Rubber Product Design

Some applications require high-precision solutions. When existing production parts aren’t up to the job, Utex can design custom molded rubber products that exactly match your needs. With the ability to design and fabricate highly engineered molds to fit almost any application, our engineering team can transform an abstract request into a finished product tailored to your specifications.

For the past 80 years, we’ve been collaborating closely with our customers to interpret their ideas into a broad range of cost-effective rubber molding solutions—from simple I.D./O.D. rings to complex geometric profiles. Our custom rubber molding process has produced more than 5,000 unique parts that are now used in industries such as oilfield, petrochemical, medical, pulp, and paper facilities.

Our Proof.

Rapid Development BOP During the Deepwater Horizon Disaster, Utex was tasked with rapidly developing a blowout preventer to deploy on the severed pipe. From commissioning to shipment, Utex was able to produce a part from scratch in three weeks, a task that normally takes two months.
