Definition - What does Rubber Lining mean?
A rubber lining is a tough elastic polymeric material used to coat exterior surfaces or the interior of containers (e.g., tanks, pipes and other vessels) that house fluids to prevent corrosion.
Corrosionpedia explains Rubber Lining
Rubber linings are used to prevent corrosion, substance contamination, ignition and explosion.
The process of successfully applying a rubber lining consists of the following steps:
- Obtain the inner dimensions of the vessel to be lined.
- Examine the chemical composition of the stored substance to prevent reactivity.
- Obtain a rubber material suitable for the entirety of the predetermined vessel dimensions.
- Examine the rubber chemical composition to ensure no reaction with the housed chemical.
