As a manufacturer of furniture, it's important to find cost-efficient ways to improve your product without breaking the bank. And one of the key ways you can achieve this goal is by using thermoplastic rubber to give your furniture a solid footing. 

Whether you manufacture office furniture, end tables, ottomans, or any other type of furniture, utilizing thermoplastic rubber can be the perfect way to set your product apart without pricing out your target clientele. Let's take a closer look at how and why thermoplastic rubber can be the ideal addition to your product and how the team at Frank Lowe can help. 

Why Is Thermoplastic Rubber Used for Furniture Feet? 

Also called Volextra, plastic bumpers, and rubber feet, thermoplastic rubber is relatively new material. It uses innovative manufacturing technology to create a flexible extrusion process. It's the result of solid plastic being permanently melted to create a bond to foam. 

This extrusion-coating process combines the admirable performance and aesthetic qualities of  solid plastic to the excellent properties of cross-linked, closed-cell polyolefin foam. A few key attributes of thermoplastic rubber include:

  • Versatile coating resin with HDPE, EVA, LLDPE, PP, LDPE, TPR, TPE, which makes it suitable for indoor as well as outdoor applications.
  • Available in a range of thicknesses, spanning from 1/32 inch Volara to 1/4 inch Volara.
  • A wide selection of variations and textures through embossing pattern options and composite options.
  • An attractive selection of embossing patterns, such as gloss, burlap, and matte.
  • It's a high impact and resistant material that works well in general industry
  • Anti-skid and anti-slip attributes that make it perfect for stabilizing furniture. 

Because of the versatility of thermoplastic rubber, the team at Frank Lowe regularly works with furniture manufacturers to create anti-skid plastic feet and anti-slip furniture bumpers.
