When a designer specifies rubber or plastic for a product or component, it’s because no other material can duplicate the required performance characteristics.
Most design engineers do not have the time to become rubber and plastic experts, therefore, the purpose of this guide is to provide a better understanding of the processes, materials and technical considerations involved in the design and manufacture of custom-molded rubber and plastic parts. By understanding these considerations, you can better control costs while improving the performance of your product.
At Minnesota Rubber & Plastics we specialize in finding solutions to tough applications which require the molding and assembly of close-tolerance components. Our capabilities allow us to offer unified technologies to assist in design recommendations and complete project management to accelerate time-to-market.
