Construction & Civil Engineering
Rubber and reinforced rubber materials have a wide variety of uses in construction, especially in major civil engineering projects. High quality calendered rubber sheeting manufactured by White Cross Rubber in is impermeable, elastic and durable – the essential characteristics required for many construction and civil engineering applications. Being the only UK manufacturer of these types of products means that we have an enviable track record and an understanding of the formulations that are needed to be effective in this market.
EPDM and Butyl Sheeting for Construction and Civils Projects
EPDM and Butyl are two of the most commonly used elastomers in the construction industry as they share very similar rubber properties; importantly they resist degradation through weathering, UV and ozone attack. This enables speciality EPDM and Butyl sheeting to enjoy a long service life in most construction applications where typically it is employed to act as a barrier against water ingress of one form or another.
