HYTONE® Natural Rubber Latex Sheeting

 

HYTONE™ Natural Rubber Latex Sheeting is made primarily from pure natural rubber latex harvested from live trees that do not have to be cut down. This makes HYTONE sheeting a renewable resource that is environmentally friendly and biodegradable. Compared to calendered rubber sheeting, HYTONE sheeting has superior physical properties and is desirable in applications where tensile strength, elongation and/or tear resistance are needed.

Our unique and proprietary manufacturing method allows us to produce HYTONE Natural Rubber Latex Sheeting with exceptionally tight tolerances and in many different thicknesses to meet most customers' requirements. Due to our manufacturing method, we are also able to produce HYTONE sheeting without any detectable levels of protein.

 Features:

  •   high tensile strength
  •   high elongation
  •   excellent tear resistance
  •   excellent flexibility
  •   excellent recovery
  •   available in widths up to 42” (1.07m)
  •   available in a variety of different colors or we can color match
  •   can be slit, die cut, or otherwise manufactured to your unique requirements
