HYTONE® Natural Rubber Latex Sheeting

A unique and proprietary manufacturing method allows The Hygenic Corporation® to produce natural rubber latex sheeting with exceptionally tight tolerances and many different thicknesses to meet most customers' requirements. 

Because it is made primarily from pure natural rubber latex, its superior physical properties, when compared to calendered rubber sheeting, make HYTONE™ sheeting desirable in applications where high tensile strength, elongation and tear resistance are required.

Our manufacturing process also allows us to make virtually any color. 

Our natural rubber latex sheeting is available in widths up to 42” (1.07m) and can be slit, die cut, or otherwise manufactured to your unique requirements.

And talk about “green”! Natural rubber is inherently an environmentally friendly and biodegradable material. It is harvested from live trees that do not have to be cut down, which makes it a renewable resource.

Our custom rubber products can be manufactured to fit your needs. To view the physical characteristics of our most common formulations, please sign in or register first.

Q: What colors of natural rubber latex sheeting are available?
Virtually any color natural rubber latex sheeting can be manufactured on a custom order basis.  We can even custom color match to your sample or PMS number.

Q: Is your natural rubber latex sheeting FDA approved?
The FDA does not “approve” formulations or component type products. Many of our products are listed with the FDA and have successfully been tested for use in medical applications. Please contact us for additional information.

Q: Is natural rubber latex sheeting powder free?
No. It is necessary to apply some sort of surface release agent during the manufacturing process.

Q: Are there alternatives to the types of powder applied to natural rubber latex sheeting?
Yes.  Please contact us to discuss alternatives.


Q: Can I have natural rubber latex sheeting made to a unique thickness?

Yes.

Q: Are custom compounds or formulations available for natural rubber latex sheeting?

Yes.


Q: What is the difference between sheeting & film?
Generally speaking, sheeting is flat material that is 0.020” (0.51mm) and thicker.  Film is flat material that is less than 0.020” (0.51mm) thick.
