Rubber & Silicone molding is a manufacturing process whereby an amount of uncured rubber or silicone is transformed into a usable product.
There are 3 types of Rubber & Silicone molding process:
-Rubber compression molding
Placing a predetermined amount of rubber compound directly into the mold cavity and then compressing it into the shape of the cavity by closing the two sides of the mold.
-Rubber injection molding
In this Rubber & Silicone molding process the uncured rubber compound is heated to a liquid state before being injected into a mold. The product is released by opening the mold and closing it again to receive the next injection.
-Rubber transfer molding
During this Rubber & Silicone molding process the uncured rubber or silicon compound is placed in a part of the mold called a “pot” before being forced through an aperture into a cavity in the shape of the desired product. When cured, the mold is split releasing the final product.
Material from Auwell for Rubber & Silicone molding:
-Nitrile or Buna-N
The most popular and low-cost solution in Rubber & Silicone molding
This is a more expensive hydrogenated variation of Nitrile polymer, which increases its resistance to heat, petroleum products, and ozone almost fivefold.
-Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer (EPDM)
Commonly used in rubber molded products for steam systems, vehicles panel seals, and braking systems due to its high resistance to brake fluid
Resistant to exposure to high and low temperatures, is very flexible and has good weather resistance.
Combines the temperature range advantages of silicone with the resistance to oil, fuel, and solvents found in fluorocarbons.
As a strong multi-purpose material, it can be used in a large number of rubber molding solutions. It has good fire resistant and abrasion properties and is frequently used in the manufacture of mass transit and transportation equipment
A natural product produced from latex derived from the rubber tree
-SBR (Styrene butadiene)
One of the more cost-effective polymers that can be used in rubber molding and is frequently used in the production of tires, diaphragms, seals and gaskets and the mass production of other rubber parts
This relatively expensive rubber compound combines a wide range of chemical resistance and high-temperature properties.
Has a high resistance to gas permeability. This makes it the ideal solution in the production of seals for high-pressure gas and vacuum systems
A fairly high priced, but commonly used material in applications subject to high pressure and constant shock loads

-Comprehensive Solution Provider
Auwell provides comprehensive services for Rubber & Silicone molding parts development starting from designing, through prototyping, tooling/fixture development, sampling, mass production, and to logistic and post-sale support.
-Rigid QC Policies
The most rigorous quality policy starts from material control, and is followed through to final pre-shipment inspection for Rubber & Silicone molding parts orders. Material certificates include the mill certificate, 3rd party chemical components, and mechanical property reports, as well as RoHS and REACH reports upon request. We structure our processes, creating Flow Charts and Control Plans before production, making sure all QC processes are in accordance with ISO9001-2015 requirements and drawing specifications.
-Flexible Payment Term
For tooling, the general payment term is 50%-50%, meant 50% deposit, 50% after first sample free. For mass production, we offer flexible payment terms, reasonable credit terms will be given, the client only pays when they are happy with the product they received. For long-term projects, we offer call-off inventory services for fast delivery requirements.
