our rubber can take the heat!

prototype rubber moldings

 OBJECTIVE - PROVIDE PROTOTYPE AND LOW VOLUME RUBBER MOLDINGS IN DESIRED MATERIAL!

By compression molding into inexpensive aluminum tools, we are able to produce parts in production materials in low quantities (1 to several thousand).  While there are 3D printed rubber parts that can be made faster, they typically do not equal the desired properties of our calendered rubber, and cannot be made to a Mil-Spec grade.

PROTOTYPE RUBBER MOLDING MATERIALS

 

  • High Heat-Resistant Silicone Rubber  -Easily moldable.  Used for the highest heat resistant requirements such as vacuum pickups and to cover PCB components during wave soldering.  Also used for grommets and fixturing nests.

  • Neoprene    -Strong resistance to physical failures like cuts and is resistant to damage caused by abrasion, flexing and twisting. It also does not degrade in the presence of sun, ozone or weather and features excellent adhesion to fabrics and metals.

  • Nitrile (NBR)   -Seal industry’s most widely used and economical elastomer. Excellent resistance to petroleum-based oils, fuels, water, alcohols, silicone greases, hydraulic fluids. Good balance of desirable working properties like low compression set, high abrasion resistance and high tensile strength.

  • Fluoroelastomer   -Used mainly in seals and barrier layers subjected to environments too severe for other elastomers.  Excellent chemical and heat resistance.  Good mechanical properties and compression set resistance.  Resistance to wide range of oils and solvents.
