CUSTOM MOLDING Whether simple or complex, large or small, solid or sponge, A & D Rubber can produce custom rubber parts and goods for any industry, in virtually any rubber compound and color. We can manufacture to your blueprint specifications or one of our sales engineers can assist you in developing your custom molded product. We can also custom mix material to meet your unique requirements.
We have injection, compression, and transfer presses from 12" x 14" x 34" up to 24" by 60" with pressure from 30 to 450 tons. All products are created to exacting specifications under strict quality controls. Nothing leaves our factory until it's been verified and certified by our Quality Department.
COMPRESSION MOLDINGCompression molding is one of the primary methods used to mold rubber parts. It allows for close tolerances, higher molecular weights, and complex constructions. Parts can often be created in one step, making this process one of the simplest and most effective ways to manufacture rubber goods.
TRANSFER MOLDING Similar to injection molding, transfer molding creates products with greater detail and consistency and less cycling time than compression molding. With transfer molding, tolerances within 0.003" or less are possible.
Transfer molding is suited to handling silicones, fluorosilicones, nitrile, neoprene, EPDM, Viton® and Buna materials. With A & D's in-house expertise in metal-to-rubber bonded/insert molded parts and our selection of presses, we can mold simple to intricate connective boots, bellows, flanges, seals, and gaskets of the highest quality.
LOW PRESSURE POUR/CASTINGSLow pressure pour processing is good for circular designs as well as pressure-tight vessels. These castings create a denser product without the higher tooling cost. This process is best suited to urethanes and RTV silicones.
