molds and bonds

Rubber material

We offer our rubber products in a variety of forms that fit many different classifications. The elastomer will commonly follow an ASTM D2000 specification to meet temperature, strength, resistance and/or other criteria. Commonly used materials in this category include neoprene (CR), Ethylenepropylenediene rubber (EPDM), Nitrile butadiene rubber (NBR)and many others.

Rubber molding

Our injection and compression molding technologies are able to meet tight tolerances as well as other demanding requirements. All projects are reviewed to most efficiently utilize the amount of material space, and time at hand. These methods are flexible and are designed to meet the demands of high volume production. Compression molding produces rubber parts by first heating a mold of the target shape, then forcing rubber into the mold at high pressure. This process is better for high volume production but is more lax in terms of tolerances.Injection molding forces pre-heated rubber into a mold. The rubber is then allowed to cure. Injection molding will allow for a wider variety of parts, ranging from small and delicate designs to larger and bulkier parts.

Rubber/metal bonding

Our metal and rubber bonded products most notably provide vibration isolation. Practical applications include engine mounts, but they are not limited to only those items. The rubber and metal are bonded with special adhesive to ensure there will not be any separation. Often, the bond strength of the adhesive is higher than then strength of the rubber material.
