Rubber Manufacturing - Thermal Spray Coating
Until recently, the extrusion and manufacturing of rubber was considered to be one of the most taxing industrial procedures. While large scale rubber extraction continues to be one of most intricate industrial processes, our thermal spray coatings have ensured that the equipment component life and industry specifications are catered to equally. A&A Coatings has a trusted range of coating solutions tailored for the rubber manufacturing industry.
Coating and Spraying Services Offered for the Rubber Manufacturing Industry
Services by A&A Coatings for the rubber manufacturing industry are as flexible and versatile as the rubber itself. Our services start from shielding equipment used for rubber extraction against wear and corrosion to making quality products for the rubber industry. Here are some of our service offerings for the rubber manufacturing industry:
- Polymer Heating
Polymer materials are heated to convert them into diverse compositions commonly known as rubber extrusions. This is done by pushing the polymers at a very high pressure and passing them through diversely shaped molds. The applications of these final extrusions are found in several other industries and they are also sometimes used as end products themselves. However, these processes do come at a cost to the longevity of the components within the heating equipment. A&A Coatings has over seven decades of experience providing quick release and wear resistant coatings to solve these problems.
- Pattern and Cooling
The cooling and pattern application in the rubber manufacturing and rubber extrusion industry is done through conveyor belts. Once the extruded products are ejected out of the machinery, the conveyor belts are used in the subsequent process of cooling after the formation. The same process is used to impart a weaving texture to the end rubber for the purposes of texturing and beautification. Over the years, many wear, corrosion and quick release coatings have been developed to aid this process.
- Release Coatings
A matrix is used by release coatings that are thermal sprayed. This matrix is then passed over a release agent chamber, consisting of either silicone or Teflon. Wear resistance as well as anti-stick attributes come bundled with the release coating benefits. The components that utilize release coatings for thermal spray are extensively used in the manufacturing of food, adhesives and plastics alongside rubber.
