Grey rubbRe™

Vulcana® Grey rubbRe™ was developed in response to the marine industry. While at a trade show there was a tremendous response to the material. However, our base ingredient is black car tires; which meant that all of our colors were on the darker end of the spectrum which was not ideal for a material that would be exposed to the sun all day. Without a bleaching process we will never achieve white; but we think that the light grey rubbRe provides an excellent fit!

Bonding to rubbRe™


Q. Do you want to bond your fabric to rubbRe™?

A. Every fabric has differing properties; therefore not all fabrics will be suitable for bonding to Vulcana®'s rubbRe™.

Prior to production, each fabric must be evaluated and tested for an effective "bond" to rubbRe™. Various properties of the fabric will have an impact on the result of the bond to be achieved; some more critical than others. The composition of the material along with the weight, elasticity, tensile strength (bi-directionally), thickness, finish, weft and warp will influence the results.
