Natural, Nitrile or Neoprene Rubber?
Which is the correct rubber to use on your application? We use 3 different types depending on the environment that the mount is in and the forces exerted on the mount. This makes sure that you can rely on your mounts having a stable, non weakening bond for their entire working life. Some rubbers react differently with different containments, such as oils and saltwater. It’s important to make the correct choice.

In most cases a natural rubber compound will be suitable. Natural rubber has a decent life and reacts well to things such as 'creep' (a type of wear that means that the rubber in the mount becomes slightly less elastic with time) and varying temperatures. 

If you're using your mount in a situation where it might be exposed to sea water or oil then a Nitrile or Neoprene rubber compound may well be better suited to your application. Nitrile and Neoprene rubbers react well when under such conditions whereas Natural rubber tends to swell and break down.
