How Does Compression Moulding Work?
The compression moulding manufacturing process involves placing the raw compound into the moulding cavities of a pre-heated tool (see image below). The desired shape and size of the component will affect the shape of the tool cavity, as well as how much moulding material will be required. In order to ensure that the correct amount of material is used, it is weighed before being placed into the cavities of the moulding tool. Once the correct quantities of the raw material have been placed in the tool cavities, the mould will be closed, and the compression moulding process can take place.
Heat and pressure are applied to the moulding, allowing the raw materials to form the desired shape. The mould remains closed until the compression mouldings have cured (set). The amount of time needed to complete the moulding process depends on the type of material being used, the temperature that it is moulded at, and the size of the component.
At CB Frost we have vast experience in creating mouldings to a set specification for a range of industries. Our team are able to advise customers as to the best type of material to utilise for a particular project, and we aim to meet fast lead times at all times.
Sponge And Rubber Washers
Our cutting facilities allows us to produce flat pressed washers as individually cut parts or kiss-cut on rolls for easy peeling (adhesive backed only) and will accommodate all quantities required. CB Frost hold an extensive range of materials in stock (see below) in most thicknesses to ensure we meet our customers’ expectations on turnaround
