As highlighted by IQS Directory in their piece “Types of Rubber Used for Rubber Molding,” the world of rubber molding encompasses a vast array of materials. The diversity in rubber types used for the molding process primarily involves synthetics formed through polymerization, boosting durability and flexibility in shaping.
Understanding the distinctions between natural and synthetic rubber is pivotal in comprehending the materials involved in the rubber manufacturing process. Natural rubber, sourced from the latex of rubber trees, boasts robust tensile strength, making it ideal for various applications, including vibration dampers, seals, and diaphragms.
Synthetic rubbers, such as Nitrile (NBR), derived from acrylonitrile and butadiene, are extensively employed in rubber molding due to their resistance to water, oils, and solvents. Other types like Hydrogenated Nitrile Butadiene (HNBR) and Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer (EPDM) cater to specific needs, offering strength, heat resistance, and durability for distinct applications in various industries.
