Motorsport: fast-moving development, exceptional performance with rapid delivery.

Motorsport

We have well-established working relationships with major organisations and champions within the motorsport industry. In partnership with designers and engineers, we work closely with our motorsport customers to develop and test new concepts and products ensuring that a competitive advantage is gained from reliable components.

  • FEA (Finite Element Analysis) to test and run scenarios on designs of elastomeric products prior to manufacture
  • Material development, including lightweight, magnetic and electromagnetic shielding
  • Fast track service to meet development deadlines and air freight times
  • Scheduling software to enable us to meet build schedules and spares demands
  • Bonding of rubbers to engineering plastics, metals and composites to provide the most effective material solutions with low friction surfaces
  • In-house tooling for increased control over production schedules and development projects
  • Variety of manufacture methods to enable prototyping and development work prior to full production

The accuracy, quality and fine tolerances demanded by the motorsport industry ensure that we have the correct quality system and control processes in place. The complex and ever-changing requirements  rely upon our Technical Team and in-house tooling department to react and innovate to maintain car development.

Common requirements of the motorsport sector include rubber to PTFE (for low-friction), rubber to metal, anti-vibration products, vehicle seals and gaskets, along with attributes such as tyre rubber exclusion, dust exclusion and reduced weight. Low volumes are catered for with no minimum order quantities.

High-specification materials such as Viton®, Aflas®, Kevlar®, fluorosilicone and perfluoro-elastomers are commonly used alongside more standard components; one of our key areas of expertise is in working with the customer to establish when a particular specification is needed to ensure the best performance. Materials may be developed in order to meet the customer’s needs. High temperature, high tear strength and lightweight materials have been, and continue to be, devloped. Parts may be designed and checked using non-linear FEA (finite element analysis).

We supply into the motorsport sector at all levels of supply chain, including companies specifically dedicated to research and development, suppliers of engines, gearboxes, chassis, electronic components, hosing, composites, suspensions, shock absorbers and springs.

Formula 1, WRC, BTCC, WTCC, LMP1, MotoGP, SBK and Motocross are among the series supported by Martin’s Rubber. We offer a mobile roadshow/training session for entry-level designers into the industry to empower them to make decisions best suited to the application when working with rubber materials.

For specific information about products that we can offer for the Oil & Gas, Petrochemical, Nuclear and Renewables sectors, please follow the links. Here you can find out about the general range of products that we supply in addition to racing rubber products.

If you require auto rubber mouldings or engineering plastics, contact us today on 023 8022 6330, or email us, and a member of our technical team will be able to help.
