Trelle­borg Seal­ing So­lu­tions has in­tro­duced the unique Ru­bore com­pos­ite tech­nol­ogy to its prod­uct port­fo­lio. Fo­cus­ing on au­to­mo­tive ap­pli­ca­tions, the in­no­va­tive man­u­fac­tur­ing process al­lows the de­vel­op­ment of com­po­nents that of­fer sig­nif­i­cant weight-sav­ings and un­ri­valled to­tal cost re­duc­tion only achiev­able through this method of pro­duc­tion.

Ru­bore tech­nol­ogy is an ad­vanced pro­duc­tion process used to create a 3 to 5 layer rub­ber-to-metal sand­wich by ap­ply­ing a bond­ing agent to metal car­ri­ers and then vul­can­iz­ing rub­ber to the coated metal. Ru­bore Cap Seals of­fer con­sid­er­able cost and time sav­ings, as well as in­creased seal­ing per­for­mance com­pared to con­ven­tional seal­ing caps. They are per­fectly suited to au­to­mo­tive ap­pli­ca­tions that re­quire static seal­ing on cir­cu­lar holes, such as those fre­quently found in gear­box and en­gine block ap­pli­ca­tions.

The deep drawn Ru­bore Cap Seal in­creases safety in low pres­sure ap­pli­ca­tions with­out leak­age. Due to the unique pro­duc­tion process, a ro­bust and strongly bonded prod­uct is cre­ated. The elas­tomer layer also pre­vents mi­cro leak­age, elim­i­nat­ing the need for ad­he­sives. This per­mits a cost ef­fi­cient, au­to­mated as­sem­bly process with shorter cy­cle times, at a lower cost than com­par­a­tive so­lu­tions.
