Critical automotive systems often require complex sealing components. These seals are needed to enhance fluid management system performance or to protect crucial applications from contamination. Often times, a simple rubber seal is not adequate and a bonded rubber-on-plastic solution provides the necessary sealing performance needed for challenging applications.
Minnesota Rubber & Plastics has the unique ability to provide parts that integrate the benefits of superior elastomers combined with high-performance plastic. Frequently, sealing applications require the performance characteristics of both rubber and plastic in a singular component. These parts need a strong bond (mechanical or chemical) in order to guarantee performance under challenging sealing conditions.
We can leverage our extensive experience with both materials to provide a complete overmolded component that meets the customer’s needs. This materials expertise also allows us to optimize bond strength via part surface preparation, adhesive processing and/or material formulation.
Eliminate the redundancies and inefficiencies of dealing with two different molding suppliers. Let us help design and deliver an integrated over-molded solution for your multi-material application challenges.
