When it comes to getting the most out of a square rubber extrusion project, it’s all about material selection. Connect with Qualiform today to learn more.

What is Rubber Extrusion?

Rubber extrusion involves the forced movement of bulk rubber material through a die of a specific cross-section to produce a custom part. This rubber fabrication method is especially useful for manufacturing hoses, tubing and seals, for example.

Could Neoprene Rubber be the Right Material for My Application Requirements?

Does your square rubber extrusion project require significant oil or ozone resistance? If so, then neoprene rubber may be the solution for you. In addition to solvent resistance, manufacturers rely on neoprene rubber to withstand abrasion, heat and sunlight. Overall, neoprene’s characteristic durability, in combination with its convenient pricing, make the material a popular choice for square rubber extrusion. 

This type of rubber is notable for its compoundability. Neoprene’s chemical makeup is easy to modify to yield varying chemical and physical traits. In addition, the elastomer offers distinct flame retardant and self-extinguishing properties. A neoprene rubber strip also offers exceptional resistance to mechanical stresses such as twisting and flexing.

Neoprene rubber cord is useful across a diverse range of industries. For example, the material is ideal for hose covers and shock absorber seals in automotive manufacturing, and for window seals in construction.
