Frequently Asked Questions
There are many different molding techniques, but compression molding is probably the most commonly used method (and our method of choice) for molding a custom gasket. Compression molding is a production process that uses heat and pressure to shape a pliable raw material into a finished product.
Typically, the mold is made of steel or aluminum and contains machined cavities. The uncured silicone or raw material is inserted in the mold cavities in a putty-like state, and after 7-10 minutes cures to a finished rubber like material. The shape and size of the molding cavity determines the final form of the gasket material. Compression molding supports the manufacture of small parts as well as larger gaskets in addition to accommodating precise gasket details for intricate and complex gasket designs.
There are many occasions in which a local home improvement store or industrial distributor doesn’t stock the exact part required. OEMs and any businesses that use heavy equipment or precision machinery will need custom solutions at some point. This ensures optimal use, personnel protection, and extended life for valuable assets. Where on-shelf options fail, custom solutions can provide tailor-made materials that fit your exact specifications.
This guide will provide basic info for the manufacturing methods, material types and properties of custom rubber parts.
