We understand that profile finishing is crucial and so we of different finishing solutions for our custom rubber extrusions. These can vary from pre and post production techniques, which we tailor to each unique manufacturing run. This enables us to ensure that you always get the best profile or seal possible.
We utilise mirror welding on profiles that we produce in frames, corners and rings. It enable us to produce these shapes without the need for adhesive and additional material. The profiles are able to maintain their flexibility with no significant hard or weak point. It also provides a far superior sealing property than any bonding would be able to achieve.
Our automatic cutting machines enable us to produce very short and specific cuts. We can ensure that profiles have cuts no more than 10mm as we as very long lengths. Our cutting tolerances are L2 as standard (L1 upon request).
We can miter cut our profiles to a wide range of angles to suit your requirements. This enables our profiles to seal around corners without distorting and warping. It also ensures that our profiles are able to provide consistent protection where required. We can also add closed ends to fenders and other hollow profiles.
We have the ability to print simple logos, names and product references directly onto our profiles. This can be particularly useful for promotional or branding purposes or to mark different profiles and production batches. The printing process is designed to remain in place even during use for many years.
Drilling & Punching
Post production we can add holes of virtually size using different drilling and punching tools. We can position and space the holes to your exact specifications in order to ensure a secure fit. We can even drill holes of different sizes to enable you to use fixing tools.
We can supply our profiles with a spray on sliding agent on either specific parts or the entire profile. This aids in installation particularly on parts with a low tolerance or high friction. The sliding solution we use is silicone free.
During the extrusion process we can insert an anti-elongation wire within the profile itself. This helps to ensure that the profile is able to maintain it’s form while under pressure.
We can supply our profiles with a number of different adhesion solutions depending on the specific application. This can include a high quality, easy peel adhesive backing layer for quick installation. We can also supply different adhesives to create a secure bond between the profile a number of different materials.
