Rubber To Metal Bonded
Products made from the rubber bonded to metal process are found in almost all manufacturing markets. Many of the rubber bonded to metal products are used to isolate noise and vibration during manufacturing applications.
CSS, Inc is able to provide custom solutions for rubber to metal bonding applications. Our factories are equipped with engineers with materials expertise to determine the right combination of natural or synthetic rubber, substrate, and bonding agent to meet the strength and durability requirements of your customers application.
Our bonding process vulcanizes rubber materials while mechanically or chemically attaching them to a variety of substrates including steel, stainless steel, brass, and aluminum, copper. We offer a variety of choices of elastomers to match each customers application requirements. Bonding agents are matched to the physical characteristics of the rubber when cured and maintain the integrity of the bond over an extended service life.
Rubber bonded to metal is the end product of rubber to metal bonding process, which involves adhering rubber to a metal substrate. The metal imparts sufficient stiffness to the rubber so that the part can be mounted, the rubber on the other hand equips the metal with elasticity and damping properties. Prior the occurrence of molding, the metal is degreased and sandblasted to eliminate rust and other impurities existing on its surface. The metal is then sprayed at with a bonding agent. The rubber once dried is placed into the mold to undergo forming and curing. Rubbers of this type are prevalent in various industrial, medical and commercial domains.
Chemical and physical bonding strength has to be developed in the required quantum to withstand the various types of shocks, vibrations and sealing. Rubber to metal bonding comes in wide variety like mountings, bushings, seals, bearings, shock absorbers, buffers etc. CSS, Inc is able to bond rubber to bakelite, fabric and all metals.
When selecting which type of rubber to use to bond to metal, there is a multitude of possibilities. The condition during the selection process is that the rubber should flow easily into the mold without developing a significant level of cross-linking.
CSS, Inc, is able to manufacture parts with a variety of dimensions and with tolerances that meet or exceed RMA standards. CSS,Inc, is capable of manufacturing quantities ranging from prototype to large volume production.
