Rubber for Marine Applications
Rubber is an extremely versatile and resilient material well-suited for the harsh marine environment. Many marine parts are routinely exposed to salt water, wind, rain, UV rays and extreme temperatures. Rubber offers many properties that make it a suitable choice for a variety of marine applications including:
- Door Seals
- Window Seals
- Hatch Seals
- Finish Trim
- Sound and Vibration Dampening
Selecting the right type of rubber can be complicated. The right choice depends largely on where the part will be used, whether it be inside or outside; the level of compression it will be subjected to; whether it needs to be petroleum-resistant; and the elements to which it will be regularly exposed. Some rubber options for the marine industry include EPDM, Silicone, Neoprene and Nitrile. Many of these elastomers are available in white, non-marking options.
