Our History and Expertise
We are a rubber moulding UK based company who have produced rubber mouldings for almost 50 years. We offer a bespoke solution to meet our customers’ exact requirements taking your idea from concept to design and through to production.

Our highly skilled precision engineers are experts in the machining of precision engineered components including the design and manufacture of mould tools and precision engineered mould inserts for our rubber moulding customers.
The Rubber Moulding Process
Rubber Moulding products are made by applying heat and pressure to an uncured rubber material in a mould. This process will induce vulcanisation of the compound whilst the rubber material forms the shape of the mould tool cavity.
At Clifton Rubber we have a diverse mix of hydraulic presses. As a result, we can make components using any of the three primary moulding processes – compression, transfer and injection.
This capacity mix gives us the flexibility required to make a broad range of rubber products. These can be small parts up to very large parts and one off prototypes through to high volume continuous production.
Our rubber-moulded components and products span a wide range of industries and applications.
Manufactured products typically include:
- Rubber boots
- Rubber pads
- Rubber mounts
- Rubber valves
- Rubber liners
- Rubber grommets
- Rubber bushes
- Rubber seals
- Rubber moulded gaskets
- and many more!!
Rubber Moulding Materials
Moulded rubber products can be made using any commercially available rubber and in a wide spectrum of colours and hardness’s. Common materials we process include:
- Natural Rubber
- Nitrile (NBR)
We have the technical expertise to adhere rubber to other materials including bonding rubber to metals, plastics and ceramics either during the vulcanisation process (hot bond) or after the moulding process is complete (cold bond).
