Rubber to Metal Bonded Components Manufacturing Process
Rubber injection molding and transfer molding are two methods we use for encapsulating and bonding rubber materials to metal. These processes form the most effective mechanical bonds to metal parts and inserts. Thus, they are ideal for the adherence of rubber to both metal and plastic.
Here at Qualiform, creating rubber to metal bonded components requires a two-step preparation process before we can mold the rubber. First, we need to degrease the metal and remove any contaminants, so we can apply a heat-activated adhesive to the metal. Once we apply the adhesive, we can begin the overmolding process.
Upon finishing the preparation, we place the parts into a mold cavity. If we are molding a specific part of the metal, we secure it with magnets. For complete encapsulation, the metal will be secured with chaplet pins. Now, we can start the rubber molding process.
Rubber molding involves increasing the temperature in the cavity gradually, so we can begin curing the rubber and activating the adhesive we applied to the metal earlier. As a result, the rubber will create a reliable mechanical bond with the metal. Then, we allow the rubber to cool, remove the finished part from the mold cavity, and start the process from the beginning.
