by on May 16th, 2016 at 12:35 pm || Posted in: Product

As a famous type of jewelry, bracelets come in different kinds: charm bracelets, bangles, friendship bands, and many others. One of them, however, has gained popularity for its flexibility, simplicity, and usability. Rubber bracelets are not uncommon these days. In fact, since 1980s, they have become one of the famous accessories worn by people of different ages and genders for different purposes and occasions.

As we’ve proven firsthand, the material used to create this type of bracelet, and the wide choices of styles it gives even made it more sellable for consumers.

Rubber BraceletsRubber bracelets, also called “gel bracelets”, are elastic accessories that are commonly made of silicon. Water and heat resistant, they usually come in different dimensions.

Classic gel bracelets are typically half an inch wide and 0.1 inch thick with a circumference of around seven to eight inches. There are also silicone bracelets that are either wider, usually one inch in width, or thinner (1/4 inch) than the classic ones. Some bracelets are smaller than the typical silicone wristbands, around six inches in diameter, especially made for children that are around six to ten years old.

They may also vary in colors, prints, and styles. Aside from the usual single- and multi-colored bands, there are glow-in-the-dark silicone wristbands that are usually in green and blue tints. Swirled bands, on the other hand, mix several colors to create a pattern that gives a more appealing effect. There are also dual colored and dual layered bands in which two sides have different colors from each other.

Although there are blank silicone wristbands, texts, phrases, or clip arts are commonly found in most gel bracelets and may come in different styles. Imprinted bands, for example, contain texts that are screen-printed or applied directly to the rubber’s surface. Some have the texts embossed or debussed so that they appear more intricate than the screen-printed bracelets. Embossed wristbands contain raised lettering while debussed wristbands have the letters sunken in and may or may not be filled with colors. There are also die-cut or figured bracelets that accommodate and give emphasis to logos or clip arts. Silicone bracelets are also used for more technologically advanced accessories such as LED Digital Watch and wearable fitness trackers.

Since most of these bracelets are made of silicone rubber, they are generally resistant to extreme environments and temperatures. Even in -55 to +300 degree Celsius, silicone rubbers still maintain their useful properties, making it last for years. Aside from its durability, gel bracelets are also lightweight and washable, making it a better option for those who want long-lasting and comfortable accessories. Rubber bracelets do not pose great harm to its wearers, especially to children, as silicone, a synthetic polymer, are considered food-safe substances.

They come in different prices, ranging from US $0.15 to US $1, depending on the style, design, and type of the bracelet. However, prices are still reasonable compared to other kinds of accessories. Apart from being inexpensive, most silicone wristbands can also be easily customized depending on personal needs and wants, considering that these types of bracelets undergo easier molding process. One can personalize a wristband’s color, texts, or pattern to make it look more unique from other wearers’ bracelets.

silicone wristbandsRubber bracelets can be found and are available almost everywhere. Usually bought in bulk, they can easily be ordered online or can be bought from any accessory shops.

The growing demand for these kinds of bracelet allows growth in various jewelry manufacturers and silicone companies. Since silicone rubber is a considerable adaptable material and since large quantities of bracelets can also be produced through simpler processes, they provide essential earnings for many jewelry manufacturers.

Aside from being used as fashion accessories, rubber bracelets are effective in raising awareness about various issues or in supporting different groups or events, which was one of the reasons why these types of wristbands are also called “awareness bracelets.”

Silicon bracelets are also being studied due to its supposed effectiveness in recording one’s exposure to chemicals in air, in water and in various personal care products because of its ability to absorb organic chemicals from the surrounding, making it more popular not only for its appeal in fashion, but also for its contribution to the field of science.
