High Quality Custom Molded Rubber Products

FAQ

General

Do you have a standard parts catalog?
We do not have a standard parts catalog. All of our products are custom made to customer specifications, although with the thousands of rubber parts we have produced, we may have a part similar to what you are looking for.

Will I need to buy tooling or a mold to produce my product, and if so, how much do they cost?
If we don’t have an existing mold to meet your requirements, we will have to build one. Mold costs vary widely based on the configuration of the part. Contact us for an estimate for your project.

I have an existing mold; can you use it?
In most cases, we can use an existing mold. In fact, in several cases we have helped reduce our customers’ costs by converting their compression or transfer molds to injection molds, reducing molding cycle times and reducing part price.
