Rubber to Plastic Bonding

Rubber-to-plastic bonding or insert moulding is an intricate process, given that plastic cannot endure the same temperature and pressure that metals can. However, plastic is favoured as a component for being lightweight, less expensive, and unbendable, which works well for certain applications.

SRM Industries Ltd can source the proper plastic insert if needed, as well as developing the elastomer and chemical bonding compound required for maximum performance of the part. Often, over-moulding is used to completely cover the plastic part and serve as a barrier to hazards in the operating environment.
