Manufacturing For The Construction Industry

At 2,717 ft. tall, the Burj Kalifa in Dubai is the tallest building in the world. While in US locations across the country, developers in the construction industry are building “Tiny Home” communities that help reduce carbon footprints and allow for more sustainable construction while still providing an attractive and functional living space.

Projects within the architectural, engineering and construction industries often vary so much in scale, scope, and cost that it’s often hard to see them as part of the same industry. But the requirements of each project always come back to the critical point required for each construction project to succeed – quality materials.

Our knowledge and manufacturing capabilities not only mean strict adherence to design specifications provided by architects and engineers to supply the correct materials as requested.

We maintain quality systems such as: AS9100, ITAR and ISO 9001:2008. And our team of experts can provide comprehensive quality measures, backed by multiple certifications, to ensure compliance with all specified requirements.

Manufacturing Experience

And with a commitment to continuous improvement and lean manufacturing, we can drive that manufacturing experience directly into superior quality for your part.

We also understand the value of time and the cost of delays to a project that can result from a missed deadline. As a result, we strive to make our manufacturing process as transparent as possible with clear lead times to keep you on schedule.

Materials

It All Starts with Materials

At Vip Rubber and Plastic, we have the experience to manufacture and supply a wide range of construction and building projects. Some examples of applications include:

  • Heavy Constructions – We can supply important components for heavy construction projects such as water stops, expansion joints, and bridge pads.
  • Architectural – We supply materials for architectural projects for both storefront and curtainwall.
    • Our storefront materials, usually PVC, is used for projects three stories or less and shore hardness of 75 or greater.
    • For curtainwall we supply several materials including vulcanized rubber, silicone rubber or TPV depending on the engineered system used and specified by the consulting engineer.
      • For vulcanized rubber, we use ASTM-C-864 (Neoprene) and Type 2 (EPDM) as well as ASTM-C-509 sponge gaskets.
      • For compression resistance, we have available ASTM-C-1115 Type C for Silicone Rubber.

Manufactured parts for these applications include spacer blocks, push-in backups, roll-in gaskets, setting blocks, anti-walk blocks and shims, all available in various types and sizes.

For unique projects, we can assist with the development of custom compounds required for specific characteristics or performance ranges. And additional materials such as vinyl, Santoprene®, and EPDM are also used in many of our architectural projects.
