Rubber – We are a distributor/fabricator for Blair Rubber, and you can visit their website at to see some of the products that we have to work with.

Curing – We have one of the largest autoclaves in the country at 11.5′ diameter x 55′ long. The preferred method of curing is an autoclave cure at our site in Kansas City, MO. Plant steam cures, atmospheric cures, and chemical cures are also available for on-site rubber-lining projects.

Inspection – Pre-cure inspection consists of visual inspection and shadow test inspection, ensuring that all seems are properly adhered to pipe. Post cure inspections consist of a visual inspection and spark test.

Advantages – Rubber-lined pipe will last 3 to 5 times longer than alloys or hardened metals, and it will last up to 20 times as long as fiberglass. When it comes to beating corrosion, rubber-lining is second to none.

We stand behind our work! – A company doesn’t stay in business for very long without standing behind its service, and we are no exception. We have been around since 1906, and we have been rubber-lining for almost 30 years. We guarantee dependability, great adhesion and long life.
