Rubber To Metal Bonding Process:
To create a rubber to metal bonding requires the same expertise of rubber moulding, with the addition of preparation of the metal part, so that an excellent bond is achieved. The metal part is degreased, then a heat activated adhesive is applied, usually by spraying. When the metal insert is placed in the tool, the rubber is free to fill the cavity of the tool whilst adhering to the metal. Not all metals can be bonded with rubber. We can advise on this.
The common metals we supply bonded are:
Brass, Stainless steel, Aluminium, Steel
Most common rubbers can be bonded, such as
EPDM, Nitrile, Natural Rubber
The finished product has incredibly high bond strength, making it suitable for applications where strain will be put on the item.
