Latest Question and Answers

Hi, I'm looking to buy some 7 1/2" x 1/8" rubber bands like the ones my hospital used to use to bundle charts. I'd rather pay a little more for longevity. I assume longer life is associated with higher rubber content and size. Rubber content doesn't always seem to be listed. I have noticed that in this size manufacturers pack 200 - 300 bands per pound. Can I assume that the bands in the 200 packs last longer? I have the sense that the "pale crepe" ones are on the better end of the spectrum yet there are 300 per pound. What gives please??? Thanks, Gary
asked by gary jenkins on April 30, 2017

The Pale Crepe bands are the most expensive rubber bands due to their extremely high rubber content. In fact, they have the highest rubber content of all rubber bands. Rubber is relatively light. While there may be more bands per package and a higher band count of Pale Crepe bands, rubber, however, doesn't correlate to longevity. Rubber has better elasticity and has better retention of its original size and shape than other bands. Having said that, it is sensitive to UV light is subject to breakage and becoming brittle. The higher rubber content of Pale Crepe rubber bands makes them extremely soft. They are recommended for people with arthritis or Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. They have a softer stretch than other rubber bands and are the most ergonomically friendly rubber band. If you're looking for band built for longevity, we recommend a non latex option, the Extreme EPDM (Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer) Rubber Bands, X-treme File Bands, 117B, 7 x 1/8, Black (Item ALL02004). The synthetic rubber makes the bands resilient to heat, UV, ozone, weather, and age, making them an ideal choice for a wide range of applications, from home to office to recreational uses.

what would be the best rubber band size to go around a standard file folder. We are having issues with the file folders curling in when we put the rubber bands around them. we tried # 18 and #19 and neither seems to work well.
asked by Scott on June 4, 2015

117b rubber bands, such as the ALL00700 Big Bands by Alliance, are the best size for your needs. 117b bands are 7" x 1/8" and will stretch to fit around your folders without popping.

117B Rubber Bands, such as Alliance® X-treme™ File Bands are the best choice for your binding file folders. 117B bands are 7" long flat length, and 1/8 of an inch wide.

How big will the Universal size 62 expand to? I want to know if I put these size rubber bands around a rock, what size rock it would cover?
asked by Steve on March 6, 2015

Depends on the size of the rock!

Size 62 rubber bands are 2.5" long. The Universal brand bands have an elongation factor of 625%. So, if we do the math, 2.5 x 6.25, we see the size 62 rubber bands can stretch to 15.625 inches.

Hi, I need a 14 inch rubber band.
asked by Cesar on April 23, 2014

Hi Cesar,

Thank you for your question about Universal Rubber Bands. 

Standard rubber bands are sized by the flat length, or the length of the band from end to end when lying flat. 

Rubber Band Flat Length

So, if you need a band with a total circumference of 14", you'll need 7" bands, the longest standard length available. Universal offers 7" bands in two sizes:

However, if you need a non-standard, oversized rubber band with a 14" flat length and 28" overall circumference, we offer Alliance® SuperSize Rubber Bands. This color-coded variety pack includes eight green 14" bands. 

You can learn more about rubber band styles and sizes in our rubber band buying guide

Hope this answers your question!

Best,
Frankye
