What can I expect when working with you?

Once we have discussed your requirements, we will formulate a material to meet your needs. This will often require testing in our laboratories to confirm key physical properties and chemical compatibility. We will then produce prototype parts for evaluation before taking your product to production.

What is your lead time on products?

TRP Polymer Solutions can deliver prototypes and full-scale production parts to strict deadlines. We can supply to quick lead-times as short as 48 hours for specialist ‘O’ rings and seven days where new tooling is required.

Can you deliver high volume products?

Yes. We provide custom rubber moulded solutions ranging from one-off parts to high volume bespoke parts. We supply to the nuclear, medical, pharmaceutical, oil and gas, chemical processing and transportation, and motor sport industries – including Formula One.

Can you provide samples?

Yes. We can provide samples on request. Please contact us on 01432 268899 or email us at to order a sample today.

Do you ship outside the UK?

Yes. We supply to North America, Central and South America, Europe, Africa, the Middle East, Southern Asia, Asia Pacific and Australasia. Contact our sales team for more information about our shipping capabilities.

Do you have a catalogue?

No. We don’t currently have a catalogue but we do work extremely hard to keep our website updated with all our latest products and services. If you can’t find what you’re looking for there, please contact us to discuss your requirements directly with one of our technical experts.

Can you make my parts even if I don’t have drawings?

Yes. We can either work to existing CAD files or we can work closely with you to produce a conceptual design based on your functional requirements. We can also reverse-engineer samples if necessary.

How do you select polymer materials?

When selecting polymer materials, our primary concerns are the environment, service conditions and temperature requirements of your application. We can then select a material with appropriate physical properties, including hardness, tensile strength, tear strength and elongation.

Do your products offer value for money?

Cost is always a factor in the development of any product. At TRP Polymer Solutions, we always strive to provide the most cost-effective option available. Materials that require a greater upfront outlay can often deliver improved service life, reduced maintenance requirements and better return on investment in the long term.

Are your materials certified?

Certain applications require certified materials. For example, FDA for food application, USP class VI for medical uses and Norsok M710 approved materials demonstrating RGD resistance for oil and gas applications. TRP Polymer Solutions provides fully certified materials that adhere to all the major international standards.

Why should I choose TRP Polymer Solutions?

TRP Polymer Solutions delivers proven excellence in material development, particularly for use in aggressive chemical environments and extreme temperatures. We can also respond quickly to your requirements. Speak to one of our technical advisors today by calling 01432 268899 or email us directly at
