Neoprene Compound Rubber Molding

Molded neoprene rubber is an all-purpose resilient polymer/elastomer because it provides resistance to corrosion from chemicals. Neoprene demonstrates resilience, tear resistance and tensile strength. Additionally, it is abrasion resistant and has admirable compression set properties.

Although Neoprene is resistant to oil, gasoline, sunlight, the ozone and oxidation, other polymers have better resistance to these same elements.

Transfer Molding

Transfer molding is an ideal process to not only produce precision molded rubber products, but also products that require rubber bonded to metal surfaces.

Rubber Transfer Molding combines the advantages of injection molding with the ease of compression molding. Rubber transfer molding is the ideal process for forming parts that require:

  • Exact positioning
  • Bonding rubber to fragile metal parts – such as wire
  • Mold designs that contain multiple cavities and can trap air
  • Intricate parts with lower volume requirements

The rubber transfer molding process is ideal to produce both solid rubber parts, rubber part with inserts and parts that require bonding rubber to metal. Rubber transfer molding combines the advantages of injection molding with the ease of compression molding. Transfer molding is the ideal process for forming rubber products that require:

  • Exact positioning
  • Bonding rubber to fragile metal parts – such as wire
  • Mold designs that contain multiple cavities and can trap air
  • Intricate parts with lower volume requirements

Advantages of the Rubber Transfer Molding Process

Transfer molding offers several advantages over other methods by providing:

  • Shorter production cycles
  • Maintains closer dimensional tolerances than compression molding
  • Provides uniformity
  • Fast mold setup
  • Economical process with high cavity count per mold per cycle
  • Cost effective tooling
  • Allows for rubber to metal bonding
  • Allows for rubber overmolding
  • Allows for  design flexibility, sharp edges and intricate parts
