Material Overview

Application and ambient conditions are important for the selection of the right suction cup and the appropriate material. Abrasion resistance, oil resistance and food safety are often required specifications of a suction cup. These requirements can be met by selecting the appropriate material.

Schmalz develops its suction cup materials in-house with new materials being developed, tested and optimized in our own Plastics Competence Center. To help you quickly find your suction cups for the proper use and environmental condition please visit the tab “Vacuum Suction Cups” and check out the selection aid, which is sorted according to specific materials and application areas. This gives you a quick and simple overview.
