Get your low to mid-volume rubber products in as fast as 10 days.
From mold design, mold manufacturing, to the production of your rubber part. The whole process is done in-house, saving you money and time. Our facility is home to a multitude of different presses with varying tonnage. KC Seals can manufacture rubber products in diameters ranging all the way from 1/2 an inch to 16 inches, with a maximum height of 10 inches.
Although there is a wide range of part complexities we can manufacture, with our 150-350 ton vacuum presses, we have the ability to manufacture rubber products with outer diameters up to 16 inches, whereas, on the smaller scale, the parts can be as small as half an inch. Part height-wise, the product could be as long as 10 inches.
The table below shows the RMA “A2” tolerance standards which are commonly used in the Oil and Gas industry. The main reason why there is a need to use a tolerance range standard for a finished rubber product is simply the fact that all cured elastomers shrink differently while it is cooling off after the demolding process. Besides, the same material can shrink differently if the following process parameters are altered: Mold design (Transfer vs Compression molding), mold cavity pressure, different raw material batches, wall thickness of the product, etc.
Setup fees are a major deterrent when looking to source your rubber products. That’s why we moved the whole mold manufacture process inside. Our fully equipped machine shop means significant cost savings for you, consistent quality, and guaranteed lead times. As well as the security that your IP will stay under one roof and not be shipped off to a machine shop you don’t know.
