What We Do

Blair Rubber Co. manufacturers rubber lining systems that protect storage and transport vessels from chemical attack, enabling long-lasting spill-free storage. In so doing, we protect:

  • Customers’ chemical assets from loss
  • Customers’ storage assets from damage
  • Customers’ workers from danger
  • The environment from exposure

Who We Are

Since 1981, Blair Rubber Co. has been dedicated to manufacturing and improving one product, corrosion-resistant rubber liners. This focus has enabled us to develop an unparalleled knowledge base of chemicals, rubber lining formulation for containment and a successful rubber lining installation process.

Our products are designed and produced in the USA. In fact, we are the only company that both, mixes its own rubber compounds and manufactures its rubber linings in its own factory. This empowers us with all the benefits of production control – quality, flexibility, and speed.
