Custom Compounding & Mixing
Abrasion resistance, wear, bond strength, compressibility &
resiliency are all properties each important to the
performance of your rubber components. These properties are
often difficult to balance in proper proportions to achieve
the wear and performance characteristics required. J. J. Short
brings over 70 years of special purpose material design and
development experience to combine with your needs and
To meet ever-changing material needs, our staff is well
qualified and experienced in the formulation of rubber
compounds for both routine and specialty requirements. We can
mix material to your formulations or give us the environmental
service conditions your product must withstand and we'll
recommend one of our existing compounds or develop a special
compound just for you. Certain compounds can be produced in
translucent and custom colors if you desire. We work regularly
with all the elastomers from natural rubber through a broad
range of synthetics.
We mix the rubber materials we use in our production at our
own custom mixing facility. This significant capability allows
us to maintain tight control over material quality response
times and tailor material to your specifications.
We supply outside customers, as well as our own operations,
with mill slabs, calendared sheets, or extrusions for specific
processing needs. We are not limited to large production runs.
We will also readily fill your small volume orders for
prototyping and short run needs.
We have complete confidence in our ability and have the
capability to fulfill your needs such as - the type of
polymer, the physical properties, the color, the quantity, or
the quality. At J.J. Short we will attempt to satisfy the most
stringent of customer requirements.
