advanced search tool

Finding the right product for your application isn’t always easy. It can be difficult to differentiate rubber types, and sometimes comparing technical data sheets can be overwhelming. With a myriad of physical properties, product selection can seem like a daunting task.

Searching Made Simple

We put together an Advanced Search Tool that will help you narrow down the possibilities based on the physical properties of our products. Our advanced search tool can be found at the top of the Industrial’s division home page (see above) or by clicking on this link:

How does it work?

Process of elimination. You can narrow down products by selecting the appropriate product type, polymer, durometer, tensile, grade, and application. For example, if you are looking for an FDA compliant Neoprene, you can select “Neoprene” from the polymer drop-down menu and “Food Grade” in the application drop-down menu (see example below).

advanced search polymer selection

If you are not sure what polymer type you need, you can narrow down choices based on technical specifications. Let’s say you are looking for a 50-durometer rubber that offers a tensile strength of 2,250 min - simply select this information from the respective drop-down menus, and all products that meet these criteria will appear on the screen.

Still not sure what you need?

Our advanced search tool is great, but it might not be enough to figure out the exact product that you need. If you are down to a few products and you would like to compare their properties, we’ve got you covered. Our website is also equipped with a comparison tool! When on a product page, click on “Add to compare list” to add the product to a comparison list.

Once all the products you want to compare are added to the list, click on “compare products” in the upper menu to view the comparison chart.
