Rubber cords are popular in virtually all manufacturing industries. They are sometimes referred to as ‘rubber rope’, ‘rubber rods’, ‘silicon sponge cords’ or simply ‘sponge cords’ because they consist of a spongy material.
Rubber cords have a closed cell structure for an excellent seal against water, making them waterproof. They are also very durable, even in outdoor environments. Sponge cords are also highly malleable and compressible. Meaning they are easily adaptable to many situations. As a result, rubber sponge cords are often the cords of choice for demanding applications.
Silicone cords can also withstand both very low and very high temperatures. And they are resistant to UV and Ozone weathering.
Rubber cords are very popular across all industries
Because of their versatility, rubber cords can be found almost everywhere. Our specific, silicon cord products are used across a wide range of sealing and cushioning applications, including:
Weather and environmental seals
For sound and vibration isolation
For motor insulation
Many domestic applications, including boilers; white goods and light fittings
Because silicon cords function well in high temperatures, they are especially popular in the food processing and pharmaceutical industries.
Rubber rods, rubber cords or silicone sponges — whatever you call them, we can manufacture them to your exact specifications
We have a strict quality and production policy and recognise the importance of finding the right quality, density, and grade for your application. We only source our raw materials from the highest quality sources and each process during production is subject to critical quality control checks. All production passes through our final inspection department prior to dispatch. To ensure you receive the highest quality product possible. We pride ourselves on manufacturing silicone sponge sheeting to the best possible standard.
We supply closed cell silicone sponge sheets in a range of thicknesses from 1.5mm to 25mm. As with most other extrusions we can also offer silicone cords in cut and joined rings — or punched gaskets if required. If you have any questions regarding our silicone cords please, don’t hesitate to contact us.
