List of Rubbers
Rubbers are kinds of polymers that happen to be elastic (stretchy) at use temperatures. Thus out of the more than 100 polymers that Polycrafters can make, some of them (listed below) happen to be rubbers based on their materials properties. This page explains the kinds of rubbers that Polycrafters can make and why they are useful. In general rubbers can be used in the injection molder, the extruder and the crafting table to create a host of Polycraft items with exciting new and old functionalities.
|Rubber||Abbreviation||Raw Material||Tech Level||Rating (Pressure, Toughness)|

|Extreme Rubber||PU||Bag (PolyUrethane Pellets)||8||Extreme|
This page lists several (non-comprehensive) examples of rubber products. Each specific Polycraft Item page will detail the specifics. This page is meant as a guide to processing rubbers and in many cases, different types of rubbers or rubber products can be substituted into the recipes.
- A Grip (Natural Rubber) as the name implies, is only made with PolyIsoPrene Pellets. Grips are injection molded and can be used to improve existing Minecraft tools in a crafting table in a shapeless manner. See the list of gripped tools for more details.
Running shoes (walker, jogger, and runner versions) are made from all classes of rubbers. Most shoes can be directly injection molded with the correct bags of pellets. Extreme rubbers take a few extra processing steps. First Polycrafters must injection mold different components of the shoes (insoles, midsoles and outsoles) from specific rubbers and combine them with engineering thermoplastics on the crafting table.
- Scuba Fins (all classes)
- Scuba Mask (all classes) - Note: Masks with Lights must be subsequently crafted
- Gaskets (all classes)
- Life Preserver (NR, SBR, EVA)
Hoses, Fibers, Tethers and Cords
- Hose (all classes)
- Fibers, Tethers and Cords (limited implementation as of version 1.1.2)
- Rubber Armor of all kinds following standard crafting recipes with rubber pellets
