Custom rubber products provide numerous advantages in a wide variety of applications.
One of the primary advantages of using custom-made rubber products is their exceptional durability and longevity. They are a reliable choice for a wide range of applications due to their resilience in harsh environments and extreme temperatures (-100 °C to 310 °C). Rubber outperforms other materials in durability and sealing performance and can withstand prolonged periods of applied pressure.
Custom rubber products are flexible in design and thus are well suited to customize to meet desired requirements. They can be designed to be more rigid or flexible using specialized compounds formulated for those specific applications. Therefore, the ability to adjust flexibility in a rubber compound mix is an important factor in product design and material selection.
Specialized applications may require custom-engineered rubber compounds. Custom rubber molders produce products utilizing elastomeric material with targeted properties to meet the critical-to-function requirements of demanding applications.
These rubber compounds are manufactured utilizing methods such as compression molding, transfer molding, injection, and liquid injection molding.
Custom rubber products have exceptional properties that make them a reliable choice for a wide range of applications across various industries, such as:
The aerospace industry uses rubber over molded latches for aircraft doors and hatches. Rubber grommets are found in window blinds and seat armrests. For defense aircraft, rubber grommets serve as electrical insulation, windshield sealing, and noise control components.
Government agencies require high-quality custom rubber products for research prototypes, replacement products for outdated or hard-to-find applications, and other critical applications and projects.
Gaskets and valves are widely used in medical devices such as tubing, catheters, IV bags, and fluid dispensers used for medical operations.
O-rings are an economical and reliable choice for sealing and processing applications in the pharmaceutical industry.
Rubber gaskets ensure safety and sanitation in food and dairy processing plants. Custom rubber products are used in ovens, mixers, pasteurization, and bottle sealing.
