How Long Will Rubber Bands Last?

Rubber bands are made from a natural material that may disintegrate over time. The proper storage of the bands is important to their longevity.

Rubber bands should be kept in an environment that is away from direct sunlight, heat and chemicals.

Natural rubber bands are not recommended for outside applications. (Speak to us about UV-Ozone resistant bands.)

Store rubber bands in their original packaging inside the box for best results.


Any unopened bags may be returned within 30 days with the agreement of Dykema Rubber Band. Please call us with your request for a refund or exchange prior to sending them back.
