Quality At the Heart of Everything We Do
To maintain a quality product and service we put quality at the heart of our processes. Our quality management system is therefore certified to ISO9001.
We make all mould tools and inserts in-house. As a result, our prices and lead times for tooling are very competitive.
Material Options For Rubber Moulded Components
Moulded products can be made using any commercially available rubber and in a wide spectrum of colours and hardnesses. Common materials we process include:
- Natural Rubber (NR)
- 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).
The Rubber Moulding Process
Moulded rubber 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.
