Custom Rubber Products
Custom rubber products include extruded rubber profiles, rubber cords and cord stock, and rubber tubes and tubing. The Rubber Group can also mold rollers and drive wheels to precise dimensional tolerances. We use custom compounds and commercial-grade elastomers with compression, injection, and transfer molding equipment.
Extruded Rubber Profiles
The Rubber Group offers a wide variety of extruded rubber profiles for seals, gaskets, and insulation. These rubber extrusions have a specific cross-sectional shape and are either solid or hollow. Types include:
- circles (cords)
Extruded rubber profiles come in different lengths and are ready for conversion and fabrication. At the Rubber Group, we provide value-added manufacturing such as die cutting.
Rubber Cords and Rubber Tubing
Rubber cords are custom rubber products with a circular cross-section. There are two basic types:
- solid round cords
- hollow round cords
Rubber cord stock is used for O-rings. Solid round cords are specified by outer diameter (OD). Hollow round cords are specified by both OD and inner diameter (ID).
Rubber tube stock is used for transporting fluids and gases in processing, medical, and specialty applications. Nominal tube sizes are based on OD. Wall thickness and tube ID can be used in calculations of fluid flow.
The Rubber Group maintains a large inventory of these standard rubber products, but can also extrude, dip and fabricate rubber cords or tubing as part of our value-added manufacturing services.
Materials and Equipment for Custom Rubber Products
The Rubber Group has developed custom compounds to meet tight dimensional tolerances, demanding environmental conditions, and challenging product specifications. These elastomers include:
- fluorinated silicone
- nitrile (Buna-N)
- natural rubber
Many of our compounds meet UL, FDA, ASTM, and U.S. military specifications. MIL-SPEC materials include:
With our custom molding services, we can also use injection, compression, or transfer molding equipment to create custom rubber products from commercial-grade elastomers. Our expertise includes rubber-to-metal bonding, too.
Extruded and Molded Custom Rubber Products
The Rubber Group supplies custom rubber products to manufacturers in markets such as process control, transportation, medical devices, isolation mounts, and consumer products. All our design and production processes conform to ISO 9001:2015. We can also supply custom rubber parts according to your Kanban schedules.
