We can use a multitude of rubber compounds including: EPDM, SBR, Buna N(Nitrile), Butyl, Natural, Neoprene, Silicone, Viton, etc. These of course are available in various hardnesses and colours to match your requirements. FDA or NSF approved materials are also available when the application requires this type of compound.
When permanently bonding metal inserts to rubber or fully encapsulating metal with rubber, we use a specialized hi-temp. primer & adhesive which is applied manually to each metal type insert prior to vulcanization or cure process. The metal insert first needs to be cleaned of any dirt, grime or any other superficial markings by being treated with a degreasing agent and then sandblasted using our on-site sandblast facility.
