Silicone Rubber Molding at TEAM Rapid

At TEAM Rapid, we offer rubber injection molding, rubber compression molding, liquid silicone rubber molding. 


Rubber Injection Molding 

Rubber injection molding is a branch of injection molding, rubber is the molding material for this process. The commonly used rubbers include TPE, TPU, TPV, TPR etc, which can be in different brand and hardness. The tooling methods are same as general tooling, as the rubber is flexible, the tooling structure can be simplified. For low-volume rubber parts, we usually use manual insert to release the undercuts, which can deeply simplify the parting lines and ejection system.  The more attention is how to set the parting lines skillfully to reduce flashes on parts.


Compression Molding 

Compression molding is a molding process which places a rubber/silicone(solid) onto an open, heated mold cavity, then close and compress in order to have the material fully contact all areas of the mold to form the shape of cavity. The process is similar to injection molding, but it is different on the injection process. 


Compression Molding Materials

Thermoplastic materials are used commonly in compression molding. At TEAM Rapid, we offers a series of molding materials includes:

Silicone 

EPDM 

Urethane

Polyurethane(PU)

Polytetrafluoroethylene(PTFE)

High-density Polyethylene(HDPE) 


What is Compression Molding?

You can take the following picture for information of our compression molding and China silicone molding, there are main steps as follow:

A: Build a mold. The mold is usually a two-plated mold, the structure is closed and open, and might involve insert structure.

B: Place the molding material(mixed with curing agent) into the heated and open cavity.

C: Close the mold, compress the material fully contact all areas of the mold cavity.

D: Heating the mold to a certain temperature to make the molding cured.

E: Take out the molding then remove the overflows and flashes.

Compression Molding


Liquid Silicone Rubber Molding 

When you looking for silicone rubber parts in high precision, LSR molding is the best solution for you! LSR parts are used widely in a range of different industries. Their good properties such as steam resistant, low compression set, conductivity, oil and heat resistant etc allows it to have excellent performances in working as gasket, keyboard, touch pad, long-term durability components etc.
