Plastic Rubber Composite

From a technical standpoint, the plastic rubber composite process or multiple component injection moulding process are the tried and true methods for plastic injection mouldings.

Whether the components are hard/soft (thermoplast composites/TPE) or multi-colored, it doesn‘t matter which method is used.

There are some limitations concerning the thermoplastic elastomers with the hard/soft components that are subject to extreme mechanical, chemical or thermal conditions. The use of rubber based elastomers is required in those cases. Plastic rubber composites (thermoplast/elastomer composites) are used under those conditions.
Up until now, these components were produced in two separate manufacturing processes in different locations. Our objective is to produce  the plastic rubber composites at one location when technical feasibility and cost effectiveness go hand in hand. This would offer a clear benefit to our customers.  

Advantages 

  • Weight reduction (by using plastic instead of metal)
  • Corrosion proof (by using plastic instead of metal)

  • Cost effective injection moulding production method
  • No adhesives necessary

Economical

  • By avoiding the use of a bonding agent, the production process can be almost fully automated
  • Repeated handling of parts is eliminated
  • Possible causes of defects can be avoided and the number of scrapped parts is reduced
  • Depending on the specific conditions of use, up to 30% reduction of costs can be achieved


Application of use

Everywhere where rubber parts need to be permanently fixated or attached. These types of composites are found in a wide range of applications, e.g. shock absorbing bearings in the automotive chassis, buffers, and reinforced sealing rings in machines and engines.
