Gordon Rubber utilizes two different rubber molding processes to manufacture molded rubber products:
Rubber Compression Molding
- Rubber Transfer Molding
Rubber Compression Molding is the simplest and most widely used rubber manufacturing production method. It involves placing material directly into the cavity of a mold and using high pressure to form it to that shape. It is most commonly used for the manufacture of gaskets, seals and O-rings.
Rubber Transfer Molding utilizes a hybrid of compression and injection methods and involves placing pre-heated material directly into a closed mold. It is capable of producing intricate parts with greater quality and consistency than regular compression molding.
A Variety of Polymer Compounds
Using the above rubber molding processes, we can work with a variety of polymers, including but not limited to:
- Buna (Nitrile)
- FDA material
- Gum (Natural)
