Rubbers, Foams, Films
and Specialty Materials

Rubber Resources is an industrial converter and fabricator of all types of rubbers, foams, films, and papers, as well as fabrics, adhesives, corks, hook, and loop, felt and tubing.

Rubber Resource works with materials that include rubbers, foams, adhesives, films, and corks. We stock hundreds of materials in our Portland, Oregon warehouse and have access to thousands more from our vendor partners. This breadth allows us to find the best materials for our customers’ applications and helps them to create the products they need. Whether you are looking for a single gunnel guard for your fishing boat or 10,000 spacers for electronic devices, we can help!

Foams have a multitude of composition options even within each chemistry- cell structure, weight, thickness and additives all must be considered with each new application. The more we know about what you want to do with your product, the easier it is to recommend a material.

Frequently Asked

questions

How does Rubber Resource choose their material vendors?

We have learned over the years the materials that tend to work the best, and the suppliers that offer those materials at the best price with the best service. We continually reevaluate our supply chain to make sure that we are using the best materials and remaining competitive.

Can I give you materials to cut?

Yes. We have several customers that prefer to buy the materials themselves (particularly in the fabric and apparel industry) and send them to us. We can also warehouse your materials.

Do some materials have a shelf life?

Some do. We are careful to monitor those and replace old, outdated materials with fresh stock.
