Last month, Siftex reported that worldwide market conditions were negatively impacting the supply of rubber raw materials. Many rubber compound ingredients are in short supply thereby causing production delays for molded rubber products, seamless rubber tubing, and rubber-coated fabrics.
At that time, we expected this supply-chain interruption to begin to resolve by early May. Unfortunately, that is not the case. Siftex has just been notified by the supplier of rubber-coated nylon fabric used in many popular Siftsox products that their supply disruption is now expected to continue into August. Until supply is restored, Siftex stocks several alternatives to the white rubber-coated nylon fabric Siftsox.
Siftex understands the challenges you face to keep production running. That’s one key reason Siftex offers the largest selection of flexible connector materials, styles and designs to fit your needs. We are ready to supply you with sample flex connectors using alternative fabrics and materials. Our goal is to minimize any disruption to your operations. Let’s take action now, plan ahead, and work together to keep you better connected.
Please contact Siftex today by booking a meeting with your sales representative or contacting us by phone at 860.289.8779 to review your process conditions and identify which rubber tubing, corrugated sleeve, or rubber-coated fabric alternatives will work best for your application.
