Our rubber extrusion department extrudes custom rubber tubing and rubber cord to your specification. The process of extrusion involves forcing uncured rubber through a die to form a desired, uniform, cross-sectional size and shape before curing.
Thomas A. Caserta, Inc. utilizes our sate-of-the-art extruders to produce high quality rubber tubing and rubber cord in a wide variety of materials. Our rubber extruders are equipped with the latest development in control systems and screw and barrel design. All our dies are made in-house and usually at no cost to the customer, which means fast turnaround times for prototype as well as production run extrusions.
We can supply are extruded rubber tubing and rubber cord on spools, cut in straight lengths, or coiled and boxed. We also cut rubber tubing and rubber cord to desired length to form rubber washers, rubber bushings, rubber spacers, rubber gaskets, rubber stand-offs, and rubber discs.
Thomas A. Caserta, Inc. offers the most reliable and reputable rubber extrusion services used in different applications by numerous industries. Our state-of-the-art in-house facility can achieve rubber tubing or rubber cord products according to your unique specifications and requirements.
We’re rubber extrusion manufacturers specializing in custom rubber extrusions to ensure you receive results of the highest quality and meet your exacting standards. Our advanced extruders and experienced technicians can handle any size or shape you require, no matter how complex.
- Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM)
These are the most common material but we are not limited to them:
Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer (EPDM) - Excellent weatherability, good high and low temperature resistance, low gas permeability. Resistant to ozone, steam, water, alcohols, brake fluids. Poor resistance to petroleum oils, diester lubricants. Temperature range: -60°F to 280°F.
Neoprene - Good general purpose elastomer, with moderate oil, ozone and water resistance. Resistant to freons, high aniline points oils, mild acids. Not recommended for phosphate esters, ketones, brake fluids. Temperature range: -65°F to 260°F.
Nitrile - Excellent resistance to petroleum products, excellent compression set; resistant to oil, water, silicone greases and oils. Not recommended for halogenated hydrocarbons, ketones, ozone and sunlight. Temperature Range: -65°F to 275°F.
Styrene-Butadiene Rubber (SBR) - General purpose elastomer, good adhesion to various substrates, good abrasion resistance, good resiliince. Resistant to brake fluids, alcohols, water. Not recommended for solvents, oil/gas, sunlight. Temperature range: -65°F to 225°F.
Silicone - Best overall temperature range of elastomers currently available. Excellent resistance to dry heat, as well as, resistance to low temperature, brake fluids, high aniline point oils. Not recommended for some dynamic applications due to poor tensile strength and tear. Poor in petroleum oils and ketones. Temperature range: -150° to 500°F.
Viton® - Outstanding resistance to the effects of heat, chemicals, and solvents. Viton® has good tensile, resistance and low compression set. Limitations include poor low-temperature properties, limited hot-water resistance and shrinkage. Temperature range: -50° to 600°F.
At Thomas A. Caserta, Inc. our quality objective is to provide our customers with quality service that meet or exceed customer requirements and expectations. Our highly trained and experienced production operators and strict quality control procedures enable us to consistently deliver defect-free products.
Rubber extrusions are a manufacturing process of rubber products. During the procedure, an elastomeric compound is softened, shaped, and pressurized while it goes through a die. The die used is a hard tool that can help make a pliable compound. After that, it's hardened into your desired product with the same cross-section size and shape. But it's worth noting that its form will depend on the die.
Through this manufacturing process, we can achieve the best rubber tubing and cord made with various materials. Our extruders are equipped with the latest control systems, screws, and barrel design technology. We also create our die in our facility, which is available at no cost to help our clients save money while delivering fast turnaround times.
We're one of the leading rubber extrusion companies specializing in rubber extrusion to create products our clients need for their projects. We have perfected our craft through our years of expertise and skills in the manufacturing industry. Plus, it is a process that's economical since it doesn't produce a lot of waste.
The products created through rubber extrusion are also very durable, have a long lifespan, and are heat, chemical, abrasion, impact, and cold resistant. These elements make our services the most sought out by many clients today.
Other benefits of choosing rubber extrusion over other methods:
- Diverse: It is capable of producing different rubber products. But we specialize in rubber tubing and cord, which we can cut in straight lengths or coiled and boxed.
- Quality: Due to its resistance to harsh environments, the products are known to be of the best quality.
- Cost-effective: Small amounts of waste are produced during the process to ensure you're not wasting any money.
- Excellent resistance: It can absorb shock or impact due to its high resistance.
At Thomas A. Caserta, Inc., our rubber extrusions can meet your project's needs. Whatever rubber product you're looking for, as long as our extruders can handle it, we can produce it.
The most common products that can be made through rubber extrusion:
- Rubber bushings: We can cut the rubber cords into your desired shape and length to create rubber bushings. These are shock absorbers, which are used in various equipment. The main benefit of rubber bushings is that they prevent vibration and noise from moving throughout the equipment while isolating the moving parts.
- Rubber tubing, hoses, and pipes: Hydraulic and pneumatic equipment are used with rubber tubing, hoses, and pipes to manufacture food and drugs. You can bend them out of shape without doing severe damage.
- Rubber gaskets and seals: We can produce rubber gaskets and seals through this method, primarily used for weatherproofing. The rubbers used for these products must be chemical resistant and resilient against high temperatures.
