Atlantic Gasket Corporation can help your production or assembly project in a wide variety of ways. By utilizing a broad base of rubber materials, we are able to supply custom injection molded rubber parts, as well as conventional transfer and compression molded rubber parts for all industries. Additionally, we can supply extruded rubber, lathe cut rubber, and die cut rubber parts to exact specifications. Read on or, better yet, contact us directly for more information on how we can enhance your project.
Available Materials for Custom Molded Rubber Parts:
Silicone rubber is a semi-organic synthetic that can be made to withstand temperatures as high as 450° F and as low as -150° F and will remain flexible and serviceable over the entire temperature range.
Nitrile rubber is a copolymer of butadiene and acrylonitrile and is primarily used in applications requiring excellent resistance to petroleum-based fuels and solvents.
SBR rubber, a synthetic copolymer of styrene and butadiene, has a fair resistance to solvents and chemicals but has excellent water resistance.
Neoprene rubber is a polymer of chloroprene and has several valuable properties and works well in applications requiring resistance to gasoline, sunlight, ozone, and oxidation.
EPDM rubber, a copolymer of ethylene and propylene, has outstanding resistance to aging, weathering, ozone, oxygen, and many chemicals, as well as excellent temperature stability and steam and water resistance.
Viton® rubber, the end product of the copolymerization of highly fluorinated olefins, is resistant to the effects of ozone, oxygen, and sunlight and finds a unique usage in hot oil environments where outstanding compression set is required.
Butyl rubber, originally known as the "inner tube rubber", is resistant to abrasion, ozone, weathering, and many chemicals, exhibits low resilience, and has excellent dampening properties.
Hypalon rubber offers excellent color stability, low moisture absorption, good dielectric qualities, and high abrasion resistance.
Atlantic Gasket’s Rubber Molding Processes:
Injection Molding offers the fastest cycle times, provides the maximum product consistency, and produces molded rubber parts that display a virtual flash-free finish eliminating the need for additional trim work.
Transfer Molding offers shorter cycle times and better product consistency than compression molding and is the preferred process for rubber-to-metal molded parts.
Compression Molding offers the lowest mold costs, generates the least amount of "throw away" material for a lower cost per part, and is the optimum way to produce large molded rubber products.
