EXTRUSION

The technology for profiles and hollow seals

Are you looking for high quality hose, flex or hollow or inflatable seals? Extrusion is the designated technology for making profiles and hollow seals.

An extruder is used to force the rubber compound through an injection die under high pressure. As a result of the movement of the extruder, a cylinder with a turning steel ‘worm’ is pushing and heated the rubber compound forward, making it mouldable. The injection die at the end of the extruder determines the form and dimensions of the product. The compound is subsequently vulcanised, giving the finished product its specific properties. Time, temperature and pressure are factors of overriding importance here.
