Rubber Sheet – General Purpose Grades

gaskets-rubber-red-blackRedco™ Red Sheet Packing (RSP)
An economical synthetic sheet rubber blend, based on SBR rubber compound. Mainly used in low-pressure applications where no oil, chemical or solvent resistance is required. This rubber is ideal for seals, gaskets and other sheet applications where a recognizable red color is required. Redco RSP80™ is the workhorse flange-gasket for general service, industrial & water piping.

Redco™ SBR (Styrene-Butadiene)
Redco™ SBR GP60, GP80 is a commercial grade of synthetic rubber for general industrial applications, gaskets, belt skirting and wear pads. SBR represents more than half of the synthetic rubber produced in the world. Its goal is to mimic natural rubber, but is entirely derived from synthetic oils. SBR Contains up to 23% Styrene and is a co-polymer of styrene and butadiene. Although its properties are similar to natural rubber, it excels as a low-cost abrasion material for general industrial applications.
