Founded in 1994, Rubber-Cal is a distributor of industrial rubber products. The company provides and inventories a wide range of rubber mats, rubber flooring, sheet rubber, flexible ducting, coir doormats, pavement maintenance parts and other specialty rubber products. Our large inventory and 24-hour fulfillment of stocked products makes us a great partner to agile OEMs and retailers by reducing their need to inventory parts and raw materials. Most of our rubber goods can be purchased in small custom-cut lengths, decreasing both the cost and time of installation and onsite fabrication.
Ingrained in our basic philosophy is the mission to offer “Green” products, whenever possible, to industry and consumers alike. Natural, reclaimed and recycled rubbers are not only a practical substitute but also a far more affordable option. Firstly, by using eco-friendly materials like natural and recycled rubber, we help to reduce the presence of non-biodegradable rubber waste in the ecosystem. In the US, there are approximately 245 million tires discarded annually. Our products help reduce the presence of these tires in dumpsites. Secondly, consumers directly benefit from recycled rubber products because they are more affordable than their synthetic counterparts. This has been a distinguishing hallmark that has served Rubber-Cal well over the years. In fact, it is a point of pride for us. Products using eco-friendly recycled rubber, such as our interlocking rubber floor tiles, are very popular with consumers because they offer superior protection and durability at a competitive price.

Join Us in Celebrating Goodyear’s 125th Anniversary!
2023 marks the 125th year since the Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company was founded. The company’s founder, Frank Seiberling, named his company after Charles Goodyear, the inventor of vulcanized rubber. And the name has stuck ever since.
In 1898, Frank Seiberling opened the first Goodyear factory in Akron, Ohio, focusing mainly on manufacturing bicycle and carriage tires. In 1901, Goodyear produced its first automobile tires for Henry Ford, who was manufacturing race cars. As the automobile industry grew and rubber’s demand increased, so did the popularity of Goodyear’s tires.
With 125 impressive years under Goodyear’s belt, join us here at Rubber-Cal in celebrating this momentous occasion. Over a century of innovation, ingenuity, and effort has kept the Goodyear company at the fore of the rubber industry. Goodyear does important work in continuing to popularize, as well as develop, rubber—not just as a finished product but as a basic material, too.
Here's to Goodyear. What a ride it has been, and continues to be.
Protect Your Equipment and Your Floors!
Building a home gym? Or looking to upgrade your set-up? The first thing to look for is quality home-gym flooring. And there is no material better for the job than rubber. There are a litany of reasons for why rubber is great for flooring home-gyms. But let’s take a look at three: (1) rubber protects your home’s floors from damage; (2) rubber protects your equipment from damage; and (3) rubber dampens the vibrations emitted by gym equipment.
When placed beneath gym equipment, rubber flooring acts as a shock-absorbing barrier that redistributes the forced emitted from heavy machinery when they are in operation. This severely diminishes the chances that your fitness machines will damage your floors. Rubber is also abrasion-resistant—so if you drag heavy objects across your floors, rubber will protect your home from damage.
In the same way that rubber protects your subfloors from damage, it also protects your equipment from damage. Let’s assume that your gym is not equipped with rubber flooring. When your equipment vibrates against your floors, the normal force reflected back onto the equipment can acutely damage their outer structures, as well as inner mechanisms. This damage—while inconspicuous at first—can reveal itself once your machine breaks down for good, having sustained a large amount of damage accumulated over time. By reducing the power of your machine’s vibrations, rubber flooring—in this way—protects your machine, too.
Finally, rubber flooring minimizes the level of noise that your workouts generate, dampening the sound that your machines, barbells, and dumbbells create when they hit your floors. In home gyms in both private residences and apartment buildings, rubber is the ideal material for keeping your workouts from becoming ear sores for you, your neighbors, and your loved ones.
Affectionate Doormats for the Month of Valentine’s Day
When flowers do not feel like enough, you need a special gift that takes your loving gesture to the next level. One of the best things to get is a Valentine’s-Day-themed doormat. The artwork depicted on these doormats express the affection that words alone cannot capture. They show your significant other just how much you really care. After all, a picture is worth a thousand words.
Doormats such as our “Red Hearts” and “Tulip Garden” doormats are beautifully stenciled with Valentine’s-Day imagery that evokes feelings of love, fondness, and intimacy. Paired with a bouquet of flowers, a doormat like this can make your Valentine’s-Day gesture unique and heartfelt—a step above the rest.
These doormats are made of coir, a material derived from the husks of coconuts. This makes these mats environmentally-friendly products, keeping our planet healthy while you keep your loved one’s home clean. Take a moment to peruse our generous selection of doormats. Even if the doormat you choose is not outwardly affectionate, an inside joke or thoughtful artwork—themselves—can be romantic gifts. After all, it all depends on your relationship with that special someone. Valentine’s Day is not limited to hearts and flowers. Sometimes, a simple welcome can express infinitely deeper meaning.
