Santa Fe Springs, CA – RD Rubber Technology Corporation is pleased to announce recent investments in support of rubber to metal insert overmolding to increase production capacity and strengthen precision manufacturing capabilities. “Rubber to metal insert overmolding, also commonly referred to as rubber to metal bonding, is a process by which rubber is bonded and molded over a metal substrate and utilizes a mechanical or chemical bonding technique or a combination of both techniques, stated Maria Jose Monesterio, Vice President, RD Rubber Technology Corporation. The rubber overmolding process delivers clear benefits to customers which include maintaining seal and assembly alignment, reducing the number of components needed for an assembly, and improved durability and extension of a product’s lifespan.
