Our customer needed to develop a transit chair armrest for a piece of equipment used to transport persons with disabilities. Touched by multiple hands in the course of its use, the armrests had to be soft and comfortable, yet easily sanitized.
Midwest Rubber developed a specialized dip coating process to hermetically seal the armrests and other exposed areas of the equipment. Our process created a non-porous, yet soft surface. The resulting product was soft, comfortable, and practical, meeting our customer’s very specific manufacturing needs.
