Rubber to Metal Bonding
Rubber to metal bonding to a wide array of elastomers is another specialty of REDCO’s expertise. Using the latest proven adhesives and technology from Lord Manufacturing, these materials can be natural rubber, SBR, neoprene, nitrile, EPDM, butyl, silicone, urethane, fluoroelastomers including Viton, Fluorel, Tecnoflon and perfluoroelastomers. Most metal inserts are produced in-house and are conditioned to give adhesion with 100% rubber tear from the insert. The versatility of REDCO’s bonding systems adds up to dependable quality products.
Benefits of Rubber to Metal Bonding
By bonding rubber and metal components, the number of individual parts in a product is reduced, making your production process simpler. Combining rubber and metal materials in a single, solidly-bonded piece also allows for part designs that would be difficult or impossible to create from a single material. And, thanks to REDCO’s expertise in rubber to metal bonding, the resulting bond is often stronger than the physical properties of the elastomer itself.
