Rubber Extrusions 101

Elbex - Rubber Basics

Rubber extrusions can assist companies in several different industries, so here are a few quick facts about these versatile products. 

Size Ranges of Extrusions

Rubber extrusions and similar products can be made at various sizes and lengths, depending on their application. At ELBEX, we can produce extrusions at profiles as small as 0.0625 inches. 

We can also manufacture extruded products as wide as 18 inches, up to 8 inches thick (or as small as 0.03 inch thickness), and with diameters as large as 8 inches. 

Our capabilities to produce extrusions at these parameters is what sets us apart from other companies. We also manufacture to RMA standards, and if a special tolerance is required, we will work with each customer to achieve their desired products. 

Materials Used

Besides manufacturing extrusions to various sizes, we can also use several different materials in order to help our customers meet their project goals. 

Commonly used materials in our extruded products include EPDM, nitrile, neoprene, polyisoprene, butyl, and silicone. Depending on the exact use, we can even help develop materials that meet specific project requirements. 

ELBEX can even offer a variety of secondary services — such as vulcanized splicing, cutting, printing, taping, punching, and slitting — plus we can provide custom colored extrusions.
