Molding/Curing

The Molding/Curing stage covers the physical forming of the rubber material to prepare it for use in product assembly. The process choices are applicable to all Rubber example materials:

  • Injection molding, bulk is the default selection for all Rubber materials. This process should be used when the rubber material is in liquid form and injected into a pre-made mold, cooled, then removed and trimmed.
  • Molding, hot compression should be selected when the rubber material is shaped by being placed into a heated mold and compressed.
  • Pouring, bulk, for rubber should be selected when the rubber material is formed by bulk pouring.
  • Vulcanization, for rubber should be selected when the rubber material is modified by vulcanization to improve physical properties.
