At Nufox Rubber we have extensive expertise in the production of tooling and manufacture of rubber profiles for a wide range of applications.
We have state of the art manufacturing lines for rubber profiles and our engineers can design and produce all process tooling in-house using our dedicated engineering facilities.
We are able to offer a wide range of sizes in the following compounds including:
Nitrile (NBR), Hydrogenated nitrile (HNBR), PVC Nitrile, EPDM, Chloroprene (CR), Chlorosulphonated polyethylene / Hypalon(CSM), Butyl (IR) , Natural Rubber (NR), SBR, Fluoroelastomers / Viton / Aflas (FKM), and silicone (SI), Fluoro Silicone (FVMQ).
We can take your concept through design, sampling, to finished product in-house, with complete control throughout. We have a number of processing options, and our total in-house control of design, manufacturing and tooling ensures that we can maintain timelines and achieve your delivery expectations. We have dies to produce rubber profiles both solid and hollow; a few of which are bespoke. Many dies are Nufox owned and therefore can be offered without development cost.
We treat every project with care and imagination to make sure we specify the optimum solution and the extensive range of manufacturing capabilities ensure that we can create the ultimate end product, without compromise and with quality central to all our thinking.
• Traditional autoclave curing in lengths up to 3.5 metres, allowing for preforming into customer specified shapes, rings, bow fenders etc.
• Constant Vulcanized profiles which exhibit a cleaner finish and can be offered in long lengths up to a few hundred metres dependent upon profile size and ease of handling.
• Salt bath cured profiles (another type of constant vulcanization process) giving better cost due to the higher manufacturing speed achievable, also available in long length.
Standard rubber extrusions can be viewed through our online gallery. Take a look here.
Our knowledgeable technical team are always on hand to provide the benefit of their considerable experience, and will be happy to answer any questions you may have on any projects involving rubber profiles.
We always try to get involved from the start to ensure the best possible solution. Once an initial design is proposed, the Nufox technical team work with you to turn concepts into reality.
We consider the application and the best materials to use and then continue to initial product prototype for review or ‘fit and function’ trials. Once prototypes are approved, we take the product into production and schedule the manufacturing programme, closely linked with our quality control and inspection process.
Recently a customer came to us in need of an urgent new supply source for protection rail, having been let down by another supplier. Lead times were tight but the Nufox team quickly assessed the design and developed an appropriate die to meet a stringent quality criteria.
Six hundred metres were produced to the time scale required with the client especially with the quality of the finished product.
We pride ourselves on being able to make an almost infinite number of profiles, in a wide range of materials to suit your requirements. Some of the many rubber extrusions we have produced in the past, indicating sizes and profiles can be seen in our online catalogue.
It is only a guide and we can produce bespoke items to your specification, so if you don’t see a precise match for your needs, please ask us for advice and an accurate quotation.

Yes, at Nufox we provide you with a product that is totally compatible to your design and functional requirements.
No, but many of our products require tooling development, processing machine set up and compound selection. So the costs involved in this process have to be allocated to the project. But if a small quantity is required for fit and function, this can be accommodated .
If the product is a new development requiring tooling, this can often be less than four weeks. However if the project is complex and requires a specially formulated compound, this can be longer. Once we have your enquiry, we are able to give you an indicative production time.
