Check out this video that demonstrates our manufacturing process and how we make rubber doorstops:
This was from a documentary made in 1993 called ”Off the Ground & Off the Wall: A Doorstop Documentary.”
We don’t actually compound the material here – we have the material compounded for us.
The rubber is originally in strip form and is fed into the screw of the machine and injected into the mold under high pressure. It is then unloaded by the operator who pulls off the excessive flash.
The next step is a cryogenic finishing machine – a shop blaster. Using liquid nitrogen, we take the temperature down to about -80°F. The principle behind this is not to freeze the part, but to freeze the flash (the excess material on the bottom). By freezing the flash, the little pellets that hit it in the shop blaster act like sandpaper. The sandpaper takes off the flash line all the way around the doorstop
Then from there it goes on to our finishing department where we sort and box.

Custom Rubber Corp. has taken over the distribution and selling of an important product for companies that distribute and transport casks and kegs.
For years, Custom Rubber Corp. manufactured rubber cask and keg drop mats for Load Stop Manufacturing Co. of Hialeah, Fla. In 2010, Custom Rubber Corp. took over the distribution and selling of the rubber keg pads after Load Stop closed its doors.
“I am both excited and proud to become the President of ARPM,” Braun told Rubber and Plastics News on April 2. “I intend to … lead this Association into a new chapter.” Braun had been Vice President since the group was founded in 2010.
Governments across Asia are pressing businesses to hike workers’ wages and offer minimum wages, which will raise manufacturing costs and therefore the products they sell, according to a recent article in the Wall Street Journal.
Officials hope that the raises in wages will prevent outbreaks of labor unrest that have “toppled Middle Eastern regimes recently – and to calm rising labor actions in their countries,” the article’s authors report.
Custom Rubber Corp. offers rubber utility mats that provide excellent cushioning and protection against impact and abrasion. They can effectively be used as a durable rubber liner and mat to protect a wide variety of objects and surfaces.
At Custom Rubber Corp., our anti-vibration pads help control excess motion for machinery. Our line of vibration-dampening rubber pads give much-needed cushioning for drill presses, lathes, stamping machines and other equipment that require very precise accuracy to be effective.
The pads serve as an economic solution to control vibration and noise. Too much vibration in a piece of machinery can eventually cause small parts to loosen and/or disconnect. The use of the pads can help to protect your machinery, and the people who work on the machines.
Benefits of Anti-Vibration Pads
Cushion commercial equipment
Soften noise naturally, creating a better work environment
Can be used under large equipment with high levels of stress and compression
Protect sensitive machine controls, components and settings
Can be cut to the size of a factory floor for a customized solution – 18×18 pads that can be cut and stacked.
Pads can be stacked for additional protection and noise reduction.

Custom Rubber handle grip model 105345 is a good alternative to Hunt Wilde model RG 14. The primary difference is the high-quality rubber material used in the Custom Rubber grip, compared to the vinyl used by Hunt Wilde.
The 105345 rubber handle grip is molded with a non-slip, no gloss, notched or grooved finish to offer exceptional grip and handling. The rubber used is significantly more durable than the vinyl used by other grip manufacturers, including Hunt Wilde.
Custom Rubber’s handle grip has a slight bulge in the center section, which makes the rubber grip more comfortable for long periods of use.
Each rubber handle grip measures 4.25 inches (4 1/4”) long by 1.125 inches (1 1/8”) OD. They are designed to fit securely over a diameter of up to 1 inch (1″). The grip has an approximately 0.80-inch internal diameter. If necessary, regular dish soap can be applied to the inside of the grip or the bar/pipe to make installation easier.
We can make the grip in any color you like. Call today to get a quote and consider using Custom Rubber handle grips for your application.
