Since 1973 we have developed significant technical expertise in the manufacture of rubber extrusions. Our knowledge of both design and manufacture means we can produce and supply standard or custom made extrusions for most applications.
We have a wide range of rubber extrusion equipment providing the flexibility required to meet our customer’s bespoke extrusion profile demands. We can offer our customers various sizes and quantities of rubber extrusions to suit specific needs and all of our extrusion profiles and materials are manufactured to British, European or International standards or to exact customer specifications.
The most common extrusion profiles we supply include:
The term rubber extrusion is defined as producing a product with a consistent cross-sectional shape by pushing uncured rubber material through a mould die. There are two main types of extruder used to push the rubber through the die, these are screw extruders and ram extruders and the choice of which to use will generally depend on the length and quantity of the extrusion profile required.
The vulcanisation process takes place once the profile has been extruded generally using microwaves, steam autoclaves, hot baths or hot air. The profile is then packaged and made ready to ship to our customer.
Typically our rubber extrusions are manufactured from EPDM or silicon but other rubber materials can be specified, such as Nitrile or Neoprene. EPDM is available as either a dense or sponge.
We can also manufacture special extrusion profiles in the following material grades:
We can produce coloured extrusion profiles to suit and Shore hardness can be specified as required. For the full details of materials that we can use in our rubber extrusions please contact us.
