CRGI is a preferred source of supply for many buyers who source and procure rubber sheets and rolls. From our Bowmanville facility, located in the GTA (Greater Toronto Area), we maintain an extensive stock of various types of rubbers, in both sheet and roll form. This ensures our customers have ready access to thousands of square feet of material, with same or next day shipping available on most items.

No matter whether you require a standard commercial grade neoprene or a more advanced elastomer such as PTFE rubber, CRGI will be able to satisfy your needs. Together with our extensive stocks, CRGI is also be able to slit, cut or laminate your rubber sheets and rolls as desired, or convert the material into a finished part.

Rubber Sheets and Rolls: Materials

Rubber sheets and rolls that we can supply include the following material types:

Silicone rubber. Silicone rubber offers excellent resistance to the aging process. It is also unaffected by sunlight or ozone. Silicone rubber offers little mechanical resistance, and it does not resist aliphatic and aromatic hydrocarbons or steam. It is often used in applications involving hot air.

SBR (Red Rubber). Styrene-butadiene rubber (SBR) is a synthetic rubber developed as an alternative to Natural Rubber. It is recommended for service in applications involving hot and cold water, air, steam, and some weak acids. SBR should not be used in applications involving strong acids, grease and chlorates. SBR offers little resistance to ozone and the majority of hydrocarbons.

EPDM. Ethylene-Propylene (EPDM) rubber has good resistance to ozone, steam, strong acids and alkali. It is not recommended for use with solvents and aromatic compounds.

Nitrile Rubber (Black). Nitrile rubber (NBR) is also known as Buna-N. It offers good resistance to oils, and aliphatic hydrocarbons and gasoline. NBR offers little resistance to strong oxidant agents, chlorate hydrocarbons, ketones and esters.

Nitrile Rubber (White). White nitrile is a superior compound designed specifically for general gasketing, countertops and skirting in all areas of food and biotechnology processing. White nitrile sheet has good resistance to oily and greasy food products. This white colored sheet is non-marking. The ingredients of White nitrile are food- grade.

Butyl Rubber. Butyl rubber (IIR) is a blend of polymers mixed with isoprene.  Butyl rubber is a very good general purpose rubber for many applications. Butyl rubber is known for its excellent impermeability to gases. This characteristic, together with its flexibility and weather resistance, makes it a habitually-used rubber for numerous industrial applications. Butyl rubber is also essential for seals and protection in chemical industries where high concentrations of mineral acids and alkalis occur such as phosphate plants, fertilisers, caustic soda, etc.

Neoprene. Neoprene, or polychloroprene, is a synthetic rubber that has physical properties closely resembling those of natural rubber. Has better weathering resistance than Natural Rubber and moderate resistance to oil, heat and ozone fluids.

Durashield®. Durashield®, or wear-resistant rubber, offers the ideal blend of high tear and abrasion performance combined with excellent durability and noise reduction.

Viton®. Viton (fluoro-elastomer) has heat resistance up to 600°F and resistance to a wide range of oils and solvents; especially all aliphatic, aromatic, and halogenated hydrocarbons, acids, animal and vegetable oils.

CSM. CSM (Chlorosulphonated Polyethylene) has superior resistance to weather, ozone and oxidation; excellent resistance to alkalies and acids.

Recycled rubber. Recycled rubber is made by recovering and recycling used rubber goods, primarily tires. There are many reasons why rubber should be reclaimed or recovered, including the following:

CRGI stocks materials made from recycled rubber. By fashioning new products from recycled rubber, CRGI is able to reduce the environmental impact of unclaimed rubber.

C.I. Packing. C.I. Packing is a fabric reinforced sheet for use in applications where the stresses are generally static in nature.

CRGI rubber rolls are available in the following sizes: 48″W x 50’L; 36″W x 50’L (silicone). Other roll sizes are available upon request. Sheet rubber sizes vary according to thickness.
