  • Rubber Bumpers and Bumper Boats

    Growing up, I always wanted to try bumper cars or bumper boats. When I was finally given the chance I hated it. It was awful, jerky and not an ounce of fun for me and I have felt no need to try it again ever since. Some people absolutely love it, but for me, it is just not my thing. I prefer to use bumpers for the way they were intended, collision protection and absorption, not intentional ramming. Bumpers are known most commonly for their use on cars. Collisions happen...

  • Profiles from Social Networks to Rubber

    When I hear the term profile , typically I think of it in the computer context. In the incredibly popular Facebook, each user has a profile page. It is a way for them to put up a picture and information about themselves. This could include where they go to school, their interests, relationship status and birthday. Basically, in the social networking world, whether it is Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or something else, the profile is a personalized outline of the individual user (whether or not it is accurate is another subject)....

  • Rubber Extrusions - Worth Your Attention

    In 1999, the United States International Trade Commission undertook an investigation into whether or not extruded rubber thread (ERT) imports from Indonesia were causing material injury to an American industry. The Department of Commerce had determined that the threads were being sold in the U.S. at less than fair value, which, the committee determined, made it too difficult for American manufacturers of rubber extrusions to compete. The Commission decided that Indonesia was indeed dumping its extruded rubber thread on the American market. In response, the ITC instructed the DOC to...

Industry Information

Rubber Profiles

Rubber profiles are processed rubber products. They are produced by a rubber extruder and can be of any length or size. Rubber profiles are the most widely used and manufactured forms of rubber extrusions, and some manufacturing companies deal solely in custom extrusion profile orders, which is quite profitable.

Custom extrusion profiles are used in a very large variety of industrial applications including the aerospace industry, automotive parts industries, medical technology industries and industrial, commercial and residential building. Long, thin extruded profiles are often used as trim, weatherstripping or other types of insulation. Profiles can also be made hollow so that cords or wires can pass through them.  They can be made into sheets, tubes, plates, channels, bars, films and other shapes. They can feature simple cross-sections or complex patterns; they can be square, round, u-shaped, t-shaped or any other configuration. The only determining factor in profile design is need; because of the modularity of extruders and the extrusion process, there are few limits to the number of different profile shapes that can be produced. A rubber profile is made by passing raw natural or synthetic rubber material through a rubber extruder.

Most extrusion lines begin with a collection of raw rubber material, or stock, that is passed through a hopper and directed into a conveyance channel. Within most rubber extrusion conveyance channels is a screw that pressurizes the rubber as it is heated. As the rubber passes through the conveyance channel, it becomes semi-liquefied. At that point it is ready to pass through the die. A die is a tool that is used to mold a raw material into a usable form. A die can be configured in any shape, and for this reason an extruded rubber profile can take any shape. The semi-liquefied rubber is simply forced into the die, and when it emerges it cools, hardens and is ready to be cut and shipped. Most varieties of rubbers can be extruded; depending on the raw materials’ composition, the process requires different processing times and temperatures. Silicone rubber, for example, requires higher temperatures to be become liquefied. If the profile requires additional treatment for improved strength or durability, a number of curative or treatment procedures may be performed to enhance the suitability of the extrusion for a particular application.
