Creep off for some rubber (5)


I believe the answer is:


'some rubber' is the definition.
(a type of rubber material)

'creep off' is the wordplay.
'off' indicates anagramming the letters.
'creep' with letters rearranged gives 'CREPE'.

'for' is the link.

(Other definitions for crepe that I've seen before include "Fabric with a wrinkled surface" , "Light wrinkled fabric" , "Soft thin fabric with a crinkled surface" , "Thin twenty four Ac" , "One fabric" .)

I've seen this clue in the Sydney Morning Herald.
