Custom Rubber Products

When is U-Channeling Used?

There is an abundance of options to choose from when you need a rubber extrusion profile to complete a project. One type of extrusion profiles we manufacture at ELBEX Corporation is the U-channel profile. But when is a U-channel an acceptable extrusion to utilize? 

The U-channel profile, named for its “U-shape,” is most commonly used to fit within a channel and serve as an edge to a mating piece.

Mainly, U-channels are used to reduce vibrations, eliminate movement, or secure a fit between two different items. 

Quality and Customization

For nearly 30 years, we have been committed to providing our customers with quality extrusions and other rubber products which are customized for their specific requirements. 

It starts with our quality team, which inspects all raw materials that come into our facility.

This allows for complete traceability should something not meet the project requirements later in the process. In addition, the team also inspects the products during the manufacturing process. They also complete a 24-hour check, and we offer a Certificate of Compliance upon completion.
