Rubber types with unique properties for any industry

There are many different types of rubber and each type of rubber has its unique properties. Each type of rubber has its variants which can differ in relation to color, property and price range.

At Olet Industrigummi A / S, we only use European suppliers of rubber compounds. It ensures us a high and consistent quality from delivery to delivery. At the same time, this means that we can offer the desired documentation if, for example, the rubber is to be used in the food industry.

The properties of the rubber types vary and it is possible to get rubber there:

  • Is fire retardant
  • Can be approved for food contact
  • Has a high wear and tensile strength
  • Has resistance to oil, petrol and chemicals
  • Has great resistance to Ozone
  • Has a high temperature resistance

And much more.

In order for the rubber items to have the right function and service life, it is important to choose the right type of rubber. We help you find the right type of rubber, based on your specifications and requirements. In this way, we ensure that the rubber type is specially selected for the correct environment and economy.

Rubber items are used for countless things that we encounter and use in our everyday lives. Everything from tires to food and medical equipment. More than 25,000,000 tonnes of natural rubber and synthetic rubber are manufactured, sold and used every year, seen worldwide. And demand is rising every year.
