Santa Fe Springs, CA – At RD Rubber Technology Corporation, we mold a variety of synthetic rubbers to meet our customer’s project and application requirements. “Butyl rubber is one such material typically used for Aerospace and Defense applications where an airtight, moisture-resistant, shock-absorbing solution is needed, stated Maria Jose Monesterio, Vice President, RD Rubber Technology Corporation. Butyl rubber is highly durable and performs well in various weather conditions over time while providing proven long-term compression set performance. It is less porous and offers good chemical resistance compared to other elastomers while maintaining sufficient elasticity to form an airtight seal which makes it an ideal choice for critical to function applications including O-rings, gaskets, and seals. Chlorobutyl offers the same benefits as butyl rubber, such as tolerance to extreme weather conditions, low moisture and gas permeability, and vibration-absorbing capabilities. In addition, chlorobutyl rubber can be vulcanized more quickly, and it is more compatible with metals and other unsaturated rubbers.”

RD Rubber Technology is a leading supplier of custom molded rubber products for Aerospace, Defense, Medical, and high technology industries that require precision molded elastomeric components. RD Rubber operates a state-of-the-art molding facility that includes ISO 14644 Class 8 cleanroom space and an extensive inspection and testing department. RD Rubber’s development team assists customers with process and manufacturing engineering and identifies the most appropriate compound for a specific application. With its chemical and mechanical rubber to metal & silicone to plastic bonding capabilities, RD Rubber can accommodate specialized design requirements and reduce the number of components in an assembly. RD Rubber also offers value-added machining, grinding, and finishing while molding any thermoset elastomer including organic rubber, synthetic rubber, fluorocarbon rubbers, fluorosilicone, and silicone types in the 10 to 90 durometer range. The RD Rubber team can make a recommendation and create custom formulations to meet application-specific performance criteria like compression set, permeation, and environmental resistances and offer a custom color match.
