  1. Q: What is your turnaround time to complete a covering project?
    A: This depends on the number of pieces you need covered, the size/shape of each piece, and whether or not you need us to remove an existing covering or coating. Fortunately, we can take a look at your specific project and get you a detailed quote within 48 hours of your request. Learn more:

  2. Q: How thick of a rubber coating can you apply to a roller? How thick can you spray urethane?
    A: There is no limit to the amount of rubber that we can apply to a roller, however, there does come a point when the amount of rubber can harm the performance of the roller. For most rollers, 180-200 mils (0.180” - 0.200”) of coverage will suffice. For some applications, we have sprayed a thickness of 0.375”.

  3. Q: Do you do on-site application of your product?
    A: No, all of our coverings are applied at our facility in Sioux City, Iowa. Certain products, like the TuffTube spout lining system, are easy to ship and install on-site. For most spray urethane and covering products, the work happens here.

  4. Q: Is there a minimum order requirement?
    A: No. We pride ourselves in being a small-but-mighty business, and we’d never turn away an opportunity to help a customer. We can do both single-part custom orders for standalone equipment/facilities and large quantity orders for OEMs.

  5. Q: What information is required to get a quote?
    A: The more information you are able to provide, the more detailed a quote we can produce. We need product dimensions, the type of rubber/urethane required, and a detailed description of the environment the product is used in. When in doubt, share the details!
