Rubber To Metal Adhesion

Posted on July 29, 2016 by Nick Cusatis

silicone-partsThe processes of adhering rubber Silicone Parts – Molded Dimensionsto metal components are widespread techniques in the rubber industry. Generally the same considerations and procedures are applicable for rubber to rigid non-metallic components, but the adhesion values may be lower. Various adhesion levels can be obtained. For instance, to obtain adhesion on critical products, such as engine mounts, very close controls are required, both on metal and rubber preparation. Some products may require only enough adhesion for assembly. The adhesion level (tear/tensile strength) is directly affected by type of metal, surface preparation, non-metallic inserts, compound composition, curing conditions, and type of adhesive.

EPDM, A Go-To Material

Posted on July 1, 2016 by Nick Cusatis

screen-shot-2016-07-01-at-9-08-17-amEPDM (ethylene-propylene-diene) has many exceptional qualities making it a go-to elastomeric material.  EPDM is thermoset, meaning that it is cured with elevated heat.  This curing process transforms the material by cross-linking individual chains of the polymer, resulting in a solid material that cannot be melted and reshaped after curing.  As a synthetic, it is manufactured from petroleum rather than latex tapped from the rubber tree.  Its primary material properties include outstanding heat, ozone, and weather resistance.  Further enhancing those properties, EPDM is resistant to alkalis, acids, and oxygenated solvents, along with water and steam.  Continue reading
