Rubber to metal bond

10. Metal to rubber

Bonding rubber to metal is a common practice in manufacturing. The bonded rubber created through this process is used for noise and vibration isolation in automotive and construction and instrumentation engineering and pneumatic equipment applications, among others.

Rubber and metal have very different physical characteristics. When their strengths are united through bonding rubber to metal, the combination results in a product that is strong and rigid yet capable of sealing and absorbing shock. In the rubber metal bonding process there are three main components: the rubber material, the bonding agents and the metal substrate. The process rubber to metal bonding involves spraying the bonding agents onto the metal substrate and placing this in a mold with uncured rubber. When the rubber gets cured, the bonded part is ready.
