Rubbers are commonly used for applications which require flexibility and are seen as a vibration insulator but rubber can deteriorate quickly when exposed to oils and extreme heat and cold.

This however can be resolved by using high performance thermoplastics or polyurethane which is chosen for its excellent salt water resistance, high abrasion and high wear resistance. Dotmar’s products go one step further than rubber for applications requiring higher rigidity, stiffness and load bearing capacity and are used within an array of industries such as materials handling, packaging and industrial manufacturing.
