About Rubber Molding
Rubber molding is a manufacturing process in which uncured rubber compounds are heated and cured within steel cavities i.e. molds to form usable rubber products of various geometric shapes and sizes. Typically, a vulcanizing agent such as sulfur is used to cure the rubber by forming disulfide cross-links throughout the rubber polymer matrix. The cured rubber then becomes more stable and gains improved mechanical properties. There are three primary types of rubber molding processes: injection molding, transfer molding, and compression molding. Each type of process is suitable for different applications depending on the geometric design of the rubber product as well as the rubber material choice, production rate, and other considerations. Additionally, rubber molding makes bonding of rubber to other components such as metal superior to adhesive use or other methods.
Examples of molded rubber products include mechanical mounts, seals, pedal pads, hoses, bumpers, vibration isolators, and many conjoining components found between moving parts of machinery.
Rubber Molding Advantages
- Reduced costs due to faster cure cycles and higher production rates
- Less opportunity for air entrapment
- Improved rubber-to-metal bonding
