Cure Time and Temperature:
Cure for thickness up to ¼”
|Pressure, Saturated Steam (Autoclave)||3 hrs @ (20psi) 260°F (126°C)|
|Internal Steam Cure||7 hrs. @ 20psi 260°F (126°C)|
|Atmosphere Steam Cure||24 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.

- 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.
