Northern Rubber

Hainsworth is proud to present the premium brand for rubber table cushions – Northern Rubber by Hainsworth. With an extensive history, dating back to the original vulcanisation/curing process, Northern Rubber by Hainsworth cushions have provided an outstanding quality which players and professionals alike, have chosen for over a hundred and fifty years.

Northern Rubber cushions use only the best hand-tapped Malaysian rubber, from a natural and refined formula specifically designed for its rebound ability. Northern Rubber keeps 7,000 different formulas and ensures the rubber matches each and every specification set.

Northern Rubber developed the current formula in association with the World Professional Snooker Association. Hainsworth’s innovation and testing laboratory ensures that the rubber is always performing, with the latest O-Zone resistant materials. The rubber does not seep out vital ingredients which result in the cracking and deadening of the rubber, caused by O-zone degradation.

Unlike other manufacturers, Northern Rubber by Hainsworth is vulcanised/cured separately to the extrusion process, each set of rubber being put into its own mould for curing. This controlled method ensures the shape and density of the rubber, maintaining a perfect rebound every time with no air pockets.
