Research

Our team has a wide array of skill sets and deep industry knowledge. We are prepared to solve your unique challenges and create efficient experiences. We work closely with you to determine your goals and exact requirements and keep these considerations in mind:

  • • How will you use your product?
  • • Do you need a waterproof product?
  • • Do you need color matching or other aesthetic requirements?
  • • Does your product need to withstand high or low temperatures?
  • • Does your product need to be flame resistant or flame retardant?
  • • Will your product encounter corrosives (e.g., oils)?

Answers to these questions help our researchers determine the right material, color and compound for your custom rubber seal or plastic trim. Our engineers may also request CAD drawings from customers to understand how a custom door trim, car molding or rubber seal functions within the design.
