Compound and material selection

Care is needed in the proper selection of the compound. When rubber is compressed through a mold plate, it tends to want to return to its original state. This phenomenon causes the rubber to swell; called Die Swell.

A major role on the size

Each blend type has a different Die Swell, sometimes these are almost identical to each other. However, it can also happen that they are quite different. When this is the case, the sizing is strongly affected. This is why Flevo Rubber Extrusion carefully selects its rubber compound before extruding your profile.

Each application requires a different compound

Of course, Flevo Rubber Extrusion also takes your application into account when selecting the compound. There are hundreds of variants, each with its own character in terms of elasticity, hardness, UV and ozone resistance, oil resistance and many other properties. Here, too, we can offer great added value. We would be pleased to offer you advice on choosing the rubber compound that best suits your specific needs.

In the extrusion of rubber profiles, the design of the mold ( molding plate) largely determines the design. The product sketch, the chosen quality and the chosen rubber type are important ingredients to develop an optimally functioning molding plate.



Good tooling is half the battle. In rubber extrusion, the choice of an extruder is crucial to the result. With the extruder, Flevo Rubber Extrusion turns the supplied compound into an endless product. With our own extrusion plant, you are assured of continuity and short delivery times.
