    Food Grade 40 Lining Rubber

    Food Grade 40 Lining Rubber is a wear resistant food grade 40 Duro rubber lining with a buffed back.


    Food Grade 40 Lining Rubber is made from a highly elastic premium natural rubber compound and will display excellent resistance to abrasion.  It is non-toxic and non-marking.

    Food Grade 40 has excellent physical properties including cut and tear resistance and is extremely flexible.  It is tested and conforms to FDA 21 CFR 177.2600 “Rubber articles intended for repeated use”.  This makes it suitable for contact with dry, aqueous and fatty foods as defined by the FDA.

    Food Grade 40 features a pre-buffed finish on one side to assist with adhesion when bonding to steel or other rubber surfaces. To achieve ultimate adhesion, TRS and TAC adhesives are recommended.


    Food Grade 40 conforms with FDA 21 CFR 177.2600.

    As stated in FDA CFR 21.177.2600.  In accordance with good manufacturing practise finished rubber articles intended for repeated use in contact with food shall be thoroughly cleansed prior to their first use in contact with food.

    Food Grade 40 Lining Rubber - Premium


    Food Grade 40 Lining Rubber has been designed primarily for use as a wear and corrosion protection lining system.

    It is bonded to equipment to protect steel surfaces from wet and fine particle sliding abrasion or mechanically installed for sealing applications.

    It is predominantly used in the food manufacturing and processing industries.  It is also used in the manufacturing and mineral processing industries for a range of applications which require a non-marking light pigmented rubber.  It is typically used on the following equipment:

    • Tanks and pipework
    • Valves and pumps
    • Sand mills
    • Classifiers and impellors
    • Conveyor belt pulleys and idlers

    Food grade 40 can also be used for any application which requires a wear resistant highly flexible white or food grade rubber including the following:

    • Loading / Discharge socks
    • Wear Curtains
    • Transfer and joining sleeves
    • Variety of sealing applications.
