How mouldings are made - a basic guide

Rubber has to be prepared before it is used for moulding -

It can be milled or extruded and cut into accurate sizes and weighed to suit the item being made. For injection moulding, the rubber is supplied in continuous strip form.

After loading the moulding tool with the required amount of rubber, putting it under pressure at the correct  temperature and time, the moulding is then removed from the (hot) tool.  (This shows compression moulding method)

After the components have cooled, they need to be de-flashed to remove all the excess rubber

This can be done either by hand (using scissors) or cryogenically using a special tumbler where the components are frozen and rotated.
