NR - Natural Rubber

NR, or Natural Rubber, is a type of elastomer that is derived from the sap or latex of the rubber tree . It is widely used in various industries due to its unique properties. Here are some key properties of natural rubber:

  1. Elasticity: Natural rubber is highly elastic, meaning it can be stretched to a significant extent and will return to its original shape when the stress is removed. This property makes it suitable for applications requiring resilience and flexibility.

  2. High Tensile Strength: Natural rubber exhibits excellent tensile strength, allowing it to withstand large amounts of stress or stretching before breaking.

  3. Abrasion Resistance: NR is known for its resistance to wear and tear. It can withstand repeated friction and contact with rough surfaces without deteriorating quickly, making it suitable for applications such as tires, conveyor belts, and seals.

  4. Good Tear Resistance: Natural rubber has good tear resistance, meaning it is less likely to tear or rip when subjected to mechanical forces.

  5. Excellent Flexibility: NR remains flexible even at low temperatures, making it suitable for applications in cold environments.

  6. High Resilience: Natural rubber has a high resilience or rebound capability, enabling it to absorb and release energy efficiently. This property is advantageous for applications requiring shock absorption, such as in vehicle suspension systems.

  7. Low Heat Build-up: NR has low heat build-up properties, making it suitable for applications that involve dynamic or cyclic loads, such as vibration isolators and dampers.

  8. Good Electrical Insulation: Natural rubber is an effective electrical insulator, providing resistance to the flow of electrical current. It is commonly used in electrical equipment and cables.

It’s important to note that the properties of natural rubber can be modified through compounding and vulcanization processes to enhance specific characteristics such as resistance to chemicals, oils, and UV radiation. we customize the compound to meet specific requirements.
