Manufacturing Lead Times

Lead Times Updated Vip Rubber and Plastic Company


What are your estimated lead times for Rubber Extrusion?


NEW ORDERS are typically produced in five weeks. During this time, your new die is being built, material is ordered, and your custom part is being created. At the end of this period, we will have a first article for you to approve. Once you have reviewed and approved the part, we can move into production and make the remainder of your order, which will typically take about three weeks. If the part requires any additional processes such as PSA, pole curing, splicing, forming, or extensive quality requirements, extra time may need to be added, and can be determined at the time of quoting.


REPEAT ORDERS can typically be completed in four weeks. If the part requires any additional processes such as PSA, pole curing, splicing, forming, or extensive quality requirements, extra time may need to be added, and can be determined at the time of re-quoting.


TUBING – CORD STOCK – SOLID ROD does not require a first article. New and repeat orders will take approximately three weeks, however time will need to be added if pole curing is needed.


IMPORTANT: Lead times are for parts to be shipped from our facility, and not to arrive at your facility, please add shipping time via your chosen method to these estimates.

What are your estimated lead times for Molded Rubber?


NEW PARTS will require a brand new mold, and depending on the complexity of the part, this can take several weeks, so the estimated lead time will be determined at the time of quoting. Molded parts require more time than extruded or calendered parts due to the intricate nature of the process, so please allow ample time when considering a mold job. We pride ourselves on producing excellent products, and will never send out parts that do not meet our customer’s requirements. Once the mold has been built and a first article has been approved, parts can typically be produced in three weeks. Orders requiring additional processes, such as PSA, inserts, splice, or extensive quality requirements, may require extra time and will be determined upon quoting.


REPEAT ORDERS can typically be completed in four weeks. For additional processes, such as PSA, splice, or extensive quality requirements, extra time may need to be added, and will be determined at the time of re-quoting.
