Rubber for the Engineering Industry
Our role in the engineering industry
The engineering industry is very broad consisting of many other subsectors with a market size of £1.16 trillion which is an increase of 2.5% in market growth. We have been working closely with the engineering industry for decades, offering high quality manufacturing services and the shortest of lead times.
Whether you need one of our standard extrusions or something unique, we provide top quality, cost-effective solutions, designed and manufactured directly from our UK rubber facility in Norwich, UK. Our extensive capabilities enable us to manufacture new, or replacement components for the engineering industry and our existing customers know they can rely on our expertise and know-how to manufacture rubber products used in the widest range of demanding engineering applications.
Rubber applications for engineering
To ensure the smooth operating of your systems, here is a list of popular rubber applications with the engineering industry:
- Shock absorbing bumpers
- Garden hosing
- Industrial suction hosing
- Glazing seals
- Machinery gaskets and washers
- Vibration dampening strips
- Impact protection extrusion
Walker Rubber prides itself on supplying elastomeric products for the widest range of engineering applications quickly, reliably and cost effectively. Our UK manufacturing facility has over 70 different stocked materials so gaskets, strip or cut sheet can often be shipped on the same day.Our Capabilities
Why choosing the correct elastic materials for your engineering project is important?
Rubber is a widely used and an essential engineering material. Its unique properties are exploited by numerous organisations in a very wide range of engineering applications. In certain instances, selecting the most appropriate rubber compound for a specific application can determine the success or failure of a project. Walker Rubber maximises the success of your engineering project with our long heritage of design and manufacturing excellence.
Did you know...?
When the Western Concourse at King's Cross Railway Station in London was constructed, it was Walker Rubber who manufactured the glazing seals. With our help, this beautifully engineered structure helps keep the rain off the 50 million and growing passengers who pass beneath it every year. Great considering many film scenes have been shot there.
