Designing with Rubber
“Moulding is the term given to the processes of shaping or forming different raw materials like rubber, metal or glass using a special shape called a mould,” says an expert from a rubber moulding company, Camberley Rubber. He continues, “The mould acts like a container to hold a molten material while it solidifies. These are typically made of steel as this is a long-lasting material and reduces wear and tear.”

Rubber moulding is the process that creates usable rubber materials from elastomers or untreated rubbers. Elastomers are naturally occurring polymers with elastic qualities, this means that they return to their original form after pressure has been released. This gives them plenty of uses in industrial applications and domestic use as well.
