Selecting the Right Material for L Shaped Rubber Extrusion

If you want to select the right material for any rubber fabrication project, then you must know all you can about the environment a part must withstand and the sequence and properties of your application.

For example, companies across industries and across the world have been planning shifts in production to contribute personal protective equipment (PPE) to healthcare workers as the novel coronavirus spreads. Whether you have been planning to contribute medical supplies or take on an entirely different project, selecting the right material for the job is arguably the most important decision. 

Does the part need to comply with FDA standards? Will it need to resist heat, solvents or water? Do you need the part to transmit or absorb energy? It will be crucial to know all you can about the various types of stress your custom part or parts will need to withstand. For example, neoprene rubber is notably resistant to abrasion while nitrile rubber withstands water contact effectively. 

Of course, you and your team will need to consider the cost of implementing custom rubber parts. It is critical to consider both the cost per part and the cost by weight. Though it is important to save money where possible, it is important to remember that the least expensive option is not always the best option.
