All about Cork Rubber Sheets

by Crazzy Paul Digital Markting Professional

The automotive and electrical industry is growing in the fast pace along which the related industries also are facing tremendous growth. One such is the cork rubber sheet manufacturers.

Cork is a light but stable material. It is made of a hydrophobic material which means, it does not allow water to penetrate into it. Cork has the ability to exhibit excellent moisture resistance and compressibility properties. Its aesthetic appearance makes the product user friendly. Rubber Cork sheets in India has numerous applications and is a hit in the automotive and electrical industry.

Let's look into some of the properties the cork holds:
1. High oil resistance
2. High degree of compressibility
3. No lateral flow
4. High friction value
5. Ability to withstand high bolting pressure.
6. Good quality of insulation
7. High fire retardant ability
8. Resistant to wear and tear
9. Stable to extreme temperatures
10. Highly resistant to sound
11. Seepage resistant abilities
12. Very light in weight
13. Buoyant abilities
14. Indestructible ability

For the above said reasons, cork has several applications and some of them being:
1. Glass separation pads
2. Trivet and coaster backing
3. Seals
4. Gaskets
5. Strips
6. Bulletin board
7. Washers
8. Adhesive backed bumpers
9. Protective padding
10. Die cut coasters and discs
11. Spacers and feet

The most commonly found application of cork goes into the making of Cork Rubber Gaskets and transformer cork.

The cork rubber material that goes in the making of gaskets is the combination of 1st grade granulated cork and synthetic rubber polymer. This combination gives the final product properties of high resilience and compressibility. The cork rubber gasket is manufactured by a typical combination of glycerine-glue and rubber binder in the presence of heat and pressure. The combination mostly contains 70% cork to 30% rubber binder. Addition of rubber is to include in the properties of fungus resistance, chemical compatibility, sealing ability and to tolerate the extreme climatic conditions. This combination of materials is amazing for gaskets and other applications of cork made for various other industries. To suit the chemical requirements and resistance of the gasket, the cork rubber material is available in various options. The density of the rubber and the perfect blend of the cork are quite important to fix the final quality and longevity of the rubber cork gasket. The cork rubber gaskets are mainly used in the industries including railroad, automotive, agricultural, aviation, electrical equipment, tractors, ships, etc.
