UTEX industries has created over 600 formulations of rubber compounds that we use for our customers. They range from a Nitrile (NBR) all the way to a Perfluoroelastomer (FFKM). We have chemists and a dedicated lab on site that test each batch as it is made. We are able to test various characteristics of each rubber such as tensile, elongation, tear strength, compression set, specific gravity, peel strength, and much more. Along with maintaining the quality of our rubber and development of new rubber, our lab also helps to provide low quantity production or small-scale molded parts. We compound an average of 600,000 lbs of rubber a year.
Some applications require high-precision solutions. When existing production parts aren’t up to the job, Utex can design custom molded rubber products that exactly match your needs. With the ability to design and fabricate highly engineered molds to fit almost any application, our engineering team can transform an abstract request into a finished product tailored to your specifications.
For the past 80 years, we’ve been collaborating closely with our customers to interpret their ideas into a broad range of cost-effective rubber molding solutions—from simple I.D./O.D. rings to complex geometric profiles. Our custom rubber molding process has produced more than 5,000 unique parts that are now used in industries such as oilfield, petrochemical, medical, pulp, and paper facilities.
