Our Profile

Monmouth Rubber & Plastics Corp.

Profile of an Innovator in Closed Cell Plastic and Rubber

For 50 years, Monmouth Rubber & Plastics Corp. has been a leader in the innovation and technology of cellular polymeric materials.

As a recognized leader and innovator of proprietary closed cell crosslinking technology and polymer blend technology, Monmouth was retained to do product improvement by a variety of companies. Some of these companies, in chronological order, are:

Chrysler Corp

– 100% EPDM, low density, closed cell sponge rubber

B.F. Goodrich, Sponge Products Div. – Shelton, CT

– Neoprene/Vinyl Nitrile Blends

Uniroyal Chemical, Ensolite Div. – Mishawaka, IN

– IV-1 IV-5 Series – Neoprene/Vinyl Nitrile Blends – Ensofoam Crosslinked EVA Blends

Plymouth Rubber, Plymouth, MA

– Crosslinked Low Density EVA Blends

Sentinel Products Corp. – Hyannis, MA

– Polyolefin Blends, all types including Metallocene Resin Crosslinked Foam

Significant Achievement: 

The world’s first 100% EPDM, low density, closed cell sponge

Durafoam C191XLDSIn 1974, Monmouth commercialized the world’s first 100% EPDM, low density, closed cell sponge. Proprietary Durafoam technology allowed Monmouth to produce C191XLDS in densities as low as to 2.0 pounds per cubic foot. One outstanding, commercially successful application for this technology was as a sealing gasket for all Chrysler tail lamps. In 1979, Monmouth was successful in having Durafoam C191XLDS introduced at Chrysler as the only approved source under MSAY 527 A, B, & C.
Durafoam C191XLDS solved a major leakage problem Chrysler had on its “K” cars. Durafoam C191XLDS, with its attributes of softness, conformity and 100% closed cell rubber structure, allowed for foolproof sealing of Chrysler’s tail lamp gaskets. Monmouth was recognized by Dupont on its literature for this significant achievement and problem solving technology.

Backed by years of technical knowledge and manufacturing expertise, Monmouth Rubber truly offers a family of materials; a world of solutions!
