Material Descriptions

Standard

High grade EPDM rubber. Excellent for most all applications that do not come in contact with petroleum derivatives and harsh chemicals. UV and ozone resistant.

Details

There is nothing “standard” about this material. It is automotive-grade rubber with excellent physical properties and equally excellent UV and Ozone resistance.

Nitrile - Oil Resistant

Quality blended Nitrile rubber with a high degree of oil resistance. Excellent for manufacturing plants and machine shops where exposure to shop oils can degrade standard rubber.

Details

In areas that are exposed to grease and oil, use Nitrile rubber. Oil and Chemical Resistance / Nitrile compound: Nitrile rubber (acrylonitrile butadiene rubber) has resistance to aliphatic and aromatic hydrocarbons, acid and alkali. Example include motor oil, hydraulic oil and petroleum greases and paint thinner. Nitrile rubber performs poorly when exposed to oxygenated solvents and chlorinated hydrocarbons. Mats in oily areas must be properly maintained. Examples include MEK (methyl ethyl ketone) methylene chloride, xylene and bleach.

Conductive / ESD

Specially compounded EPDM rubber for the electronics industry. Each module is certified to be 1 x 10 to the 4th to 1 x 10 6th ohms, surface to ground resistance.

Details

The ESD version of Barefoot® has the same ergonomic qualities as the Standard Barefoot®. It also has certain specified electrical properties required by the electronics industry. Each Barefoot® module is tested six times before it is certified, packaged and sealed.
