Cure Time and Temperature:

Cure for thickness up to ¼”

Pressure, Saturated Steam (Autoclave)3 hrs @ (20psi) 260°F (126°C)
Internal Steam Cure7 hrs. @ 20psi 260°F (126°C)
Atmosphere Steam Cure24 hrs @ 200°F-205°F (93°C-96°C)

Note: All reference to cure psi represents gauge pressure.

**Cure times may require tunings to compensate for low temperatures, heavy metal thicknesses, and other anomalies. Contact SRR Technical Department for recommendations on lining thicknesses over ¼”.


Ideal storage temperature is 50°F not to exceed 85°F and shelf life is 180 to 45 day range respectively.

Depending on storage conditions it may be possible to use rubber linings beyond shelf life. Please contact Salem-Republic Rubber Company for technical advisement before usage.

Application Suggestions

  • SR255 lining shows acceptable rubber to metal adhesion with Tie Gum. 
  • For gauges greater than ¼” plying up to desired thickness is recommended using a 45°/135° butt splice with offset seams on all but the top layer. 
  • Use a heated table that warms rubber to approximately 120°F(49°C) prior to applying linings and Cap Strips. 
  • Experienced applicators may have techniques which produce equal or superior results and by no means are Salem-Republic Rubber Company’s application suggestions meant to replace these proven techniques. As long as those procedures fall within industry standard lining application guidelines.
