Electrical Safety Matting Overview

Electrical safety mat

Electrical Safety Matting - how to use it and where.

How does Electrical Safety Matting work?

The rubber used to manufacture electrical safety matting is a natural dielectric material, with a molecular structure that inhibits the flow of electric charge and prevents the free flow of electrons. This outstanding electrical resistance property is what makes the rubber the ideal insulator.

Which industries use Electrical Safety Matting?

Electrical safety mats are used amongst a selection of professional industries to ensure safety during a range of processes. These industries include:

  • Manufacturing
  • Engineering
  • Construction
  • Green Energy
  • Automotive
  • Large scale electrical works
  • Small scale electrical works

Where should you use Electrical Safety Matting?

We recommend our clients use electrical safety matting in any area where a health and safety inspection identifies risk of electric shock. Some of the most popular applications of electrical matting include:

  • Electrical Switchboards
  • Power Transmission Rooms
  • Power Plants
  • Lift Control Gear Rooms
  • Machine Control Gear
  • Portable Protection for Engineers

How do you maximise safety when using Shock Resistant Safety Matting?

Before utilising it is vital you select the correct class and voltage resistance to suit your application. If you are unsure on the matting you require, please visit https://www.deltarubber.co.uk/electrical-safety-matting or contact one of our expert team members for assistance.

We recommend when using electrical matting you wear electrically insulated gloves and make use of an operator stand on top of the mat, this enhances the protection of direct shock through the operator’s body.

What are the sizes of Electrical Safety Mats?

We stock and sell a comprehensive range of electrical safety mats to suit various voltage requirements and applications.  As standard we sell matting in 3 widths: 914mm (3ft), 1000mm, 1220mm (4ft) and in any lengths from a metre to a full 10 metre roll.

We have the in-house capability to precision cut your matting to bespoke sizes if required, please contact our team for more information.

What is Polyurethane Rubber

Polyurethane Rubber

Polyurethane holds mechanical properties that give it the strength of rigid plastic combined with the elasticity of rubber

Polyurethane rubber is an elastomeric material made from polymers which has been adapted to produce a broad spectrum of products. Polyurethane holds mechanical properties that give it the strength of rigid plastic combined with the elasticity of rubber. Consequently, being an elastomer it has two main traits – elasticity and resiliency. In addition, Polyurethane Rubber is known for;

• Water, oil and grease resistant
• Strong bonding properties
• Electrical resistance
• High resiliency for wear/tear
• Moderate temperature resistance
• Impact absorption
• Good recovery when compressed

Where is it Used?

Due to its high resistance to abrasion and tears, it can be found in a number of products, from gaskets to paint rollers to gel pads. Due to its anti-vibration properties it is also commonly used in automotive, plant & machinery and other transportation sectors. It is also a popular material of choice for numerous parts such as gaskets, tubing, sheet, belts and hoses – all frequently used in automotive.

The low weight of elastomers and their machinability, also make Polyurethane rubber a great choice for dozens of applications in building and construction.

Are there any limits to Polyurethane Rubber?

Being a composite material, it is more costly than other alternative materials

Need any material advice or assistance?

Here at Delta Rubber, we are able to supply numerous products using a large variety of different grades of Polyurethane Rubber, including sheet, our online shop to buy Polyurethane Sheet direct, seals and gaskets.

Please contact us for our expert advice on materials for any project.

What is Silicone Sponge

Silicone Sponge Rubber

Silicone Sponge is a closed cell elastomeric material which is expanded at the time it is heat cured

Silicone Sponge Rubber is a closed cell elastomeric material which is expanded at the time it is heat cured. This expansion process creates the closed cell sponge structure. In addition it is low toxicity and CFC free which makes it an environmentally friendly material.

It is very versatile due to its many desirable properties;

  • Low water absorption (<1%)
  • Excellent Ozone and UV resistance
  • Temperature tolerances -60c -230C
  • Excellent compression properties
  • Good thermal, acoustic and electrical insulator

 

Where can it be Used?

Silicone Sponge is often used with applications needing to seal against heat transfer or water in the form of either gaskets or seals. Its ozone and UV resistance along with waterproofing means it is perfect for use in many outdoor applications such as in the marine environment. It is also used for cushioning and vibration insulation, such as in aerospace and other transportation industries, where sound insulation is needed. Other more everyday applications include in lighting fittings, oven seals, and cooker hob seals. In addition, its sealant properties often mean that Silicone Sponge is the material of choice in the automotive sector.

 

Are there any limits to using Silicone Sponge Rubber?

Silicone Sponge is highly inert and does not react well with some chemicals and oil. It is also relatively weak and will tear easily.

 

Fun Fact! 

Silicone Sponge is usually white, as opposed to black which is so commonly associated with rubber products. However, it can also be found in rusty red/red oxide colour or blue.

 

Need any material advice or assistance?

Here at Delta Rubber, we are able to supply numerous products using a large variety of different grades of Silicone Sponge Rubber, including sheet, strip, seals and gaskets.

Please contact us for our expert advice on materials for any project.

What is Nitrile Bonded Cork

Nitrile Bonded Cork

Nitrile Bonded Cork - cork granules bonded together using Nitrile rubber to give resilience and flexibility

Nitrile Bonded Cork is made from cork granules which are then bonded together using Nitrile rubber, which creates a brown material with black pigments of rubber. Mixing these two materials produces an economical material which has the resilience and flexibility of rubber combined with the compressibility of cork. In addition it has;

  • Good resistance to oil and other fuels
  • Temperature resistance -20C to +120C

 

Where can it be Used?

With the properties outlined above, Nitrile Bonded Cork is understandably an excellent material for multi purpose gaskets and other sealing solutions. It is also often found in anti-vibration settings, roller coverings, valve covers, electrical transformers and general seals, in numerous automotive and other general engineering applications. It may also be used in construction and plant & machinery environments, where anti vibration insulation and expansion joints/building spacers are needed.

 

Are there any limits to using Nitrile Bonded Cork?

This material should not be used where weather resistance is needed, and it has limited high temperature resistance.

 

Fun Fact! 

Cork is harvested from the Cork Tree, found in the Mediterranean and is combinable with many different rubber-based products. As well as Nitrile, there are several other rubber materials which can be combined to produce rubber compounds, including Neoprene cork, Silicone cork and moulded cork. Each display different attributes and qualities to suit varying application requirements.

 

Need any material advice or assistance?

Here at Delta Rubber, we are able to supply numerous products using a large variety of different grades of Nitrile Bonded Cork, including sheet, strip, seals and gaskets.
