Ultra-High MW EPDM as a Replacement for NR

Natural Rubber (NR) is usually the material of choice in vibration and noise damping applications due to their excellence in strength and resilience. However, technological strides have been leading to ever smaller equipment and compartments, therefore decreasing the available airflow for components. This has led to rising temperatures under the hood, exposing the limited stability […]

Rubber Engineering: Resilience & Hysteresis

Definitions Resilience is the percent of energy required for a deformed pieces of rubber to rebound back to its original shape after a deformation. Hysteresis is the percent of energy loss per each deformation. Hysteresis results from friction happening inside the rubber which creates heat build-up. The heat build-up in the rubber is measured as […]

Why Custom Molding Works Well in Medical Devices

Custom rubber molding is the best choice for medical devices for a number of reasons. Medical device developers can define the most appropriate flexibility, fit, appearance, chemical resistance, and other features for their product. Custom rubber molding for medical devices would be able to give the highest quality product that can perform better, be more […]

Rubber Molding for Medical Devices

Rubber molding is used to make almost endless types of items such as shoes, football gear, car parts, etc. It is eye-opening how nearly everything we use contains some type of rubber component. Natural rubber can be harvested then processed into usable and versatile rubber; however, natural rubber contains proteins which may cause sensitivity in […]

Rubber Grommets for Hoses, Wiring, and Cabling

Hoses, tubes, and pipes can be vulnerable to damage by repeated flexing or friction, exposure to the environment, and contamination by foreign materials. Damage to hoses, tubes, and pipes can certainly lead to safety issues as well. Aside from abrasions, grommets are also used in applications where hoses, wiring, and cables need insulation, vibration protection, […]

Tight Tolerance for High Quality Molded Products

Perhaps you’ve heard high quality product should have “tight tolerance,” but do you really know what level of tolerance is suitable for your product? Depending on the end use of the product, tight tolerances may or may not be necessary for the product. Most consumer type products do not require more than the standard tolerance, […]

Origins of the Rubber Molding Machine

The modern rubber molding machine was actually adopted from the plastic molding process known as injection molding. Injection molding is a manufacturing process to make molded products by injecting a heated raw material into a mold cavity in which it is cooled and hardened into the mold shape. This system of manufacturing is still being […]

Get Involved with the Rubber Industry

In order to find the perfect supplier partner for your rubber products, the first step is to understand what kind of rubber products and industry you are looking to enter. The second step is to look for a supplier who has the experience and service quality to match what you are looking for. Knowing the […]

Benefits of Custom Rubber Molding

Rubber has become an indispensable material for many of our modern products, machinery, and even infrastructure. From the tires of our cars and seals on pipes to the anti-vibration pads on heavy machinery, rubber can be found everywhere. For companies using these products, you might consider custom rubber molding to get the most out of […]

Custom Rubber & Plastic Grommets

Finding a manufacturer that will supply your every need is not always an easy task. Sometimes you might find that certain companies will not make the product exactly as requested. This article will give you a basic introduction about grommets and whether custom grommets are right for you. Grommets are usually made of rubber, but […]
