Rubber to Metal Bonding
Industrial Rubber has the technical expertise along with comprehensive facilities for the manufacture of Rubber to Metal mouldings, Rubber to Plastic mouldings as well as Rubber and Fabric mouldings, etc.
BONDING RUBBER TO METALS AND OTHER SUBSTRATES CAN BE VERY USEFUL WHEN DESIGNING A VARIETY OF COMPONENTS WHERE BOTH THE PROPERTIES OF THE METAL AND THE RUBBER ARE REQUIRED IN A SINGLE COMPONENT
Industrial Rubber has developed processes to bond rubber to a range of metals and various other substrates during the moulding process. We are able to carry out the following processes
- Shot Blasting
- Preheating and Drying Ovens
- Spray and Hand Painting
- Grinding and Finishing
- Post Vulcanisation Bonding
- Engraving/ Etching of bonded metal surfaces
The inserts are prepared mechanically and/ or chemically depending on what the substrate is made from. They are then put into the mould as an insert and the rubber is vulcanised to the insert during the moulding of the component.
This type of product is used for a very wide range of applications including:
- Anti-Vibration Products
- Suspension Products
- Expansion Joints
