  • National Apprenticeship Week 2018

    Polymax Apprenticeships Polymax Apprenticeships

    It’s national apprenticeship week! This year’s theme is aimed to help raise awareness about how apprenticeships work. We’re very proud to support the scheme and currently employ two apprentices who are an absolute integral part of our team.

    Our regular customers are probably very well acquainted with the two of them. Sydney lee studies Business Administration at Havant & Southdown’s College, she’s worked at Polymax for almost a year now. We also have Lewis Mockford who is 9 months into his Digital Marketing apprenticeship though Portsmouth Highbury College.

    To celebrate their success with us we thought we’d give them platform to speak about their experience as an apprentice and what it’s like working at Polymax HQ.

  • Unusual Uses | Rubber Cord

    Over the years we've realised our products can be used for pretty much anything. Whilst we might supply our products with a general purpose in mind, it's always fascinating to hear how our customers have used them in unpredictable ways. So to continue our unusual uses blog series, we've collected the weird and wonderful ways our customers have utilised our rubber cord.

    Fixing Primary Chain Case Oil Leaks

    Rubber cord to seal Primary Chain Case 1953 Norton 'Dominator'

    Firstly, a niche problem for vintage motorbike enthusiasts. Older motorcycle models use a primary chain that connects the engine to the transmission. Since it requires a good amount of oil lubricant, the primary chain case encloses the chain and oil. This can be problematic as the seal can become worn over time resulting in oil leakage. A review left by an anonymous customer detailed how they sealed the primary chain case on their 1953 Norton 'Dominator'. They used trail and error for the correct size and ended up fitting our Neoprene Sponge Cord 12mm Diameter. In their own words getting an oil tight seal was "No mean achievement" - Great work!
