Rubber Baseboard

A reliable source for Rubber Baseboard information and leading Rubber Baseboard Companies & Suppliers.

Baseboards made of rubber that have been molded or extruded are used to cover the joint between floors and walls. Rubber is an excellent material for baseboards since it can be more impact-resistant and scratch-resistant than wood or plastic, and if it does become damaged, it can be easily replaced. In institutional, industrial, and residential structures, rubber baseboards can be installed for solely practical reasons or to improve the visual appeal of a living or working area. Read More…

Rubber Baseboard Rubber baseboards are molded or extruded rubber products used to cover the intersection of walls and floors. Rubber is a good choice for baseboard material because it can be more resistant to impact and scratching than wood or plastic, and if it does become damaged it can be replaced inexpensively.

How Rubber Baseboards are Made

Rubber baseboards can be plain and simple or decorated with unique patterns and designs. In either scenario, they shield classroom walls from being harmed by desk leg impact. They shield factory walls from scuffs brought on by contact with moving parts or machines.

rubber baseboard

Rubber baseboards can be made from either synthetic or natural rubber, depending on the application. For baseboards that will be used in demanding environments, like factories, synthetic rubbers such as EPDM can provide better levels of impact resistance as well as other features of strength and durability. In other settings where durability and strength may not be as critical, basic baseboards can be created from reasonably-priced natural rubber goods and still function effectively.

Types of Rubber Baseboards

The different types of rubber baseboards include:

Thermoplastic Vinyl (TV)

Although it is one of the three varieties of rubber, thermoplastic vinyl (TV) is a composite material manufactured almost entirely of polyvinyl chloride (PVC). The TV material is heated, extruded, and then molded into the final product since it is malleable at high temperatures.

TV offers several advantages. It can be recycled since it can be heated and cooled repeatedly without losing quality. It is a cost-effective alternative for wall base because it is the least expensive of the three varieties of rubber. However, compared to other varieties of rubber, TV is more difficult to handle and install, and it might develop white stress lines or discoloration when shaping corners.

While TVs are more prone to obvious gouges and nicks than other types of rubber, the matte coating can help cover scuffs. TV is a good, affordable option for wall base, accessories, flooring, and stair systems in low-traffic areas (emergency stairways, secondary stairwells, and light commercial applications).

Thermoplastic Rubber (TP)

Vinyl and rubber are combined to form thermoplastic rubber (TP). TP is heated, extruded, and formed into a finished product just as TV. Additionally, it does not lose quality when heated or cooled, allowing for recycling. The wall base needs to be acclimated on-site for at least 24 hours before TP installation. Similar to TV, stress lines and discoloration may emerge while constructing corners. Additionally, it has a matte surface to help nicks and gouges blend in. The "best" option for rubber wall base is TP because it contains rubber. When money is still an issue and there is medium to medium-heavy traffic, TP should be used.

Thermoset Vulcanized Rubber (TS)

Thermoset vulcanized rubber is TS rubber. It is a rubber that includes virgin fillers and additives combined with either synthetic or natural rubber. The vulcanization of heat and pressure improves the materials' elasticity, tensile strength, hardness, and weather resistance. TS includes the most rubber of the three varieties.

One of the main distinctions between the various forms of rubber is the chemical process of vulcanization. Because it doesn't contain PVC, TS is better for the environment and could earn LEED points. The most durable rubber is Type TS, but it is also the priciest option. Because of the uniform composition of TS, nicks and gouges are less common than in TP or TV. Furthermore, TS is resistant to shrinking and stress signs.

Advantages of Rubber Baseboards

  • Durability: Rubber flooring, whether in the form of sheet or tile, endures exceptionally well in high-traffic areas over extended periods of time, making it a wise investment.
  • Comfort: Rubber's comfort underfoot is another advantage. Rubber flooring has a pleasant feel to it and is naturally non-slip. As a result, it is a safer choice when there are many people on the streets.
  • Acoustics: Rubber is quieter overall since it is a little softer than some of the other hard surface items. Rubber's ability to absorb sound is especially helpful in big, empty spaces where there can be an echoing of noise.
