Standard Rubber Bands
Standard rubber bands refer to the regular
rubber bands used for holding the day-to-day things like office supplies,
newspaper bundle etc. Such rubber bands are available in a variety of sizes,
volume and colors. The elasticity varies from wrapping a thing as small as
toothbrush to as big as a large bowl.

Industrial Rubber Bands as the name
suggests are large, thick bands used for various industrial jobs. These are
formed by heavy-duty rubber materials making them useful for the rough and
tough industrial purposes. These can stretch two to three times more than
their resting lengths. Though industrial rubber bands are available in a
variety of sizes but these can also be custom-ordered to meet particular
size requirements of a company.
Latex-Free Rubber Bands

bands made without the use of latex. Latex or natural rubber is notorious
for skin allergies and other complications hence, latex free rubber bands
remain quite in demand. Despite of the absence of natural rubber, these
synthetic rubber bands have excellent strength and stretch. Latex-free
rubber bands are most often used in medical, laboratory and educational
Produce Rubber Bands
are the ones which are used to hold large bunches of produce
like celery, asparagus etc. Though the quality standard is not that high and
moreover, they stretch lesser than the regular rubber bands.

formulated rubber bands called high-temperature rubber bands to withstand
the high temperature settings and UV rays. UV rays and heat are two elements
which regular rubber bands cannot bear hence, high-temperature rubber bands
are perfect for hot environments.
