What is the rubber extrusion process?

Rubber extrusion begins with a rubber compound that is fed into a feed hopper. It is then fed into a flute with a revolving screw, which carries the rubber into the die. The pressure and temperature increase as the raw rubber gets closer to the die. At a critical point, the rubber is forced into the die that is crafted for the size, shape, and design of the final part.

The built-up pressure pushes the raw material through the opening in the die. As it is processed, it will swell to various degrees depending on the material’s compound and hardness. As the extruded rubber leaves the die, the vulcanization or hardening process begins. During vulcanization, the extruded rubber will swell or shrink depending on the type of rubber compound used.

Once the rubber extrusions exit the die and are vulcanized, they are cut to the size required for the final part using the predetermined and designed cross section of the die. The final part has all the characteristics of rubber with high durability, resistance, and strength. Britech Industries’ parts produced using this process are of exceptional quality and have proven to perform flawlessly in all conditions and environments.

Extrusion Dies

Though Britech Industries has an established set of dies to fit any type of requirements, we can design and produce a die to fit unusual or unique designs. Our team of highly trained engineers, using the latest CAD software, can make your vision a reality. Regardless of the challenge, Britech Industries is ready to meet your demands for rubber extrusions.

Britech Industries manufactures dies using the highest quality of steel blanks. Extrusion dies are precisely engineered and designed by cutting an opening in a steel blank. The shape of the opening perfectly matches the cross section of the finished rubber part. The tensile strength of the die is able to withstand the pressure that builds up as the rubber is forced through it during the extrusion process.

The rubber that is forced through during extrusion tends to swell when passing through the die causing an increase in dimensions. Britech Industries’ dies are made and designed for each individual part to ensure that they meet the required tolerance standards of the design for the finished extruded rubber part. Our engineers understand the factors that affect the finished material after it cools that include the shrink rate, the percentage of size that is lost after cooling. The shrink rate is an important consideration when designing the die since it will impact the dimensions of the final part.

Why choose extruded parts?

Extrusion is a process that is used to produce rubber parts that match a fixed cross section profile. The advantage of this process, over other rubber forming processes, is its ability to produce complex designs and patterns in large quantities with every part perfectly matching the original design. The final rubber extrusions produced have a smooth flawless finish that requires very little after production handling.

Since parts from this process are produced by forcing rubber through a die, they retain the initial tensile strength of the raw material, which is enhanced and solidified by the process. Once a die is produced and accepted, it can be used continuously over a long period of time to produce exactly the same part. Extruding requires very little involvement of labor, which further cuts the cost of the final product.
