Bring to Market “Living Brands” That Evolve with our Client’s Changing Demands
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 Business from Slip and Fall Accidents!
Many industries rely on day-to-day operations that deal with slippery conditions. For example, commercial kitchens are places where employees are constantly on their feet and are consistently working with water and oils. Other places, such as warehouses, are susceptible to moisture, which can leak onto busy walkways and cause catastrophic accidents. Employees are hurt. And business-owners must bear the brunt of the financial burden. Liability lawsuits, employee time off, and a damaged reputation are the main consequences that could potentially harm a business, should one slip and fall accident should occur on its premises.
This is why slip-resistant flooring is key. Anti-slip flooring minimizes the chances that someone will slip and fall while traversing a slippery surface. Our slip-resistant flooring, for the most part, is made of rubber. Rubber is the best choice for anti-slip applications because of rubber’s naturally high coefficient of friction—a rating which reflects the fact that rubber inherently enhances traction. Combined with rubber’s natural water-resistance, you will certainly see significantly increased amounts of slip resistance wherever you install rubber floors, even when these areas are wet!
Even for residential applications, slip-resistant flooring has many benefits. Areas such as basements and patios are regularly exposed to moisture, and thus, they can quickly become hazardous areas without the right flooring in place. Therefore, even if you do not own a business, there are many potential applications for which slip-resistant flooring is incredibly useful!
Playground Surfacing for Homes and Facilities
If you are looking to build a playground, the first thing to consider is high-quality playground surfacing. Playgrounds are places where kids are constantly running and jumping around, putting themselves at risk of slip-and-fall accidents and other kinds of play-related injuries. While we cannot stop children from having fun, we can minimize the dangers posed by their activities. Thick, rubber playground surfacing is one of the best ways to protect children from harm while ensuring that they can still be kids.
If you own a childcare facility or any other type of place that cares for children, certainly consider installing rubber playground surfaces under your existing play areas. For example, our “Eco-Safety 3-inch” playground tiles are built to protect children from the impacts of slips and falls. They also meet the 7-feet fall-test requirement that most legal bodies mandate. Their rubber compositions make them highly resistant to moisture and UV-rays, and they greatly enhance traction (even when soaked!).
Additionally, we design our rubber playground tiles to be highly DIY-friendly. They come pre-built with simple, reliable interlocking mechanisms that keep the tiles tightly attached and emplaced. We strongly believe that you should not have to incur additional costs after you have purchased flooring—which is why, for the most part, our products can be installed without any technical expertise. Their straightforward designs and ease of maintenance make these playground mats perfect for anyone looking to build or upgrade a playground.
