Available by the metre
This Porthole Rubber Strip is 10mm wide by 6mm thick and supplied by the metre. The maximum continuous length is 2 metres. For example, an order

For plastic and Aluminium port lights it is recommended that you use an expanded neoprene seal (available from our website).We manufacture this product from a high quality off-white natural rubber which is abrasion and tear resistant, resilient, and has a high tensile strength. Natural rubber is semi-soft, flexible and semi-compressible. This material is excellent for creating a watertight seal in brass and bronze port lights, hatches and doors but is not recommended for environments which may come into contact with chemicals, oil or fuel. As this is a natural rubber it has low UV resistance. The optimum operating temperature for this product is -20°C to +70°C.
