Technical Specialties offers a variety of traditional and modern rubber extrusion methods, like hot and cold extrusion methods, autoclave for open steam process, microwave methods, steam curing, continuous curing, molded corners, splicing by cold bonding or vulcanization.
Materials include all synthetic rubbers, like:
- EPDM Rubber & Sponge
- Silicone Rubber & Sponge
The use of extruded seals is extremely diverse. You will find extrusions in many types of manufacturing processes for a variety of purposes. Applications include, but are not limited to: door and window seals in the architectural environment and automotive, appliance and aircraft industries; and The elevator industry. The applications are endless and expanding rapidly with innovative engineering of extrudable materials.
What are the advantages of Rubber Extrusion and Rubber Extruded Products?
- A continuous extrusion process can produce finished products in different lengths
- Raw materials can be formed into unique profiles with a variety of lengths and shapes
- Extruded rubber products or “extrudates” have flexible characteristics and are highly resistant to chemicals and heat
Rubber extrusions are continuous profiles, used often in sealing applications, such as doors and windows, weather strip, draught excluders. Or more robust applications, such as D-fenders on ships. Extrusions can range from simple geometric shapes, through to complex seal designs using dual materials.
Rubber extrusion is a process used to manufacture rubber products. The process uses an extrusion machine to force synthetic or natural rubber material through a shaped die under high pressure. The material used is typically soft, un-vulcanized rubber.
