Custom Rubber Compression Molding Manufacturer
Compression molding is when a preform (specific size and weight of uncured rubber) is placed into the open mold. The heated mold (specific to the part) is then closed using hydraulic pressure. The rubber is held in the heated cavity for a specific amount of time to properly cure the rubber into its final shape.
