As contract manufacturers of rubber materials, the highly skilled team at Advanced Rubber Products is able to operate state-of-the-art machinery to custom mold rubber product with outstanding customer service. We use several rubber molding processes including rubber injection molding, compression molding and transfer rubber molding. ARP also has a machine shop onsite, which allows us to fabricate custom metal pieces for molds. ARP contracts with several custom mold maker tool shops for new molds.
ARP has extensive silicone and organic rubber injection molding capabilities. Injection molding offers the most precise and cost effective process of rubber molding in the industry. We are able to accommodate any customer’s mold designs and material specifications. Our expertise does not stop at custom rubber molding, however. It extends to product design for manufacturability and engineering, contract manufacturing and insert molding of fiberglass, metal and other substrate materials.
The rubber injection molding process produces a high yield of durable products, making it the most efficient and cost effective method of molding. We are able to maintain top quality parts and significantly reduce all waste material through a very consistent vulcanization process involving precise temperature control.
In addition, Advanced Rubber Products has the ability and experience to use other molding processes like compression molding and transfer molding. Compression molding is a high-pressure process that places a premixed compound into a custom mold, which is then compressed and forced into contact with all mold areas. If needed, ARP uses an advanced cryogenic flash removal process in which the products are brought to a lower temperature, making the excess rubber compound extremely brittle. The excess material is then bombarded with thousands of tiny pellets and the flashes are completely removed.
