Rubber molding is one of many processes by which raw rubber materials are shaped into useful products. The kinds of products that rubber molding processes can create distinguish molding from extrusion, cell casting and all other rubber shaping processes. Because molded products are processed in an enclosed mold cavity as opposed to through a die, molded rubber can be processed into much more complex and irregular shapes.

View A Video on Rubber Molding - A Quick IntroductionRubber molding is the process by which raw rubber is melted and formed in a mold. It is the method of choice in the creation of many different kinds of complex rubber products. For example, rubber seals and rubber diaphragms, which prevent seepage of liquids or gasses, must be precisely designed in order to fit the equipment in which they are installed. The same is true for rubber grommets and rubber washers, both of which must be precisely designed, because they are used to protect equipment. Extrusion can produce seals, diaphragms, grommets and washers, but an extruded seal or grommet's construction is limited to detail in two axes. This means that an extruder can produce three-dimensional shapes, but it only has design control over the X and Y axes (the rubber product grows in the Z axis as rubber passes through the extrusion die). For this reason, extrusion is more appropriate for the production of simple rubber sheets, rubber baseboards and other long or thin rubber products. Because rubber molding processes use enclosed molding cavities instead of open dies, molding allows for design control over all three axes. Natural rubber as well as synthetic rubbers like neoprene, silicone rubber, liquid silicone rubber, EPDM and foam rubber can all be molded.
