Compression Molded Rubber

Ideal Processes:
LIM Polyurethane
Transfer Molded Rubber

Overview of Process
Custom Design
Metal Fab
Metal Prep
Rubber or PU
Finishing ops

Metal Fabrication

Blasting and Adhesive Application
Cleans the metal surface and improves the surface bonding of steel to elastomer.

Thermoset Polyurethanes (aka Open Cast)
Two Part Polymer System
MDI Polyester and Polyether

The Process -
Heated compression / Vulcanizing

Configurable screen tooling

Fixed Perimeters c/w Flexible Inserts

Quick set / release tooling

Shuttle System

Clicker press – flash removal

Finishing – Saw cutting


The Process -
Urethane Molding
Heated Tables – Open Cast

Fixed Perimeter Molds w/ Flexible Inserts

Urethane post cure
Our Urethanes must be conditioned at 160°F for 16 hours to maximize quality

Trimming – flash removal

Quality Control
Small aperture inspection
