Rubber can be processed using a variety of moulding methods. Coruba’s compression and injection rubber moulding facilities deliver a fast and efficient moulding service that can cater to everything from simple rings to intricate rubber mouldings and metal bonded component parts.
Ideal for complex and high-strength objects, rubber compression moulding involves uncured rubber being placed into a mould cavity that is then closed and heated; the rubber is then removed from the mould after it has cured.
This process includes forcing a molten material into a hot mould cavity using a ram or screw-type plunger. It is used to produce small rubber parts that are required in large quantities.
Our readily available standard rubber mouldings include:
O-rings are mechanical gaskets that are used as a seal to prevent the escape of air and fluid.
As reinforcement materials, grommets protect a hole from damage whilst safeguarding whatever passes through.
Rubber seals are generally used to prevent leaks, vibrations and noise.
Predominantly used as bumpers in the marine industry, fenders absorb the impact during contact between a vessel and the dock.
Coruba also produces moulded rubber parts to suit your specific requirements. Send us a technical drawing outlining the material specification, along with the quantities you require at firstname.lastname@example.org or by fax: +44 (0) 845 130 8375.
