Injection Rubber Moulding
Maximum Durability and Versatility
Injection Rubber Moulding has an almost infinite amount of uses from making Rubber Gaiters for joystick manufacture, where there is a need for high volume but with a high level of consistency across multiple batches, oil seals where accuracy is essential to water couplings to avoid leakage. Even buttons for breathing apparatus where precision and durability is paramount where lives are at risk.
At SRM we have an unparalleled knowledge of injection rubber moulding and have worked across a broad range of industry sectors including: Rail, Petrochemical, Construction and Healthcare to name but a few.
All of our moulds are engineered in house by our highly skilled CNC Mould-makers, this gives our customers the peace of mind that we can manage the whole process from initial design through to distribution on time and on budget.
In short we INNOVATE | ENGINEER | DELIVER
The Injection Moulding Process
The rubber injection moulding process works by significantly heating the rubber and using a very high pressure to inject the rubber compound in to the mould. From there it is injected through the runner system in the tool into the cavities of the closed hot mould. The combination of pressure, temperature and time facilitates the crosslinking of chemical bonds commonly referred to as vulcanization. Process parameters are usually programmed into the press to control temperature, volume and rate that compound is injected into the mould cavities
