What is TICOR?

TICOR: a durable, low-cost, synthetic fiber- or steel-reinforced rubber material

ticorTICOR parts and assemblies are being used in hundreds of applications where engineers require a versatile, low cost, durable rubber material that can transmit torque, absorb vibration, seal gaps against granular leakage, convey and spread materials, withstand cyclical flexing and allow for thermal expansion and contraction.

TICOR parts are ideally suited for a broad range of applications requiring high tensile strength, long flex-life and resistance to aging and abrasion. TICOR die-cut parts are produced in a variety of shapes and sizes and are found in many types of products ranging from high-volume consumer products to low-volume construction equipment.

Typical applications for TICOR die-cut rubber parts include mounting pads, isolators, couplers, baffles, hangers, deflectors, end gate seals, straw spreader blades, conveyor flight paddles, snow thrower blades and snow plow deflectors.

Engineers have learned that parts made from the TICOR material has many of the properties of rubber, plastic and polyurethane, but at a fraction of the cost.

TICOR parts are produced by a unique mechanical method of recycling tires. Each tire is classified by size, number of plies and type of reinforcing material. Both beads are removed and the two sidewalls and center tread section are separated. The three segments are then machined to the proper thickness with a close tolerance range. After inspection, the TICOR parts are die cut to their specific size and shape.
