Rubber comes in a range of shapes and sizes for use in industrial, manufacturing, and protective applications. Rubber sheets, strips, and rolls are used to make gaskets and protect machinery. Custom seals are frequently made using rubber cord stock. Rubber rods are produced into rubber pieces that are utilized for sealing and cushioning. Rubber cords are thicker and shorter than this. Rubber tubes are used to protect wires, cables, and other delicate equipment from the elements. Rubber balls are used as seals or on the interior of vibrating sifters in the food, beverage, and pharmaceutical industries to help clean screens.
