What’s keeping more companies from buying the right rubber products? Is it because they don’t have the information that they need to make informed decisions? Or is it because what they think they know isn’t always the case? There are also times when businesses don’t know what they don’t know. Put another way, there are costs and risks that some companies haven’t considered yet.

If you buy small-to-medium volumes of rubber products, you might be a fit for Elasto Proxy. Rubber parts like O-rigs are commodity buys, but we’re not a commodity company. Instead, we specialize in custom fabricated products and offer value-added services. So, if you’re looking for the right rubber products, make sure you’re not missing out because of the wrong reasons. There are four.

  • Budget
  • Trust
  • Need
  • Urgency  

Let’s take a look at each one.


Do you think Elasto Proxy is too expensive? Every project has a budget, and the right rubber products can’t cause major cost overruns. But would you be willing to pay 15% or even 20% more if the added value you receive reduces your operational costs? When you work with Elasto Proxy, we take the time to understand your processes so that we can find ways to save you time and money.

For example, let’s say you install door gaskets with pressure-sensitive adhesive (PSA) tape. Your operators can cut tape on the assembly line, or you can pre-cut tape from Elasto Proxy. If using our pre-cut tape saved you five minutes per door, how much would you save across all of the door gaskets that you install over the course of a year? And would you save on materials because of fewer mis-cuts?


Are you hesitant to work with us because you’ve never heard of Elasto Proxy? Our Canadian company was founded in 1989 and is family-owned and operated. Today, we’re ISO 9001:2015 and AS9100 Rev. D certified. As a registered member of Canada’s Controlled Goods Program (CGP), we meet tough requirements for record keeping, training programs, security briefings, and inspections. 

Still unconvinced? Elasto Proxy supplies General Dynamics, Textron, Tesla, Volvo Group, and Nova Bus – just to name a few well-known companies. But what about you? What if we offer you a risk-free trial like we did for a major manufacturer of heavy equipment? The OEM gave us two months of gasket production, and we agreed to give them credit if we didn’t save them money.


Not sure we have what you need? Elasto Proxy is both a distributor and a fabricator. So, whether you need coils of rubber, sheet materials, pre-cut lengths, or finished products like custom gaskets or acoustic insulation, we’ll take care of you. If you’re looking for rubber coils, we can ship you quantities as small as 10,000 feet. If you need finished products, we can add value with kitting and assembly packaging.     

But you have business needs as well. Concerned about cash flow? What about parts availability? Order everything you need for a year and then have Elasto Proxy release quantities according to your sales forecast. We won’t bill you until we ship it, and you’ll like the on-time deliveries. With the quality that you’ll get from us, you can also cut repair costs and say goodbye to reworking rubber gaskets.  

Urgency and the Right Rubber Products

Do you think the problems we can solve aren’t that important to you right now? We understand that you’re busy, but what we’re asking for is 10 minutes of your time. And those 10 minutes could save you a lot more time (and money) in the future. If that’s sounds like the Geico TV commercial for car insurance, that’s OK. Maybe that advertisement sticks with you because it makes sense.

At your facility, what’s the per hour cost of a work stoppage on your assembly line? If you don’t have or can’t get the right rubber products, could you experience something like what the automotive industry is going through with the chip shortage? Vehicles are largely assembled, but they’re missing parts. That’s raising the amount of work-in-process – and prices keep rising, too.

Don’t let the wrong reasons keep you from getting the right rubber products. Talk to Elasto Proxy.
