When specifying an elastomer / rubber material for your application, there is a lot to consider.
Temperature, environment, compatibility, hardness, compression, and certifications all have to be taken into account.
We know this can be daunting, and that is why we have an industry leading material science team and tool kit dedicated to helping find the best material fit for your application. Learn more by viewing our compound table below or exploring materials in our elastomer / rubber material selection tool.
