Custom rubber or rubber-like materials that can stretch and compress under pressure are extruded to create an elastomer profile. Seals, gaskets, and automotive components are examples of applications that benefit from the use of elastomer profile extrusion since they call for flexibility, elasticity, and durability. To fulfill the unique demands of the client, complicated forms, sizes, and colors may be produced using the extrusion technique, which can be customized. Customers looking for goods that are heat, chemical, and wear-resistant should definitely choose elastomers since they offer dependable, long-lasting performance.

The Role of Elastomer Profiles in Various Industrial Applications

  • Sealing and Gasketing

    Elastomer profiles are commonly used in sealing and gasketing applications in various industrial sectors. These profiles help in preventing the leakage of air, water, and other fluids, thus ensuring the safety and reliability of the products and applications.

  • Vibration and Noise Dampening

    Elastomer profiles are also used to dampen the vibrations and noise generated by heavy machinery and equipment. They act as shock absorbers and help in reducing the noise level, resulting in a more comfortable and safe working environment.

  • Electrical Insulation

    Elastomer profiles are widely used in the electrical industry as insulators, grommets, and cable protectors. They help in preventing the passage of electrical current and offer good resistance to heat, chemicals, and wear and tear.

  • Automotive Applications

    Elastomer profiles are extensively used in the automotive sector for various applications such as weatherstripping, windshield wipers, engine mounts, and suspension bushings. As one type of custom profile plastic extrusion, they provide excellent sealing, vibration damping, and noise reduction properties, ensuring the safety, comfort, and performance of the vehicle.

Properties and Characteristics of Elastomer Profiles

Properties and Characteristics of Elastomer Profiles

1. Elasticity: One of the key properties of elastomer profiles is their ability to stretch and deform when subjected to stress, while returning to their original shape and size when the stress is removed. This elasticity is due to the material's ability to absorb and store energy when deformed, resulting in a durable, long-lasting material.

2. High Resistance to Wear and Tear: Elastomer profiles also exhibit high resistance to wear and tear, making them ideal for use in applications that require withstanding harsh environments or heavy usage. This property is due to the materials' ability to withstand repeated stretching and deformation while maintaining their structural integrity, stiffness, and strength.

3. Chemical Resistance: Many types of elastomer profiles have excellent chemical resistance, making them suitable for use in applications that come into contact with various substances, including oils, fuels, solvents, and acids. This property is due to the materials' ability to resist degradation when exposed to harsh chemicals.

4. Thermal Stability: Elastomer profiles can also exhibit high resistance to temperature extremes, making them ideal for use in applications that involve exposure to extreme heat or cold. Many elastomer materials can withstand temperatures ranging from below freezing to over 500°F, without any loss of elasticity, durability, or other mechanical properties.
