The Custom SBR Rubber Molding Experts

Chemical Designation: Styrene Butadiene, Buna S, GRS

Molded SBR rubber is an economical substitution for Natural Rubber in many applications because it provides significant cost savings. SBR is a good choice for applications where finished product exposure includes acids, organic salts and alkalis. In addition, SBR Rubber is soft and has good flexing characteristics at low temperatures, like Natural Rubber. It is wear resistant and non-toxic.

Do not use SBR Rubber for applications that involve petroleum derivatives or exposure to chemicals. Special formulations of SBR can provide sunlight and heat resistance.

Red SBR Rubber is popular for use as a gasket in low-pressure applications, such as washers and gaskets for heating and plumbing. Black SBR is popular for use in applications where abrasion is a factor.

Rubber To Metal Bonding

For rubber to metal bonding, both injection molding and transfer molding processes are used to bond rubber to metal.  The process depends upon the part application, specifically the use of the finished product. This an ideal process for bonding rubber to metal and plastic parts, an example of such parts would be gears, shafts, rollers, bumpers, and stops in a wide array of sizes and shapes. Additional uses for this process include rubber components bonded to steel, aluminum, brass and plastic.
