Rubber extrusion make a wide range of shapes and products that are invaluable in everyday home life, such as rubber trim, weather-stripping, extruded rubber seals, rubber floor matting, rubber grommets, connectors, bumpers and more. In general, rubber extrusions are valued as sealants and gaskets because they offer such excellent flexibility, impermeability and resilience. They even make up the eraser on the end of a pencil. Outside of the home, rubber extrusions are used in cars, on bicycles, on space shuttles and on submarines. In warehouses and manufacturing facilities, rubber rollers, sheets and rods absorb the noise and vibration caused by moving machinery.
Rubber extrusion allows for high levels of customizability and yields products with superior uniformity and strength, it is the preferred rubber processing method of most manufacturers.
Vulcanising of Rubber extrusion
Whilst most rubbers can be joined using a comprehensive range of modern adhesives, the most successful method of joining two pieces of cured rubber together permanently is by hot vulcanising. This process can offer virtual equivalence in strength, flexibility and resistance to product or atmospheric attack and maintain the clean lines of an endless moulded product.This process is normally utilised for manufacturing products that are impractical to mould in one piece, offering significant savings in tool charges with quicker deliveries. Virtually any shape, hardness or rubber type can be joined.
