|You may ask yourself, why use rubber for tools? Rubber is very strong and not as rigid as some other materials. This means it can deal with stress and repeated wear better than some other materials. Also, rubber tools can remain functional in a variety of environments — hot or cold, wet or dry. Rubber tools can also act a good non-conductive insulating material. If using materials other than rubber for tools or products such as rollers, tension pads, or other custom molded rubber, can lead to breakage or even leaking of vital fluids, which can cause loss in production, and lost revenue.
