm, 6mm, 8mm, 10mm, 12mm, 19mm and 25mm. 

PVC and Rubber Hose


PVC and Rubber Hose

Both PVC and rubber are good for different reasons, PVC is lighter but not always as strong, PVC may perform better with certain liquids and can be cheaper, rubber will last longer than PVC in UV light and when dragged around, but is usually heavier. Polyurethane products are especially used in highly abrasive applications. If you are not sure which option is best, please don’t hesitate to contact us for more information.

The rubber hose section concentrates on the most popular rubber hoses available, for conveying such mediums as air, water, oil, food and steam. These are the most popular rubber hose products we supply but not all of them. If there is a particular rubber hose you use that you can’t see then please let us know as we probably supply it anyway.

The PVC hose section looks at PVC hoses, again for moving water, dust, oil, food and slurry. There are many PVC hoses available, as well as ductings, these being the more commonly used ones.

Flexible Metallic Hoses


Flexible metallic hoses are ideal for situations where a standard PVC or rubber hose cannot cope with the stress or pressure that is required for the job in hand.

These hoses are available in both PTFE and stainless steel materials. Each hose can be manufactured in both single and double braid depending on your requirements.

PTFE
PTFE hosing has many more applications than that of traditional PVC or rubber hoses due to it's increased strength and resistance.

It's wide range of uses include the following :-

Transfer of chemicals
Food and drink conveying
Pharmaceutical uses
Glue and adhesive transfer
Paint spraying applications
Corrosive materials
Cable jacketing

And many more

Stainless Steel
These are ideal for situations where a higher strength and safety hose is required as they are constructed of an entire welded assembly. Despite it's tough construction, maximum flexibility is maintained providing kink free conveying of your materials whilst still allowing the hose to navigate areas containing turns and curves.

As the outer skin is constructed entirely from stainless steel, this hose has a much higher rate of resistance to the elements therefore providing a much longer life than that of non metallic hoses therefore eliminating the need to repair/replace due to corrosion or wear and tear.

This hose can be supplied in various sizes ranging from 1/4 inch up to 12 inch. Other sizes are available and can be made to order.

It is more than capable of extreme temperatures ranging from minus 200 degrees Celsius up to plus 700 degrees Celsius.
