Who makes my rubber products?

The rubber manufacturing process is carried out by our extremely skilful in-house technical experts.

As such, every member of our team has a wealth of expertise, which helps to ensure that we can virtually always develop a functional solution to any challenge presented to us.

What applications are your products suitable for?

Gaskets are a type of mechanical seal that are used to prevent leaks between distinct substrate sections. Seals are used to prevent leakage, contain pressure and exclude contamination. While Rubber washers are applied to act as a simple gasket around a stud, shaft or bolt.

Rubber mouldings are used for various reasons, across many industries, such as the aerospace industry, the defence industry, motorsport industries, marine industries, medical industries and telecommunication industries. While our rubber sheeting is commonly used for flooring, as well as to produce non-toxic food grade rubber for the food industry.

Can I choose from a range of materials?

Yes, you can! We understand that different industries and environments require different material standards and specifications; we always ensure that we are using the most appropriate manufacturing technology and most durable materials, including:

● Neoprene
● Nitrile
● Silicone
● Natural
● Vamac
● Epichlohydrin
● Aflas

Why choose rubber for industrial products?

Rubber is the chosen material for use in industrial settings due to its many unique properties which differ depending on the selected compound. Rubber can also be tough, impermeable and resistant to electricity, or it can be used for conductivity, for protection or for sealing; whatever your requirements, we are likely to have, or to be able to create, a suitable compound to meet your needs.
