I'm looking for some 3/8 Rubber Cord.

something like this...
http://www.grainger.com/Grainger/Rubber-Cord-Stock-6VFE2?cm_sp=IO-_-PCRT-_-BTM_CTB05346605&cm_vc=A2CBBZ8

It has to be able to handle at least 150C in temperature as I'm using it to place into acrylic tubing which I'm heating up (it bends about 80C )

I'm doing this..

I have the heatgun and the tubing and fittings but if I try and bend  it without the rubber (silicone cord) it just starts to crinkle

Thanks

Hey, have you listed a price, location and how much shipping would be to other parts of New Zealand? Also if you are asking for a PM make sure your Privacy settings allow your account to receive PM otherwise people can't contact you.

/me thinks PR needs better intelligence :-)

He should check if PM is set correctly

and I put WTB so the price,location and shipping is irrelevant .

You might be able to get this from a window manufacturer, I seem to recall us using this for seals on special doors/windows...(worked summers in the family business as a student)?

Examples would be Fisher or Nebulite or Rylock Aluminium franchises.

Hth,

If you can't find a short piece of the right stuff then try bungy cord from Bunnings, just remove the material that covers it. You can also try RS Components - expensive but they have a fair range of engineering materials that you can purchase in small quantity.




You can never have enough Volvos!

O ring manufacturers have that stuff by the meter in the smaller sizes when I needed to get a specific long o ring they just got some and joined it up.
