Non-Marking Rubber: A very useful characteristic of pure gum rubber is that it is non-marking. No matter what type of color variation it comes in, brown to light tan, a natural rubber product will not leave any stains or marks on the places where they are used. This feature is especially useful in applications like window cleaning.
Eco-Friendly: Unlike most other sheet rubber products, natural gum rubber is eco-friendly. This is because the material is naturally occurring and extracted from the latex of rubber trees. It does not contain any other blend of synthetic elastomers and the production of these sheets leaves behind almost zero waste. Eco-friendly sheet rubber is great for consumers because not only are they great for the environment, they are also far more affordable than their synthetic rubber counterparts.
Has a very high tensile strength
Can resist most organic salts, ammonia, acids, and alkalis
Able to operate in temperatures between -20° F and 170° F
Pure gum rubber can be used for some medical applications
Not recommended for use with strong caustic oils and chemicals
Ideal for industrial applications that need good “bounce-back” characteristics from rubber parts
