Product Description

Here at The Rubber Company we manufacture custom rubber extrusions from a wide variety of compounds, grades and specifications. We can work directly with you throughout the design and manufacturing process. This ensures that you always get an extrusion that is tailored to your unique application. With over 100 years experience in the rubber industry, we regularly work with customers from all around the world. This experience enables us to create the most suitable as well as best quality extrusions directly for you.

Manufacturing Capabilities

We utilise a unique combination of manufacturing practices and technology when creating our custom rubber extrusions. This gives you almost limitless freedom when it comes to the look, feel, mechanical properties as well as resistance of your profile. We will always offer the highest quality solutions possible. However, we are also able to work within your specific budget and schedule for the project. Some of our key manufacturing capabilities include:

Fabrication & Joining

For secure joins we use a range of rubber to rubber welding solutions. This enables us to join multiple extrusions together, either to create a watertight seal or to fit around a specific bend radius. Unlike adhesive joining, a rubber weld fuses the two sections together in order to reduce weak points in the join. Rubber welding is often much more cost and time efficient than creating a profile mould.

Manufacturing to Material Standards

Many applications will not require any specific material grades, and so a standard use compound will suffice. However for special use applications and working environments The Rubber Company has you covered. We can manufacture our custom rubber extrusions from a range of highly specialised material standards and grades. This could be anything from Flame Retardant (EN45545-2) to FDA approved or Anti-Static grades to name but a few. Not only does this ensure that your extrusion is made to last, but it also ensures that the extrusion will conform to health and safety regulations.

Material Compound Flexibility

Aside from solid rubber we can also manufacture rubber extrusions from sponge rubber as well as composite materials. Depending on your application a solid rubber extrusion may be too hard and not flexible enough. We offer a wide selection of sponge rubber profiles as well as bespoke sponge manufacturing. We can also provide composite extrusions with are typically manufactured from two or more different materials. We can work directly with material compounders to find a material that perfectly suits your application.

RAL Colour Matching

Although rubber is typically black in colour, we have the ability to offer RAL colour matching using certain compounds. This enables our custom rubber extrusions to perfect fit your application or branding. It can be useful for adding higher visibility or hazard warning to objects. Using certain compounds such as TPE we can also produce non-marking rubber. This is typically popular for customer facing applications such as yachts and commercial applications.

Popular Material Compounds

There are many different rubber compounds available for use when manufacturing extrusions. It is crucial to select the right compound to match your application as each compound offers slightly different properties. This not only ensures that your extrusion will be fit for purpose but also helps to extend service life. Below is a list of some of the most popular extrusion compounds as well as the differences between them:

EPDM

EPDM is perhaps one of the most common extrusion compounds available, this is largely due to two key features. EPDM profiles are generally more cost efficient to extrude when compared to more specialised materials and grades. EPDM is also a highly versatile material, offering good mechanical properties and good resistance to weathering deterioration.

Silicone

Silicone is another popular extrusion material due to the good resistance it offers against a wide variety of common chemicals. We can produce silicone extrusions in a wide variety of colours, and are often able to match specific RAL colours. It provides excellent high temperature resistance and is also available FDA approved.

Neoprene

Neoprene features excellent resistance against oil & fuel deterioration. It also offers many of the same weathering resistance properties found in EPDM but with superior abrasion and tear resistance. These properties often make Neoprene the first choice for use in automotive applications.

TPE

Despite being less known than the materials mentioned above, TPE is an incredibly versatile extrusion material. It provides a middle ground between rubber and plastic materials. TPE is non-marking, which makes it ideal for use in high end or customer facing seals. It is also available in FDA approved grades and offers good weathering and chemical resistance.

We can also manufacture custom rubber extrusions from Natural Rubber, SBR, Butyl, Nitrile, Viton, Polyurethane, Hypalon, Epichlorhydrin and Fluorosilicone. Please contact us for more information regarding our full range of rubber extrusion compounds.
