You probably already know when and how miniature rubber tubing is used. Otherwise, you wouldn’t be looking to purchase it. Naturally, before you make the final decision and place your order, you need to understand the size you need. First of all, you should do some measuring and calculations. Then, you should explore our website to find it in our offer. When going through this aspect, make sure to include both the inner and outer diameter of the miniature rubber tubing as well as the overall thickness.
Now, did you ever think about the production process of this item? What about different types of rubber that are used? When it comes to the former, the first step includes material preparation. Now, depending on the material used, this step can differ. For example, if the miniature rubber tubing is made of latex, the first step is to extract latex from the plant and then combine it with other substances that will give it its essential properties. On the other hand, if the item is made of synthetic rubber, this step is much simpler since the manufacturer creates its own material by mixing different substances.
The next stage of the manufacturing process is called extrusion. It is when the material is molded and adjusted to meet certain requirements. Finally, manufacturers apply several types of coats and finishes during the last stage to boost the product’s properties. Even though this is the last step, the truth is that it can take quite a while since not only is the material treated, but this stage also includes cutting, drilling, labeling, and other similar tasks. In addition, when it comes to this final stage, manufacturers decide on the tasks that need to be performed based on the intended use of the miniature rubber tubing. They have to consider the temperature resistance, pressure levels, moisture, and so on.
