Posted on 21/08/2017 Category: Rubber moulding
At Martin’s Rubber, we get asked countless questions about our custom rubber products. Therefore, we have gathered your most frequently asked questions and put together answers from our experts in order for you to decide which custom moulded rubber products are the best solution.
What is rubber moulding?
Rubber moulding is the process in which a rubber product is made. At Martin’s Rubber, we use one of three techniques in order to provide you with the moulded custom rubber product that you require. These are: injection moulding, compression moulding and transfer moulding. All of these techniques use heat and pressure to create the product you desire, whether it is for automotive, manufacturing or industrial applications, to name a few.
Each moulding method has both advantages and disadvantages which you can find here. However, at Martin’s Rubber we strive to find the most suitable mould design and moulding method to ensure that your product is manufactured in the most suitable way for the design, application, volume and material in question.
Can I purchase custom moulded rubber products in bulk?
Yes. At Martin’s Rubber, we can provide you with unique, bespoke custom rubber products in quantities to suit your requirements; this might either be one drop of a bulk order, or supplying to a pre-agreed schedule to feed your production line or to meet your customers’ requirements.

How long will I have to wait for my specific custom rubber moulding?
