Normally thin gauge precisely calendared elastomer sheet made from polymers such as Natural, Neoprene, Nitrile & EPDM. Fabric can be “Inserted” in one or more layers inside the sheeting during calendaring, to reinforce the rubber. A smooth or “Plate” finish is generated by polished finishes on the calendar rollers, and textures can be applied by running a cloth through the process on top of the rubber. Cloth finishes are preferred certain gasket applications. Sheets are distinguished from films in the plastics industry only according to their thickness. In general, sheets have thicknesses greater than .040”.
