|The Sjobrand Rubber Products
Division services a variety of industries with precision rubber
parts using a vulcanized molding process. Rubber compounds share
many of the same attributes as our urethane product line including:
• Versatility –
derived from the latex of rubber trees, rubber can be cast,
or molded, into almost any shape or size.
• Hardness – varying
the formulation and cell density can produce a wide range
of hardnesses, or durometer, from squeezeably soft to hard
as a bowling ball.
• Environmental compatibility
– rubber can perform well in many chemical, corrosive,
and low temperature environments
• Flexibility – rubber
has tremendous elasticity, think of a rubber “super
Rubber components have specific capabilities that require
its choice over urethane or other materials for many applications,
• High Friction Coefficient
– rubber ‘grips’, as in an automotive tire,
and is ideal for applications that need to grab and move material.
• Leakproof – again,
the car tire is a well known example of rubbers ability to
contain air and liquids.
SjoBrand engineers will understand your application and recommend
the appropriated rubber formulation. Or, your part can be
chemically analyzed to determine its formulation and that
compound replicated exactly.
