Metric RIBtype can be made in the same materials as our US Standard RIBtype can, however, Metric RIBtype is most commonly made using the following materials:
• Gray natural rubber
• Black, oil-and-acid resistant 50-buna
• Hard, black oil-and-acid resistant 90-buna
• Heat-resistant silicone
Silicone and hard buna Metric RIBtype are popular choices for use in hot quick coders.
RIBtype ribbed rubber type is precision manufactured to a nominal thickness of .216" (+/- .003"). We guarantee it! We also guarantee the alignment of our type will meet the same exacting tolerances. For best results, replace worn type or other brands whose thickness and tolerance may vary. For best holding power and a perfect fit, use precision molded Metric RIBtype® rib-base sheets.
