Nitrile and/or Rubber Cord Question


#1

I have not ordered Rio Grande’s version of this cord–cheaper from a
rubber supply house. All I know is my personal experience and that
is that I have had no problems myself or complaints from my
customers. I found out about the cord from a glass artist I used to
know. She used them to string murini canes long, twisted murini
canes into necklaces. She used them for years and found them to be
more durable than leather.

    The Rio rubber is uncoated and may rub off black on someone's
neck with high acid in their system.  I recommend ordering the
Buno-O from http://marcorubber.com in continuous feet and attaching
your own end caps. Their rubber is coated and I've used it for
years with not one complaint regarding breakage or rubbing off a
black residue.  Use JB Weld epoxy for attaching the endcaps. Hope
this helps.  Reba. 

Dear Reba: I ordered some of the rubber cord from Marco but in
talking to him, he said it’s not coated 'n didn’t know what I was
talking about? Will it leave a black mark on the neck? Please give
me some more info on how u use it.

Hi Audie, When I ordered the cord from Marco, they specified the cord
was coated. In fact, I see a big difference when cleaning off the
cording with “Simple Green” before epoxying the ends. The Rio cord
(uncoated) will leave obvious black residue on the towel and Marco’s
cord has some coloring that I see as dirt from warehousing. I’m more
comfortable and very happy using the Marco rubber. I use it for
women’s and men’s necklaces.

Reba.

Andrea, Could you tell us what source you are using for the nitirle?
And secondly how you terminate the ends into a clasp or other
finding? Tom

Tom,

I was wondering the same thing and came across this site:

http://www.foukasap.gr/

It is a Greek supplier. They sell rubber cording and also finished
rubber bracelets and necklaces. They also sell flat as well as round
rubber cord black and other colors.

Hope this helps.
