Cut solid rubber strip is an excellent general purpose rubber product that can be used for most sealing and edging applications. The universal shape of this section makes it suitable for use within most industry sectors including engineering, industrial, fabrication, marine and automotive. It is an ideal material for cushioning two surfaces, such as protecting heavy equipment and using between metal clamps. It can also be used to make rubber hinges or act as a scrapper on the bottom of industrial doors and machinery.
We are able to cut solid rubber to almost any width and thickness from virtually any material that is available in sheet form. This range includes Neoprene, EPDM, Nitrile, Silicone and natural rubber. These materials vary in hardness between 40°sh A to 80°sh A, where 40°sh A is comparable to a pencil eraser and 70°sh A is similar to the hardness of a car tyre. This selection allows you to choose a material that takes into account any environmental, chemical or temperature demands of your project.
With cut rubber strip the width of the section should be wider than the thickness of the material to avoid the sides going trapezoidal during cutting. For instances where your project requires disproportionately thin or thick solid rubber strips, or occasions where you need longer than 5 metre lengths, we are able to extrude rubber in square and rectangular continuous lengths up to 50 metres long.
We also have the option to cut Custom Sponge Rubber Strips from expanded sponge materials for instances where you require a compressible rubber to create a watertight seal.

Cutting Solid Rubber Strip
Solid rubber strip can be cut from virtually any material that is available in sheet form. Once we have chosen a material that allows for any environmental, chemical or temperature demands of your project, the process for cutting the strip is completed on one of our industrial cutting machines. The cutting procedure varies depending on the thickness of the rubber, accuracy of the cut and number of metres required.
For small production runs or very thin materials, we usually cut the rubber sheet into strips by hand using a straight edge and sharp bladed knife. This is a quick process that allows for a higher amount of precision to ensure the sheet does not move, flex or crinkle during cutting.
Horizontal slitting machines provide a cost effective solution for large production runs or thick materials which cannot be easily cut by hand. These machines require an operator to feed the rubber sheet through a knife blade which cuts the sheet to the required width. Cutting rubber using one of these machines allows us to cut multiple strips at the same time, whether they are the same of different widths.
We also have the option to cut bespoke gaskets from sheet of solid rubber. Using either our water jet cutting machine or knife cutting machine, we are able to cut complex shapes with excellent precision and accuracy.
It is also possible to extrude rubber strip for projects that require longer than 5 metre lengths or complex profiles.
Cut Rubber Strip
Our CAD facilities allow us to work with you in designing the best sealing solution for your project. If your sealing requirements cannot be met by a standard section and you do not have a sample or technical dimensioned drawing, our Design Engineers can design a custom solution to your requirements.
Off-The-Shelf Solid Rubber Strip
With an extensive range of standard products, our
off-the-shelf solid rubber strip is available in a range of materials pre-cut
to a selection of widths and thicknesses. These products are normally
immediately available and can be dispatched on next working day couriers.
Other Custom Seals and Products
Custom rubber seals can be cut or extruded in virtually any shape in most rubber compounds. Different profiles are suitable for different applications and selecting the correct shape, material and hardness is essential to ensure a long term sealing solution. Visit our
