We’re not just really nice rubber distributors, we’re engineering solutions experts and a customer of ours recently brought us a unique challenge in vibration isolation that required a unique application solution. Together with the team at Parker LORD, we joined forces with our customer’s engineering team and found that solution.
One of the most versatile materials on the planet, rubber allows for a multitude of manufacturing processes to get to the right part for virtually any application. In this article, we’ll cover how the extruded rubber process works, the advantages of using rubber extrusion, and the typical parts created by this process.
Selecting the right material for your rubber part can mean the difference between the perfect form, fit, and functionality and having to go back to the drawing board while the production gets delayed. Here at RPM, we have multiple raw materials and rubber compounds to choose from, but one of the biggest questions we get asked is, “Which is better? Natural rubber or synthetic rubber?” As you might expect, there isn’t a simple, straightforward, one-sized fits all answer to that question, instead, it depends on a number of factors. In this article, we’ll dive into the high-level differences between synthetic and natural rubber.
Molded rubber parts, whether standard or custom manufactured, are used throughout virtually every industry, including off-highway, medical equipment manufacturing, agriculture, and automotive. Rubber is an extremely versatile material and is most commonly fabricated through the use of molding. In this article, we’ll share the three most common types of rubber molding and their benefits.
